Feels like it’s been too long since the last one but we can all get our groove on again this Sunday from 3PM- 7PM in Morningside Park at 114th street and Morningside Drive. This Sunday spinning on the decks will be DJ Tommy Bones & Brian Coxx and of course the crowd pleaser… DJ Stormin’ Norman.

If you have not yet witnessed one of these classic summer parties that are fun for the whole family, do yourself a favor and pass through this Sunday and check it out.  As the slogan says “GOOD MUSIC FOR GOOD PEOPLE”

See you there and lets all pray for NO RAIN!

Bier International

By HarlemHouse                                                                                                                            One of HarlemCondoLife’s favorite spots from day one of the opening is continuing to get more and more popular.  As HarlemGal & HarlemHouse have informed you this is the spot to be!  Now that summer is here, Bier International has their sidewalk certificate to expand all the goodness to those who want to dine and drink outside as well as inside.

Bier International

Everytime I have guests over from wherever other than Harlem they always ask “whats that place?” pointing to Bier International.  Because It is always crowded and inviting you to check out what it is that you are missing out on.  I always say this is one of the newest most successful spots to open on “Restaurant Row” Frederick Douglass Blvd. here in Harlem.

Stop by  any night and have a beer or appetizer, or a great dinner and judge for yourself.

Hello summer and the ongoing progression of Harlem and all the new opportunities and facilities it is offering to all of us living here.

Questan’s, which just opened last summer… is jumpin! Finally dined there last Monday night and had a great time.  There is more going on than meets the eye if you are just walking by the front of the place.  As you come in on your right there is a takeout section. Since they are conveniently opened until 2 and 3am throughout the week this is good to have. See Express menu they have a large Seafood selection for takeout.  Through the main entrance after walking down a short hall you approach tables on the left, a very large full bar on the right and a DJ booth elevated on the back wall.  There is a live DJ every night.  The bar has two flat screen TV’s overhead.  Great if a game is on and you want to watch it muted while listening to tunes and talking with friends.  It was a little chaotic the night I was there which is a good thing for a Monday night.  The weekends must get packed.  We sat at the corner table and had drinks and dinner.  Good drinks and generously poured.  You could easily just go there to chill at the bar with an appetizer or two if all the tables are full.  To begin with we enjoyed the Jalapeno Cornbread.  Then for starters had the Fried Calamari, Lobster & Shrimp Spring Rolls & the Lobster Bisque soup.  All were good but the Lobster & Shrimp Spring Rolls were phenomenal.  Dinner was very good.  Only two of us had entrees the Grilled Shrimp with Spinach & the Broiled Scallops with Homemade French Fries.  Both the Shrimp and Scallops were fresh and delicious and the Homemade French Fries were perfect.  Its a very large menu to choose from especially considering the size of the space. Im heading back again to try something different next week.  Doris Wade (Dee), the owner, wasn’t there the night I was but the charming Mekkie, (bartender/hostess/waitress) waited on us and the service was excellent.  DJ Huggie was spinning a great selection of HipHop and R&B keeping the vibe good.  it’s one of those spots that when your finished eating dinner you want to stay longer and just hang out.  Good crowd, good food, good music and good drinks.  Dee mentioned to me that she is working out a House Music night for either Thursday or Sunday nights in the near future.  Stay tuned I’ll keep you posted when it’s definite.

Im happy to see how successful Questan’s is.  The front of the Restaurant says “Live, love & laugh” with a message like that how can you not be successful. Definitely left me wanting to go back for more.  Another great addition to Harlem.

Take advantage of “Eat Shop Play HARLEM this month for Restaurant & Retail.  Questan’s is one of the Restaurants included on this list which offers a Prix Fixe menu for $20.10 from February 15, 2010 – March 15, 2010.  *Questan’s also delivers.

When I first moved to Harlem a few years back there were a ton of empty/abandon lots.  I am finding lately that these lots are now becoming extinct and there are only a few left – at least in Central Harlem. The last of the Harlem lots are within a one mile radius.

There is the lot on the corner 110th Street and Manhattan Avenue. There was a building there for years-now its an empty lot. Head east on 110th Street making a left onto Frederick Douglass Boulevard and there is another empty lot between 112th Street and 113th. Keep going down FDB and there is an another abandon lot at 117th Street.

HarlemCondoLife (FDB btw 112th & 113th St.)

Why am I focused on these empty lots? Simple. I believe these lots won’t stay empty for long. They will face the same destiny as the space on 114th Street & FDB, 115th & FDB, or 122nd & FDB.  To my knowledge, all of the new construction mentioned were previously abandoned lots. Now we can speculate forever on what’s going to happen with these new buildings whether they will go condo, rental or vacant, but the truth of the matter is space does not last long especially when its located near two wonderful parks, such as Central Park North and Morningside Heights Park. What I see every day on my way to work: Harlem’s structural landscape continues to change even during the most volatile of times. I believe the old adage applies to these empty lots: “take a picture, it last longer.”

98.7 Kiss FM is broadcasting on Frederick Douglass Boulevard today between 113th and 114th Streets in Central Harlem. They are promoting the new branch for MetroPCS, which we blogged about a few weeks ago. To go along with their promotion, they are raffling off tickets to a reggie concert. If you want to win concert tickets, stop by! They will be there all day today!
