Neil Patrick Harris is hosting the 2015 Oscars, so of course commercials of him have been all over TV — but his latest promo has nothing to do with him handing out those golden trophies to big-time movie stars.
Harris’ newest project is set to be his own NBC variety show, and he gives us a tiny peek in his new ad.
The clip shows Harris, 41, getting ready to perform a big number on a time crunch with lots of dancers behind him.
“I only have 15 second to tell you about my new really big show,” the actor explains. “So I thought instead, why don’t I perform a thrilling number to give you a glimpse of what’s coming. Let’s do it!”
Right before the number begins, someone off stage yells “we’re out of time Neil,” and the commercial ends.
Although the clip doesn’t say too much about his new show, it has been reported that the series will be based on the UK series “Saturday Night Takeaway,” which means musical numbers, comedy sketches, celebrity pranks and A-list guests.

Right next door to Harlem Shambles, located on Frederick Douglass Blvd between 115th and 116th Street, a new restaurant will be opening. We learned of this this morning.
The new place will be called blujeen! Apparently, it’s going to offer Southern cuisine. That’s what a worker onsite offered. Hmm.
That’s all the details we have at the moment. Stay tuned! As more details become available, we will pass along!

Happy New Year Harlem! Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday!
We are back in Harlem after two weeks away and we noticed some activity outside the commercial space where ModSquad, the bicycle shop, use to be, which was on Frederick Douglass Blvd between 114th and 115th Street. We asked the folks standing outside whose moving in? We were told Harlem Skin Clinic. This business has been house inside Land Yoga space since the Ashantga center opened more than two years ago. Looks like they are branching out and getting their own space. Good for them and continued success!

First it was restaurants opening in Central Harlem. Then coffee shops followed. The next trend seems to be hat stores! A new hat store recently opened at 139 West 116th Street in Harlem called Shatzi Life. They sell everything from hard hats to scarves and gloves to snowboarding hats for adults and kids. It is a very cute place! I bought a cute reindeer hat for my daughter and a Coal hat for me. Coal hats are made in Seattle, WA!
If you need a unique gift for someone, this boutique hat store is a nice option to consider for shopping! Here is their website as well!
Happy Holidays Harlem!

While we were all enjoying our Thanksgiving holiday, Harlem’s celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson decided to break news to The New York Times that week about his next restaurant opening in Harlem, which will be where else….but on Harlem’s restaurant row, aka Frederick Douglass Blvd. from 110th Street to 125th. The actual location will be on the southwest corner of 116th Street and FDB–right by Harlem Tavern and Silvana. The name will be Streetbird Rotisserie. His first Harlem establishment is Red Rooster. All the info above was confirmed by his PR rep.
When I learned of this news, the things that came to mind was why not open a place on FDB to begin with? And why open a restaurant there now?
Opening is set for Spring 2015, which in the restaurant business means Summer or Fall 2015!
So much for that diner my readers keep asking for! It ain’t happening.

There is one big company, which has a presence in Harlem, that is making a bold statement by being a leader and not a follower. DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse has decided to remain closed on Thanksgiving Day and not follow the insanity that’s typically been happening over the years, which is to open ahead of Black Friday, Americas’ annual holiday shopping frenzy the day after Thanksgiving.
The CEO of DSW made the decision to not be open on Thanksgiving Day because he believes their workers should be home celebrating with family. Another translation: putting people first ahead of some measly revenue generated a few hours before Black Friday!
This blog couldn’t agree more with DSW’s position and plans to shop Black Friday at DSW Shoes in Harlem. HarlemGal salutes DSW Shoes for their recent decision to stay closed on Thanksgiving Day 2014 and is asking its readers to join this blog in acknowledging DSW online or with your pocket book on Black Friday. Let the holidays begin!

If you’re wondering what’s up with all the construction around the southeast corner space at 116th Street and
Frederick Douglass Blvd in Harlem, it’s rumored to be the new home of next door Kennedy Fried Chicken and Pizza. Apparently, they want more space and prominent location.
This should please my mother and nanny. They love this place for its inexpensive hamburgers and fried chicken. It’s also a place with good ethics. My daughters’ nanny left her wallet in there a few months ago unknowingly. My babysitter thought she left her wallet somewhere else. Fast forward to several months later, my nanny walks into Kennedy’s to purchase food and the owner says to her, “where have you been? I have something of yours!” It was my nannys’ wallet with everything intact, cash, credit cards and metro card, etc.
For my daughters first birthday party, I made sure to buy all the boxes of pizza from there! Good work ethic and decent food, deserves good business.
Stay tuned for Kennedy’s opening at their new location on 116th and FDB in Harlem.
