Where can I find Patti LaBelle’s Sweet Potato Pie In Harlem?

Where can I find Patti LaBelle’s Sweet Potato Pie in Harlem?

We don’t know.   We hear it’s only available at Walmart.   C’mon Patti give Harlem some love!

In any event,  thank you to Michael J. Feeney for bringing ALL OF IT to our attention through his reporting via social media.   Make sure to watch the video below.

Everyone needs a good laugh, and the pies are really good.   We hope you get your hands on a Patti Pie for this Thanksgiving.  If you do make sure to share your story.

Patti LaBelle gave a call to the man whose review of her sweet potato pie rocked the Internet.

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!

Celebrate Summer Solstice On June 21, 2015


The longest day of light in the year “summer solstice” is Thursday, June 21, 2015.  This is also Father’s Day.  Plan ahead and make special plans to celebrate summer solstice outdoors for Father’s Day and enjoy an extra long day of sunlight.

Summer solstice: from Latin sol “sun” and stitium “standing still”, because seen from the earth it looks like the sun halts in its tracks going northward, and moves back south.

The June solstice dates vary.  For example, it’s on June 21 in 2015, but on June 20 in 2016. A June 22 solstice will not occur until 2203. The last time there was a June 22 solstice was in 1971.

*Keep an eye out for a new Podcast “Summer Solstice Compilation Mix” coming soon from HarlemHCL.  Embellish your day and celebrate with a custom soundtrack of chillout, soul, house and latin music.


‘Solstice’ (Latin: ‘solstitium’) means ‘sun-stopping’, because the point where the sun appears to rise and set, stops and reverses direction after this day (Ill: Not to scale)

Harlem Condo Life (Review) Koko Wings – Manhattan Valley

My husband, daughter and I stopped by recently when we were looking for a place to eat. We saw Koko Wings on 106th off Broadway and looked at the menu. We gave it a shot and enjoyed it.

Koko Wings is about 1 month old and they have


great Korean wings. They are delicious and come in Hot and Spicy, Garlic  flavored or a combination. I had the hot and spicy wings, my husband had the boneless. I ordered the sweet potato fries and they were served with a honey mustard dip which I enjoyed. It comes with a side so I had the cole slaw which was delicious too.

We can’t wait to got back or order in!
