Lets Eat @ the Red Rooster in  Harlem- popular restaurant

This restaurant's global soul food, a "We Are the World" mix of Southern-fried, East African, Scandinavian and French, is a good honest value. But it's outshone here by the venue itself, with its hobnobbing bar scrum, potent cocktails and lively jazz.

      If you are coming from Mt. Airy, we could commute and park in the lot in front of the loading station for the Megabus and split parking costs if you are interested, Robin

  • Montara T.

    I had to make some changes to this meetup. I had a tour guide that volunteered to give us a tour and they canceled. I tried to find a replacement and was unsuccessful. I called tour companies and the charge was[masked] and up. I decided to make some changes to the meetup because I did not want to cancel this meetup. Please review what I have listed below, provide feedbacks, offer suggestions and remember your opinion matters.

    Apologize for the change

  • Montara T.

    Update: I had to change the date because the tour guide is not available to do the tour. She wasvolunteering her time to give the tour. I did research online and there are tour guide companies that charge[masked] per person. I apologize for canceling the event due to the tour guide telling me she's not available. Maybe we can still go to NYC for dinner and show.. Please leat me know your thoughts or suggestions about this meetup
