“You’ve heard me say that black people had to work really hard to get out of the kitchen and now they have to work really hard to get back in — I don’t want you to think I’m being negative.  For decades, many blacks were reluctant to pursue a profession that was associated with servitude.  If you went to school it was to become a lawyer or doctor.  Older generations didn’t understand why one would spend money to learn how to chop, peel, dice, and sauté vegetables when that trade could be taught at home.  The attitude was that those jobs were beneath us and there were better opportunities available; why would anyone want to work in a kitchen?”

As if you already needed a reason to check out the scene at Red Rooster in Harlem, now with DJ Stormin Norman spinning this Friday night? Well, just get there early because it is going to be a full house!  Everytime that I have been to Red Rooster waiting at the bar for my table to be ready, when it is ready I silently feel like saying “Oh, but I am having so much fun here at the bar!”  So now you can come into the bar and have fun with DJ Stormin’ Norman spinning upstairs the best Soul, Latin, Classics, Hip Hop, House, Funk and so much more the whole evening.   I have plans downtown Friday night (that I cannot get ut of) but I am passing through just to see and hear at least some of Norman’s set.  See you there!!!
