What do you get when you mix music and ping pong in the spring? Why, Spring Pong of course! This year, our dear friends at the Maysles Cinema in Harlem are throwing a slamming ping pong party at SPiN New York to raise funds for the Maysles Documentary Center. Some of the hottest DJ’s in NYC, like Sarah Lewitinn, Chairman Mao, Nancy Whang,  and Stormin’ Norman, will be mixing while guest challenge each other to some friendly ping pong matches.

A silent auction will also be held featuring some limited edition Maysles Cinema posters signed by documentary legend Albert Maysles, and even a chance to win a coffee date with him at our very own Red Rooster Harlem. All proceeds will go directly to the cinema and documentary education programs at the Maysles Institute.

We all witnessed a bit of history pass through Red Rooster’s doors yesterday, as artist Philip Maysles stopped by to install his new exhibit of his work. This new 5-piece collection on Red Rooster Harlem’s walls was inspired by the great American artist Norman Rockwell’s painting “The Problem We All Live With.” As explained by Philip, he had seen Norman’s painting in 2005 at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and noticed a connection between the painting and the school kids that were touring the museum at that time. He wondered “to what degree have we been able to transcend those same racial issues today?” Read More
