Brunch In Harlem

Brunch'n'Harlem Brunch In Harlem HarlemCondoLife

Saturday and Sunday Brunch in Harlem is serious business – an event that is not to be missed.

It’s all about legendary, newly established and up and coming restaurants, often at full capacity, serving a wide variety of great food, to well-dressed locals and visitors from the world over, in one of The City’s hottest neighborhoods.

Stay tuned as we identify several of our favorite places below, which include the Five and Diamond, Red Rooster, Melbas, Harlem Food Bar, The Cecil, Chocolat, Sylvia’s, Lido, Maison, Kitchenette and Vinateria – to name just a few.

A word to the wise.  Harlem’s Restaurant Rows are easy to stroll.  However be warned:  Be hungry.  Have a place in mind.  Pick a backup. Get there early.  Don’t always expect to be seated right away it may take a few minutes.  Don’t rule out making a reservation  which you can do via Opentable, etc.   Basically, apply the same rules you would apply elsewhere in NYC.  But whatever you do, do check out Brunch in Harlem!

Rest In Peace Frankie Knuckles

Frankie Knuckles

Last night legendary artist Frankie Knuckles passed away, as reported in excellent detail by the Chicago Tribune and Rolling Stone.    

He died too young of what has been reported as Diabetes by music leader www.Beatport.com which can be managed and which is taking the lives of so many in our and many other communities.

Let’s take today to rejoice in his life and tomorrow to celebrate his legacy.  We should also take a moment to focus on our own health.

A number of health oriented events are coming Harlem’s way including some focussed on Diabetes.  Please see the list below and take a moment to attend, if not for you, then for your friends and families.

But before you do that, take a moment to enjoy the iconic Frankie Knuckles, who will truly be missed.

Public Service Message: You still have time to sign up for Obamacare

Share the three ways to signup for Obamacare today

 A public service message from HarlemCondoLife.com.  Please share this with friends, family neighbors whether or not they live in Harlem.

More than six million people have enrolled since October 1.1 Tens of millions more have seen other benefits like being able to stay on their parents’ plan or get covered with a pre-existing condition. The percentage of Americans without health insurance is the lowest it’s been in five years.2 In other words: it’s working.

MoveOn members fought our hearts out to get the Affordable Care Act passed as a step closer to quality, affordable health care for every American, and we continue to fight to make sure it gets fully implemented. That’s why we’re aggressively campaigning to expand Medicaid in the more than 20 red states that refuse to do so, leaving millions more Americans without affordable health care.

But in the meantime, there’s still time to make sure that your friends and family who don’t have health insurance sign up for Obamacare.

Share this with everyone you know because you may not even know which of the people in your life don’t have health insurance. If everyone you know sees this before tonight’s deadline, they’ll be one step closer to having affordable health care.
