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!
One of our favorite restaurants is Thai Market. They are adjacent to Harlem and deliver into Harlem. They are reliable, courteous, quick, well priced, and the food is always great, always consistent in taste, quality and quantity. I realized just how much I like them (and just how bad the conditions are in Harlem tonight) when I called and they told me they could not deliver to my area (which includes Restaurant Row) because it is too slippery. Which I totally understand.
If you have not tried this place, please do. It’s great.
What other cuisines would you like to see in Harlem?
This picture has been floating around social media sites again recently. Such a simple yet powerful image. A rainbow of colors. A beautiful and important message.
Love the skin you are in.
“Just show up
Just have a presence
And just make a loud noise
because we all want to be heard”
“Phantom of the Opera” featuring Norm Lewis begins on Monday, May 12, at the Majestic Theater. “Phantom of the Opera” is the longest running show in Broadway history. It’s a turn-of-the-century tale of a deformed composer haunting the Paris Opera House, where he lures in a young singer. Thirteen men have played the role of Phantom on Broadway, but the one making headlines is Norm Lewis. Norm Lewis plays Sen. Edison Davis on ABC’s “Scandal,” but the role as Phantom is his biggest yet.
