Harlem4Obama – At The Brownstone Lounge

By HarlemHouse                                                                                                              Something of interest worth checking out which I am passing along for a friend.  Harlem4Obama – POTUS’ 50TH Birthday Campaign Launch Party at the impressive new Brownstone Lounge.  It will be held on Thursday, August 4th from 5:30pm – 8:30pm.  Join Harlem4Obama for President Obama’s 50th Birthday and the launch of Harlem4Obama 2012 with a Harlem House Party.   Note a recent review on July 24th of The Brownstone Lounge by Harlem+Bespoke.   I was there recently for drinks and had a great time.  Nice atmosphere and the music was good.  I look forward to going back on August 4th for the Harlem4Obama Party.

See you all there!

Harlem In The Hamptons (or is it The Hamptons In Harlem)?

By HarlemGuy                                                                                                                                 One of my favorite pastimes while traveling is looking for references to Harlem.

So I was pleasantly surprised to see the following roadside sign while driving back from a recent trip to Amaganset in the Hamptons.

Curious, I ran in to confirm what I suspected.  As many of you may know we have a Levain Bakery right here in Harlem’s Gold Coast / Restaurant row, on the West Side of Frederick Douglass Boulevard, between 116th and 117th.  A few steps away from Harlem Tavern, Lido, and a few blocks away from Melba’s, Society, Five & Diamond, Bier International and Zoma, to name just a few.

That being said I took the opportunity to stop by, spend a moment with one of the owners and the staff who were of course suitably dressed.  I particularly loved the Harlem 10026 T-shirt!

I love that we have a little piece of the Hamptons in Harlem.  Better yet, I love that there’s a little bit of Harlem in the Hamptons.

This is made all the sweeter (no pun intended) when you consider that Levain bakery is also one of Oprah’s favorites.

And of course my favorite cookie is what else but Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip.

Of which I promptly purchased several.

In Harlem, of course (smile).
