The Perfect Night (4/29/17)

Saturday Beth Reed and I went to El Kallejon, a FABULOUS (and very affordable!) Mexican restaurant on East 117th Street in Spanish Harlem. It was the best food I’ve had in years, with maybe the exception of Mama Rosa’s (a very expensive restaurant I went to with Linda) in Gramercy, back in September.

We had tiny turberón (baby shark) tostadas and pork tenderloin tacos: the best food ever!! Plus 2 margaritas each; plus complimentary sangría; plus complimentary tiny-tiny fresh crab tostadas for “dessert.” It was absolutely delicious!! I want to come back here and have my birthday in their outdoor garden.

Then we went to see In the Heights (Lin-Manuel Miranda’s first rap musical, set in Washington Heights) at the Harlem Repertory Theater. We had terrific seats (at $7 each!) The stage was open and the actors/dancers moved among the audience as well. Great fun!

My photos didn’t turn out so well at the end: guess I couldn’t stop dancing! Enjoy anyhoo!

(Note: for more on Beth Reed, see my posting, The Power of One. She’s amazing!

    Great Atmosphere,indeed, would like so much to attend. You should invite the “greatest” “president” of America ever, he likes the Mexican culture so much, as every body knows.
