An Evening in the Raw
1210 Touro St.
6 PM to 10 PM

Come and get delighted in a banquet with the fresh flavors of the summer, and kindle the fire of your soul with measureless pleasures. Raw is not a complacent, but an encroachment on the thrill of the original temptation. Concern for your body is not the law but transgression when you eat. The delicate pleasure of the Raw will ravish you at The Milk Fig. Spices and godly liquors will make your companions more comely. Kaya Nicole touches her lyre by the light of incense bearing candles, plus a special intermission from Bailey Lewis. Remember everything in our menu is plant-based, gluten and soy free. Staying away from refined and processed ingredients. [via South of Eden]
