There is always something happening in Harlem, and summer is no exception.

There is always something happening in Harlem, and summer is no exception. Last week the Black Chef Series kicked off at Blujeen with a collection of chefs, including Chef Max Hardy (@ChefMaxHardy), and this week Chef Max continued the celebration at Lenox Avenue specialty clothing boutique Harlem Haberdashery (@HaberdasheryNYC, 245 Lenox Ave., 646-707-0070, www.harlemhaberdashery.com) for Sip & Toast, a monthly curated evening of food, cocktails, clothing and charity.

Sip & Toast welcomes fashionistas and foodies to experience cuisine by Chef Max and his special guest chefs: Chef Mark, Chef Kermit Mackey, Chef Jr. and Chef Stephan Durand. Each chef will create a dish to be paired with a crafted cocktail from sponsor Baron Tequila (@BaronTequila). There will also be a live art performance, and the finished product will be auctioned for charity.

The next Sip & Toast events will be held Wednesday, Aug. 24, 6:30-9 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 24, 6:30-9:00 p.m. Tickets are $50 each. A percentage of ticket sales will benefit Big Brothers & Big Sisters (July), #TakeCareofHarlem (August) and Boys & Girls Club of Harlem (September).
