Harlem’s Cantina (Review)

Cantina 1838

Cantina 1838 located at 1838 Adam Clayton Powell has a great happy hour.  The restaurant has a nice size bar, offers good service, food and drinks.  You can’t go wrong with $2.00 tacos and $4.00 beers and margaritas during their happy hour from 4-7 pm.  We had the chicken, fish and pork tacos along with beer and margaritas.

I am looking forward to dinner there next as they have a great menu including short rib burritos and lobster and chipotle tacos to name a few.  If you are looking for a great “Happy Hour” and authentic Mexican food in Harlem you should definitely try it out.  Here is their MENU.

New Life on Once Iconic Block

Finally a sign of life in the empty retail space on Adam Clayton and 124th st announcing an establishment called New Harlem Restaurant Lounge.

This block, which now has nondescript housing, was once the retail domain of Harlem-reared sports superstar Sugar Ray Robinson who owned a string of businesses on this block, including the popular nightclub Sugar Ray’s, the Golden Gloves Barbershop, Sugar Ray’s Quality Cleaners and Edna May’s (the fighter’s wife) Lingerie Shop.  Last year this stretch of Adam Clayton Powell was renamed Sugar Ray Robinson Way in tribute to the champ.

We look forward to seeing the development of this new restaurant on a once iconic block.

EXPRESSIONS, a mini-exhibit opens at Art In FLUX Harlem

Screen Shot 2013-01-17 at 6.43.36 PM

A new exhibit coming soon at ART IN FLUX.

EXPRESSIONS, a mini-exhibit opens at Art In FLUX Harlem on January 25, 6-9pm along with closing reception for three FLUX galleries


Expressions is an exhibition curated by and displaying the work of interns at Art in FLUX Harlem: Danniella Carter, Dykeisha Hill, Elina Stella, Erin Murphy, Jacqueline Jones, Kachine Moore, Kathy Veliz, Ken Weisensee, Marie Demple, Raven Willis, and Rebecca Alvarez.  Each artist contributes an image with the central focus of expression.  When joined together the images create an introduction to the vast ever-changing forms of human emotion.

Focusing on the portrait by way of painting and photography, the exhibit gives light to the variances of expression through the eye of different individuals.  The artists have based their work for this exhibition on the idea of capturing and embodying human emotion.  The show emphasizes the effect of expression and how it can influence someone’s initial perception of another individual.  Whether it is read from a smile, eyes, pose, or through a gut feeling, expression is an innate form of communication.  Through drawing, painting, collage and photography the interns collaborated to present their own lens to convey the emotional state of an individual.

“A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.” -Cezanne
