Harlem Joint

I had such a great time on Sunday at this wonderful place in Harlem called the VFW.  Its a spot in Harlem that takes you back to the past.  Jazz Music to live for!! Musicians stop by and sit in. The food is great. The audience is filled with people from all over the world. Its a small place, perfect for good music, good food and a great experience. Its on 132nd street on the west side of Harlem. Reminds me of the Harlem Nights movie with Eddie Murphy.  The musicians are really good, never know who will drop by to sit in for a set or two.  I LOVE HARLEM!
