On Friday, July 31st, 2015 Sylvia’s Restaurant celebrated their 53rd Anniversary by providing free meals and music to the community as well as honoring Sylvia’s long time staff member, Ma Mae.
(REC) C.E.O. and Harlem native Robyn Willard, who is also the Great Grandchild of Cleo Wells – the historic owner of the Wells restaurant and pioneer of Chicken and Waffles; commissioned her Artist S. Whittaker to paint a special piece for retiring waitress Ma Mae. Ma Mae has given her services to Sylvia’s Restaurant for 40 years and has become a staple in Sylvia’s legacy. We wish all the best to Ma Mae and thank the Sylvia’s organization for all they continue to do for the Harlem community.

As 2015 NYFW hits full swing, we couldn’t help to highlight one particular runway fashion show stealing all the attention. It is none other than the 2015 Dwarf Fashion Show. The D.F.S., premiered some extraordinary outfits, from sequin dresses to an entire ensemble made up of $100.00 bills. Dwarf fashion models walked the runway to Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars – Uptown funk, while camera’s flashed creations designed by Creative Business House. The invite only event was covered by mainstream media to give the opportunity to little people to express themselves by bringing an innovative perspective to the fashion industry. The 2015 Dwarf Fashion Show was undeniably, way more high fashion than Kanye’s latest collection and definitely more entertaining. R.E.C. Staff

“The Rise Of An “Empire”
The new show “Empire” starring Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard has everyone watching since it premiered on prime-time television on January 7th, 2015. Empire, shot right out the gate with everything deemed controversial but one character that steals the show is Cookie Lyon, played by Taraji. Cookie, mirrors the Aunt you don’t always invite to your functions but you call to FINISH an altercation. If you take drama, action, music and even a little comedy and throw it in the pot, you’ve got Empire.
Is it safe to say, our Wednesday nights are just as excited as our Thursday’s!
