Lots to celebrate this coming Monday. And if you need a place to celebrate in Harlem, Ginny’s Supper Club in Harlem, 310 Lenox Ave, is inviting us all over. In celebration of Martin Luther King Day and President Obama’s second inauguration, Ginny’s Supper Club will host two special events.
The first is an inauguration watching party at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, January 21st. Guests can order from Marcus Samuelsson’s acclaimed upstairs restaurant and Red Rooster Harlem, while watching a live-feed of the inauguration downstairs at Ginny’s Supper Club. In 2011, the President Obama held a swanky fundraiser at Red Rooster Harlem and in 2009, Marcus Samuelsson was chosen to cook the Obama Administration’s first State Dinner.
The celebration of Dr. King’s dream continues into the evening of January 21st, with a two-set special performance by Amanda Brown of The Voice. Brown’s performance will be complemented by excerpts of Dr. King’s iconic “I have a Dream” speech. Ginny’s small plates and playful cocktails will round out the celebratory evening. Guests can make reservations by calling 212-421-3821 in advance. There is no cover. Shows start at 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.

Harlem, listen up! A reader contacted me this morning reminding me tomorrow (June 26) is a very important day for Harlem and the newly drawn 13th Congressional District of New York City, and could this blog remind Harlem locals to get out tomorrow and vote! Absolutely! We all need to get out and vote tomorrow and here is your reminder!
What’s at stake in tomorrow’s primary election? We, the voters, get to decide who is going to win the Democratic Seat for Congress. Representative Charlie Rangel, who holds the seat now, faces Democratic State Senator Andriano Espaillat and Clyde Williams.
So no matter how your day is lined up tomorrow or no matter what your political views are, please, please, please pencil in voting and don’t forget to deliver on going to the polls to vote June 26. The outcome of the 13th District is in your hands. Let’s seize the moment!
And a big thank you to the reader for sending in this story idea! Much appreciated!
