A Tupac inspired pop-up cafe opens in New York City

Tupac fans line up to buy merchandise featuring the late rapper and eat food at a pop-up cafe derived from his 20-year-old notes on an anticipated restaurant.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (APRIL 6, 2017) (REUTERS) – Rapper Tupac Shakur’s vision for a restaurant is coming to life in New York City.

Twenty-one years ago the musician charted out plans for an eatery called the Powamekka Café, and Universal Music Group’s Bravado brand is bringing it to fruition for three days.

The space is home to the Lower East Side restaurant Sweet Chick and will feature mac ‘n’ cheese, cheese fries and Pac’s wings, which his cousin Jamala used to make for him.

Fans will be able to see personal photos from Tupac’s estate, music memorabilia and purchase items created especially for the pop-up.

The pop-up will be open from April 7-April 9.
