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.
Pork, Chicken anf Fish Tacos
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.

HCL readers may be interested in this documentary of the acclaimed play de novo that tells the true story of a 14 year old boy from Guatemala, who chose to leave his life with a street gang in search of his mother and a better life in the United States. The story, crafted from immigration court transcripts, interviews, and letters, describes his legal struggle for asylum to avoid being deported back to Guatemala, where the gang he left behind had ordered his execution. Two showings are scheduled: November 13th at 7:30 pm and November 14th at 12 noon, at El Museo del Bario (Fifth Avenue and 104th Street).
This event is sponsored by the Libertas Center for Human Rights, in partnership with Houses on the Moon Theater Company and the Mount Sinai Global Health Program. On November 13th, there will be a panel discussion following the film with Dr. Dinali Fernando (Libertas Center Medical Director) and Leah Weinzimer (Libertas Center Program Director), Dr. Craig Katz (Mount SInai Medical Center), and Morgan Allen (CCCS Unaccompanied Minors Program Attorney). Tickets are FREE, but please reserve them in advance: http://www.elmuseo.org/event/de-novo-13/.

For 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 Riverside 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!
