Perna's Cajun and Soul Food

Watching live painting demonstrations while listening to the soulful sounds of jazz music and dining with friends sounds like the perfect way to spend the weekend to a lover of the arts like myself. As soon as you step through the doors of Perna's Cajun and Soul Food Restaurant your eyes will be drawn to the beautiful and lively paintings that surround you on every wall. Then your soul will begin to move to the beat as the greatest hits in jazz play through the speakers. Just my luck this was interchanged with live music being sung by a local musician. The place has a real down home feel that helps to put you in the perfect mood of relaxation. Peruse the board and decide on your favorite cajun soul food cuisine to top everything off and you're set. I was able to enjoy the first Sunday Soul Sip thanks to Dalila of Starving on a Budget. I really enjoyed sipping on endless mimosas, getting my brunch on and catching up with some of my favorite foodie friends. I can't wait to attend this event again, and for Perna's to open to the public. For more information about Perna's click here
