2Pac's Estate To Hold A Pop-Up At Nas's Sweet Chick Restaurant
With Tupac Shakur‘s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame fast approaching, his estate is launching a few exclusive, limited-edition moments for hardcore fans.
In conjunction with Bravado, a Universal Music Group merchandise and brand management company, and Sweet Chick, a popular New York restaurant — fans, friends and foodies will be able to witness ‘Pac’s original restaurant concept, the Powamekka Café.
Taking place from April 7 – April 9 at 178 Ludlow Street in New York’s Lower East Side, Powamekka will be a place for all to “play and parlay,” while dining on the finest “down home Southern” cooking one has ever tasted. Sweet Chick, owned and backed by John Seymour and Nas, will redesign itself to fit the original design conceived by the late, great Death Row MC.
Written within three handwritten pages of his notebook, Powamekka was to be a place where friends, family and loved ones could get together and “escape the worldz cold reality,” according to Pac’s own words. There will also be a carefully curated collection from Pac’s archives, which include personal photos from his childhood, his poetry and music memorabilia from his favorite artists and favorite dishes he loved.
We can’t wait to try the gumbo and his cousin Jamala’s fried chicken wings.
“Tupac’s creative vision was limitless. He was constantly working on ideas and plans that reached far beyond music and film,” Tom Whalley, trustee of The Estate of Tupac Shakur, said in a released statement. “One of the things he was extremely passionate about was opening a restaurant; he even sketched out plans and a concept for a menu. We are proud to bring Tupac’s Powamekka Café to life.”
Hurry fast and reserve, as they will be taken by restaurant technology company, Reserve, on a first-come-first-serve basis. Do it now here, and keep an eye out for us to be eating up a storm this weekend.
