One of my favorite things about living in Salt Lake City is all the restaurant options. You should all know by now how much of a Foodie I am (working on getting my YELP account to Elite status). FOOD = LIFE. It’s funny because I keep thinking I have eaten at most restaurants here in Salt Lake City, but then Daniel keeps introducing me to the best hidden gems in town!
Last Sunday we were invited to attend a “Gospel Brunch with a whole lot of SOUL” at the Gateway Mall. After exchanging emails as well as finding out more about the event from their marketing manager we were in!
“There is great food supplied by Cubby’s, Bloody Marys made with Titos Vodka, coffee from 3 Cups as well as amazing live music by the Debra Bonner Unity Gospel Choir.”
We both went in not knowing what to expect. Since there was food involved, and live music, what more could we ask for?
When we first walked in we could tell right away how well organized this event was! The outdoor set up had this “intimate acoustic concert” feel. While the inside (where the food was) had this 5 star restaurant feel to it.
There were a lot of different choices for the food and we couldn’t just pick one! I mean, just look at all the pictures below… We were full by the time we left the event!
Our spread varied from fresh fruit, breakfast burritos, biscuits and gravy, coffee, and tea.
Mimosas + Delicious Crepes = YUMM!
Live music was provided by Debra Bonner Unity Gospel Choir, a group of 40 singers that will bring you to your feet – clapping, swaying and stomping to the “joyful sound.”
We aren’t really Church going folks, as we do our own spiritual thing, but man oh man… That was awesome! I couldn’t help but smile from ear to ear as the beautiful music hit our soul!
Brunch with the love of my life… Delicious Food & great Music! What more could this girl ask for?
We Loved when they sang Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror:
I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself, and then make a change)
Unfortunately this was the last brunch of the season! I sure hope that they bring it back next year! Another awesome thing that happened was running into my friend from High School. She and her husband were part of the choir. So fun!
After we enjoyed ourselves. We headed over to the theater at the Gateway and watched the new Spider-man movie. (Must watch BTW)
The Gateway was looking awesome! We couldn’t help but notice the improvements that have been made. I sure hope that they bring back the mall I used to know. There is so much potential here. I miss visiting it. Unfortunately there aren’t as many options as there used to be back in the day… Here is hoping that The Gateway continues to grow once again!
Disclosure: Nina Talks has received tickets for this awesome event. All opinions are my own. I 100% recommend you to attend one of these events!
