President Bill Clinton at HarlemEatUp! Festival



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!
