With Activities And Events For the Whole Family
September 29, 2012 – Harlem, NY – Whether you’re a foodie, a yoga enthusiast, aspiring dancer or family looking for fun activities to keep the little ones busy, you can find it at this year’s Harlem Harvest Festival. Harlem Park to Park, a community improvement association in Central Harlem, the hub for New York City’s premiere dining, shopping and nightlife destinations north of 110th street, will present its third annual Harlem Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 6, from 10am to 4pm. The event will take place in A. Phillip Randolph Square at St. Nicholas Avenue, between 116th and 117th streets, as the kick off event for Harlem Park to Park’s annual Oktoberfest.
The Harlem Harvest Festival, which drew more than 2,700 attendees last year, has grown even more this year with vendor participation including businesses from Central and East Harlem, as well as upstate farms and wineries. Bread Alone, Horman’s Pickles, Brooklyn Cured Sausage, Breezy Hill Farm, Knoll Crest Farm, Cider Hill Farm, Glebocki Farm, Thousand Island Winery, Community Markets, Cabot Cheese will all participate, along with performances by the Dance Theater of Harlem, live music from a salsa band, and great activities for the kids. Also featured is the annual cook-off event, this year featuring the “Battle of the Avenues” pitting Lenox Avenue restaurants, Sylvia’s and Corner Social and for Frederick Douglas Blvd., 67 Orange and Harlem Tavern. The restaurants will square off on omelets and entrées.
“The Festival has become a wonderful way to showcase the best of our amazing local businesses, not only to our neighbors, but also to the rest of the city as we invite everyone to travel uptown and experience first-hand one of New York City’s most exciting new shopping, dining, and nightlife destinations,” said Nikoa Evans-Hendricks, Executive Director of Harlem Park to Park.

Several Harlemites have $20.11 posted on their Facebook or WeHarlem pages and it’s not a reminder of the current year. It’s locals reminding us through social networks that it is restaurant and retail month right here in Harlem. From April 15 to May 15, select local businesses are offering special deals. If you’re wondering who is participating, see the complete list below.
Last year, I went to Chez Lucienne and enjoyed the meal and deal very much. I wonder where I should dine this year for this occasion?
And a big thanks to Harlem Park to Park, who is once again leading this effort to promote all the wonderful retail businesses we have right here in Harlem.

I just learned more details about the after party talking place this Monday, February 14 for the Girls Night Out screening of Jumping the Broom. The after party will take place at Hue-Man Book Store around 9 p.m. when the screening is expected to end. Those that get into the film screening of Jumping the Broom will receive tickets to go to the after party at Hue-Man!
In addition to HarlemCondoLife.com being a partner for Girls Night Out screening of Jumping the Broom and now Hue-Man, I have also learned that Harlem Arts Alliance, Nectar Wine Bar, Bikram Yoga, Twirl, BodyHeat by NyLean25, Munaluchi Bridal Magazine, and the planned Cupcake Suite are partners as well! And don’t forget, the after party will include complementary hair styling and make-up application from Empire Beauty School and giveaways from SendHerFlowers.com, Complete Body and Spa, and 8 Minute Dating.
So if you want to attend this after party, you need a ticket to the film screening. Go here to get your ticket. I must stress, there are no guarantees on ticketing, as in most things in life!

For all you yogis out there (and non-yogis too), this is for you! The founder of the original hot yoga will be speaking in Harlem for the first time ever. If you would like to hear Bikram Choudhury speak, he will be at The Riverside Church of New York on May 22. See details below. Namaste!
