Happy Memorial Day Holiday Weekend Harlem

images

We’re feeling the holiday spirit and wanted to share this all time classic “A Lover’s Holiday” by Change.  Maybe you remember it :-) ?

Regardless, if you feel it, share it.  Let’s hear it all over Harlem this weekend!

Looking forward to hearing this for sure at the next Sundae Sermon.

Not a cloud showed out in the sky that very night in Pitch Black City
I was so damned scared, it was dark, it was so dim, it was a shame
Just then a man walked up to me and said: “Didn’t I see you here before?”
The lights were low and the party was so dull, just not good enough

Holiday (Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)
Holiday (Holiday, what you say?)
Holiday
Celebrate (Ah, yeah!)

Holiday
Holiday (Oh, I, I)
Holiday
Celebrate (Oooh!)

Then we both held hands in each other’s for a chance to start it moving
He reached deep inside of his vest and in his hand he held a ring
Let’s have lunch, picnic or a brunch in the wintertime
Let’s disco down in a roller skating ring in Alaska town

Holiday (Holiday)
Holiday (Oh, come on, celebrate)
Holiday (Ooohooohooohooohooo)
Celebrate

Holiday (Got the feeling, come on, keep ahead)
Holiday (Reelin’, holiday, yeaheah)
Holiday (Oh!)
Celebrate

Not a cloud showed out in the sky that very night in Pitch Black City
I was so damned scared, it was dark, it was so dim, it was a shame
Just then a man walked up to me and said: “Didn’t I see you here before?”

President Bill Clinton kicks-off #HarlemEatUP festival, which is now well in progress, with a great opening speech.

A little bit of rain came through but it has passed and we are ready to eat some good food and try some great wine in this packed crowd!

Good to see Bill Clinton back in Harlem where he use to have an office on 125th street for many years.

Enjoy the festival!

Celebrate Summer Solstice On June 21, 2015

Solstice-460x460

The longest day of light in the year “summer solstice” is Thursday, June 21, 2015.  This is also Father’s Day.  Plan ahead and make special plans to celebrate summer solstice outdoors for Father’s Day and enjoy an extra long day of sunlight.

Summer solstice: from Latin sol “sun” and stitium “standing still”, because seen from the earth it looks like the sun halts in its tracks going northward, and moves back south.

The June solstice dates vary.  For example, it’s on June 21 in 2015, but on June 20 in 2016. A June 22 solstice will not occur until 2203. The last time there was a June 22 solstice was in 1971.

*Keep an eye out for a new Podcast “Summer Solstice Compilation Mix” coming soon from HarlemHCL.  Embellish your day and celebrate with a custom soundtrack of chillout, soul, house and latin music.

‘Solstice’ (Latin: ‘solstitium’) means ‘sun-stopping’, because the point where the sun appears to rise and set, stops and reverses direction after this day (Ill: Not to scale)
