A Soul Food Pop-Up Aims to Raise Money for Black Lives Matter and the LGBTQ Community

On Monday June 22, SoulNia owners and life partners, Kamiya Willoughby and Tess Hurlburt are set to host a pop-up dinner at The Bindery in LoHi. Known for offering vegetarian soul food with a purpose, SoulNia will present a four-course menu including drink pairings to the soundtrack of soul music and old school rhythm and blues mixed by KDJabove. It will be available for both take-out and limited dine-in seating.

The light southern cuisine fare will include a southern pearl shooter (seasonal melons and cucumbers marinated in honey, cayenne and lime), mama’s trio (whiskey barrel cornbread, vegan macaroni and cheese and slow cooked collard greens), zucchini fritters and a sweet potato casserole.
