Celebrate Martin Luther King Day and President Obama’s Second Inauguration at Ginny’s Supper Club in Harlem

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.

Dear Harlem: If we could only clone Martin Luther King Jr.

As we celebrate Martin Luther King Day today, all I can think about are a few things, such as why do all the good ones have to die young?, what would MLK think of our leaders today?, and if only we could clone Mr. King? My answer to these posed questions. They just don’t make him [leaders] like MLK anymore. Oh, how we need leaders like MLK. I miss that about America. We just don’t see leaders on a national stage who can move and inspire us anymore. Hopefully that will change one day. I am hopeful.

Today we celebrate and honor the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a national day of service. There are so many ways to spend this day. However, HarlemCondoLife has chosen to echo to its readers the suggestion of many countless organizations. They recommend that everyone celebrate MLK Day by giving back to your community.  If your not sure how to give back, there is still time to find a community service project in Harlem or throughout New York City now or in the immediate future.
