What You'll Get
Harlem and soul food are a classic pairing, much like Abbott and Costello or political campaigns and free stickers. Witness a dynamic duo in action with today's Groupon: for $67, you get one Soul Food and Jazz tour admission to Harlem Spirituals. Tours depart every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday at 7 p.m. from 690 Eighth Avenue near Port Authority.
Harlem Spirituals' professional guides maneuver sightseers through a five-hour evening bus tour of Harlem's historical music venues and soul-food restaurants. Explore the sites of the original Cotton Club and Savoy Ballroom, where Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman regularly vibrated air particles with their big-banded boisterousness. The tour route also slides past the grand Apollo Theater and the intimate Minton's Playhouse, where Miles Davis famously abandoned his career of drawing mustaches on portraits of Senator Joe McCarthy to develop bebop. Tours also make a pit stop at neighborhood mainstay Sylvia's Restaurant to sample authentic southern soul food. Nosh on fried chicken and black-eyed peas or muffle the sounds of shrieking trumpets by stuffing ears with collard greens.
