A return to elegance in the historic village of Harlem.  The day has come for Minton’s to open officially to the public Monday, October 21st.  The Cecil next door and jointly owned just opened last month with a bang and hasn’t stopped since.  Already considered in a league of it’s own in this area.  See our previous write up on The Cecil Restaurant in Harlem (Review).

We look forward to celebrating the reopening of Minton’s with such a past history of Harlem’s jazz greats when it was once called Minton’s Playhouse.  This venue will require that men wear jackets.  The attire (dress code) is formal and it will be nice to see women and men fill the room with a diversity of styles while enjoying live jazz music.  A very timely decision to open (reopen) this historic jazz club with Harlem on the pulse now more than ever in the New York scene.

Looking forward to experiencing Minton’s next week.  Dress to impress and come out to enjoy good jazz and what looks like to be great food.  Take a peek at the menu below.

Here are a couple photos of entrees you can expect from the menu.  Looking forward to trying the Rib-Eye steak.  Minton’s MENU.

West Harlem PiersFor the last time this summer, you can go west coast swing dancing in Harlem.  West coast swing is one of my favorite dances – sort of a cross between Lindy-style swing and salsa.  It is danced to all kinds of music – R & B, pop, blues, rock, even hip-hop and country.

 The event is run by Paula Wilson – an amazing dancer, in partnership with Paula WIlsonRiverside Park as part of their Summer on the Hudson programming.  I saw Paula & her partner Ken Kreshtool perform at a party a couple of weeks ago at Stepping Out Studios.  What a treat!  I was lucky enough to get a dance with Ken, who is a terrific leader with a lot of musicality and some very smooth moves.  The dancing goes from 6 pm – 9 pm this Saturday, September 28th at West Harlem Piers Park (West 125th St. and the Hudson River).  Paula will teach a lesson at about 7 pm and the entire event is free.  If you know West Coast, come and show your stuff; if you’ve never done the dance, come out and give it a try!
