Happy Easter Harlem from all of us here at HarlemCondoLife.  With Easter being such an important holiday for many of us here in Harlem (and around the globe) we hope you have a healthy and happy Easter with your family, friends and loved ones.  And take a little time to reflect and give thanks.  Be grateful for today and every day and for those less fortunate than you, send some extra love their way.  For those of you also going to church this morning, where are you having your Easter Sunday lunch/dinner?  Get ready Harlem, it is going to be a busy and blessed day!

Here are a few suggestions in Harlem where you can watch the Presidential Election Results roll in.  Click on the links below to find out what each restaurant has planned.  I know many of them, including Lido, Melbas and Red Rooster will be serving specialty cocktails and patriotic drink specials.

Stop the DJ, pause your iPod and for 2 hours Oct 16 at 9pm watch the second Presidential Debate.  If you are looking for a place, Harlem Food Bar will be one of several showing the debate Tuesday at 9PM here in Harlem.  For 2 hours CNN political correspondent Candy Crowley will moderate President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney in this Town Hall style format.

For the first debate I was in Miami and asked a buddy/DJ friend of mine “what bar/lounge is the best place to watch the debate here in South Beach?” he said “Why? nowhere”  He was right we ended up at our hotel lounge which was lacking quite a bit of… shall we say flavor and was mostly routing for… shall we say the other guy.  Needless to say it is great to be back in NYC and specifically Harlem and have as many options as we do to view the debates.  Thanks to places like Harlem Food Bar, Lido’s, The 5 and DiamondCorner Social and other Harlem businesses that help to keep us informed and send the message that this Presidential Election is  an important one for Harlem and for our Country’s future.

We have just received the promotional flyer and official news for the GRAN RE-OPENING of Les Ambassades Bar & Grill.  The celebration will be held on Friday, August 24th, 2012 at 7PM – 10PM.  This is an opportunity for other businesses, restaurants, bar/lounges and residents to welcome them to the neighborhood.

Over the past few weeks they have had Saturday night gatherings with DJ Breeze reintroducing the newly renovated Les Ambassades to the community.  The two events that we blogged about of Ambassades have been well attended with an enthusiastic crowd and great vibe.

The customers of the already successful Patisserie des Amassades on Frederick Douglass Boulevard’s restaurant row will certainly want to try out Ambassades new location on Lenox.   It will cater more to the bar & restaurant crowd which frequent Red Rooster, Corner Social, Chez Lucienne and other hotspots in this area of Harlem.

Please see our previous write up on Les Ambassades Bar & Restaurant Now Open  and make sure to check out their Grand Opening.

Hope to see you there!
