First Fridays


Join us for "Flashback Friday" as we take you back to the '90s with DJ Smoove Ski. DJ Ski tears up the airwaves with his signature style of spinning. He also spins at Jay-Z's 40/40 club and will be on the 1&2s for First Fridays at the Schomburg.

First Fridays will feature hors d'oeuvres from Farafina Cafe & Lounge and Les Ambassades—featured restaurants in NY African Restaurant Week (NYARW).  NY African Restaurant week is a bi-annual cultural event inviting people from all over to celebrate the best of African cuisine, wine, chefs, artisans and restaurants across the city. Some of the participating Restaurants include Madiba, Farafina Cafe and Lounge, Les Ambassades, Jollof, Queen of Sheba, Ponty Bistro, Tolani, La Caye, Le Souk Harlem, and more.
