HipHop

they also offer

The Writing's on the Wall Walking Tour of Harlem

a street art tour

by

Lady "K" Fever

The other day I took a graffiti 

themed walking tour

in Harlem.  

It was great fun and fascinating.

Since I was in the neighborhood

I decided to have lunch at

Marcus Samuelsson‘s 

Red Rooster.

Our friendly

poolside bartender 

also recommended

Casa Juan

for a Cuban dinner

but I think we should 

have asked our

Cuban Tour Guide Oscar

It was good 

but not what we expected

Oscars favorite spot is in

Little Havana

no surprise

very good and fresh
