Happening: Taste of Soul


This Saturday is the third annual Taste of Soul festival. If you haven’t been before, the mega event is put on every year by the Los Angeles Sentinel to “bring the black community together for a day of fun-filled entertainment.” Sure, three stages worth of live music and stalls upon stalls of art is great and all, but we all know why you’re going: the soul food.

We mean a whole street’s worth of fried catfish, hushpuppies, shrimp gumbo, banana pudding, jerk chicken, beef brisket, pralines, fried chicken, and more barbecued ribs than you can possibly ever eat.

The whole shebang—hosted this year by Brian McKnight—takes place tomorrow on Crenshaw between Martin Luher King Blvd. and Rodeo Rd.

Be there!
