She's calling the it "Extra Large," and it's set for 3 to 8 p.m. Saturday, April 20, at Marathon Music Works. The event takes place on Record Store Day, so there will be live music, as well.
But the most intriguing aspect is who she's invited to help her throw the party: a lineup of four well-known chefs from around the country. They'll be cooking up "their own interpretations of traditional Japanese foods," Gavigan says.
"My goal was to bring ramen to Nashville. The next step is bringing MORE ramen to Nashville, so I invited four incredible chefs to join me," Gavigan says. "We will be serving three distinctly different bowls of ramen and an assortment of traditional grilled meats called yakitori."
Otaku South has staged 20 different ramen pop-ups since kicking off in September. "Events like ‘Extra Large’ are exactly what I love to do, bring people together for a great afternoon of music, food and fun," Gavigan says. "The fact that it’s Record Store Day, makes it even better.”
Admission to the party will be free. Ramen bowls (available in three varieties) and a mixed yakitori plate are all $12 each. There will be a full cash bar.
