On Wednesday, May 10, 2017 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m., the Frederick Douglass Boulevard Alliance (FDBA) will hold its sixth annual Food & Drink Boulevard event along Harlem’s Restaurant Row. Food & Drink Boulevard kicks off the summer in the city and invites local residents and visitors to explore restaurants and bars along the Frederick Douglass Boulevard corridor from 112th to 124th Streets by reserving a wristband to receive $5.00 deals at 19 participating venues, which each feature its own unique flavor and vibe.
Participating bars and restaurants include 67 Orange Street, Angel of Harlem, Bier International, Blujeen, Chocolat, Custom Fuel Pizza, Harlem Burger Co., Harlem Food Bar, Harlem Tavern, Hop House Harlem, Lido, LoLo’s Seafood Shack, Moca, Row House, Savann, Silvana, Streetbird, Vinateria, and W XYZ Bar at Aloft Harlem. The Harlem Community Development Corporation is presenting the event, and other sponsors include Best Market, Bohemia Realty Group, Columbia University, GoNoFee.com, and Spring Bank.
To assist patrons in navigating up and down Frederick Douglass Boulevard, FDBA is offering free pedicab service to wristband holders, and a mobile device-friendly map that shows where all 19 participating restaurants and bars are located, as well as each businesses’ $5.00 menu offerings. Food & Drink Boulevard will also feature a raffle of exciting prizes, including gift cards to participating restaurants, a one-month membership to Land Yoga, and more. Raffle tickets can be purchased on the night of the event at Angel of Harlem, 2272 Frederick Douglass Boulevard. All proceeds from Food & Drink Boulevard raffle ticket sales will support FDBA’s small women- and minority-owned business promotion, street cleaning, and community building initiatives.
