Maya and Marcus at the Three Goats Inaugural Fundraising Cocktail Party

The story of Three Goats began in November 2011, when Maya visited Ethiopia after reading about the water-crisis and resulting famine that was affecting her and Marcus’s birthplace. In an effort to provide relief to the devastated areas, they quickly organized a Brunch for the Famine in The Horn of Africa to raise money for much-needed resources. Maya flew to Addis Ababa and visited Mother Teresa’s Missonaries for Charity where they advised her on the greatest area of need for clean water and food. Knowing the dangers of traveling in the region, Maya insisted on heading to Togowichale, a border town between Ethiopia and Somalia severely endangered by the famine to provide relief to nearly 1,000 people in the area. To thank her for her generosity, the people of Togowichale presented Maya with three goats. While she couldn’t take the animals back to the U.S., she brought back the idea to start Three Goats.

Detroit ’67 at The National Black Theater in Harlem

By Mac Malikowski | April 3, 2013

Detroit 67

Detroit ’67, the new play by award winning playwright Dominique Morriseau, runs until April 12th. You really should try and go. The show is as comical as it is dramatic and tickets are pretty inexpensive for such a professional community theater. The cast is incredibly funny and talented, effortlessly making optimum use of the shows single set (the way the story moves though, it feels more like there is half a dozen). Read More

A Celebration of African Heritage and Health

By Sarah Dwyer | February 12, 2013

African Heritage Potluck Dinner

A few days ago, you couldn’t find my kitchen table as I anticipated correctly that every corner was covered by bowls and dishes of leafy greens, cabbages, millet, black-eyed peas, sweet potatoes, and layers of injera – the traditional whole-grain flatbread of Ethiopia. These were just some of the menu items I planned for an African heritage potluck I hosted to commemorate African Heritage & Health Week. Read More

Restaurateur of the Year award with Glenn Coleman, Crains New York Business (l), Andrew Chapman and Marcus Samuelsson of  Red Rooster, Joseph F. Kirk, Wells Fargo (r) during the MCC 2012 Awards Breakfast.

In front of a crowd of 250 NYC executives and business owners, Red Rooster Harlem was honored with the 2012 Restaurant and Hospitality Award from the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce. The annual breakfast, given every year in honor of those who have built outstanding businesses and contributed to the economy and community, was originally scheduled for October of last year but was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy. The devastation that the city and our outer boroughs faced served as a reminder of how important it is for NYC businesses to rally together and help each other in times of need.

Election Party 2012

Whether you voted Red or Blue, the scene at Ginny’s Supper Club last night was pure adrenaline and emotion.
