Breast Cancer Awareness month overrun by men

Last but certainly not least, the Harlem Skin Clinic at 2116 Eighth Ave. has a holistic organic skin food that's good for the soul-and it's only $20.11.

With costs beginning at $20.11, and not just for the month of October, the Posh Paws Grooming Salon offers a dog walking and grooming service for your pooch. Located at 2121 Eighth Ave., they service breeds from small to large and include clipping of nails and ears. They also provide pet supplies and natural holistic dog and cat food. For more information, call (212) 662-7674. Who says Harlem doesn't provide any services?

The South African Consulate General, together with the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, hosted a wine tasting and networking reception in celebration of South African Heritage Month at the consulate office.

Meanwhile, the African nation of Nigeria celebrated its 51st anniversary of independence with a parade down Lenox Avenue. The parade included representatives from all of the nations highlighted by drummers, dancers and marchers dressed in their traditional garb. The nation also celebrated with a down-home street fair in Dag Hammarskjold Park, and you had to be there to get the Zizi experience. Zizi caters only the finest events-none are too small or too big-providing the tastiest beef shish kabob, chicken drumsticks and whole fish with just a dash of spice.

Congratulations to Inez Mack, who just became a grandmother. Happy birthday to Eleanor Gore and Louise Jap Williams, who is hosting the throwdown to end all throwdowns-but more on that next time.

Until next week...kisses.
