Well, that title is a bit of a misnomer. I didn’t actually hop on the trolley last night as I just walked to one of the participating venues, but just go with me on this.
I was really not in the mood for any sort of activity after getting out of work at 6 and had every intention of going home, but I decided to head to Pregones Theater anyway, where Afro-Cuban musician Gene Golden was performing and being honored as a Bronx Living Legend by the Bronx Music Heritage Center.
Golden performed along with Clemente Medina and Los Amigos and what was cool was there were musicians in the audience who hopped up on stage and started playing and singing along. It was definitely a nice way to end the evening.
For those who have never experienced the Bronx Culture Trolley or its various events (Bronxites and non-Bronxites alike), it is THE best way to get a taste for the culture that is growing and thriving in the borough and go somewhere beyond the zoo or to Yankee Stadium.
