Omaha’s Soul Food & All That Jazz

Carver bank front

Last Friday, Omaha's Yelp Elite Squad gathered at Carver Bank, an arts space that's a collaboration between internationally renowned artist Theaster Gates and the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts. At Carver, Elites were treated to a spread of soul food classics from Omaha's own Big Mama's Kitchen and Big Mama's Sandwhich Shop (sweet potato cheesecake bites, anyone?). And in addition to Big Mama's super-refreshing Cranberry Sun Tea, Elites also sampled some Pilsner from Borgata Brewery & Distillery and an array of wine provided by Lyft – all enjoyed to a soundtrack of classic Soul, R&B and jazz thanks to DJ Kobrakyle. If the reviews that are rolling in are any indication, the event was a hit! See the action for yourself on Flickr.

Thank you to our hosts, Carver Bank and Big Mama's Kithcen & Sandwich Shop, as well as Borgata Brewery & Distillery, DJ Kobrakyle and Andrew Lachance Photography.
