The winner of the Corner Social mural competition is Paul Deo. Congratulations to Paul and to all of the finalists for participating. I think it is great that Corner Social and the Harlem Arts Alliance involved the community with this mural project for the restaurant. The mural is very much in character with the comfortable vibe of this popular neighborhood hangout mixing a modern future with an historic past.
The outdoor mural is scheduled to be unveiled on Tuesday, November 27, 2012. This will add a colorful and artistic addition to the already historic architecture and restaurants on Lenox Avenue.

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!
Need something to do every third Friday of the month? Looks like Slyvia’s on Lenox Avenue has the solution with the help of the Harlem Arts Alliance! All the details are below.
I plan on checking this event out! What about you?
