Get a taste of Harlem with the EatUp! festival

Harlem: It's a 4-mile fusion of different cultures, a melting pot of unique foods, music and art. Initially founded in the 1700s by the Dutch, Harlem has gone through many different migration cycles -- it has brought together a slew of people from different backgrounds, races and identities over the years, resulting in a vibrant blend of cultures.

There's no place like Harlem -- if you get a chance to visit the eclectic neighborhood, GO!

The Harlem EatUp! Festival combines all the elements we love about the neighborhood. The festival, which is in its third year, congregates some of the most influential faces in Harlem's cultural history. You have the opportunity to spend time with Harlem's hottest musicians, artists, chefs and brewers during the festival, which ends May 21st.

Awesome night with @dominiquecrenn and @swimsuit_issue for @citi #HarlemEatUp dinner.

Dine with renowned chefs like Marcus Samuelsson, a co-founder of the event, attend a dinner party in one of Harlem's most exclusive restaurants, celebrate the weekend with fine wines at the Ultimate Grand Tasting -- the festival has it all.

We'll be there and you should be, too.
