The Scenario: Mom’s in town for the weekend and you need to plan some good, pure fun.
The Solution: Skip Sunday mass and go for food instead.
1300 on Fillmore’s bi-monthly gospel brunches prove that you can be spiritual without going to church.
The deal? A three-course prix fixe meal with a side of house band, Future Perfect, featuring restaurant owner Monetta White’s friends from Oakland’s Imani Community Church. An instant hit, Monetta’s gospel brunches have become a regular gig at 1300 on Fillmore, so with mom in tow, we decided to check it out.
