      1. What I wouldn't give for a better memory!

        Up on Roselawn, just east - within spittin' distance - of 35E, is St. Sumbuddy's Church. They are preparing for a booya sometime this month. There's a sign up at the NE corner of Roselawn right as you come across the bridge over 35E, or one block further east.

          There's also a church, again I think a St. Sumbuddy, in the West End that has a yearly booya. St. Stanaslaus??? They put a sign on St. Clair, right where the off ramp from 35E hits St. Clair.

          I'm sorry for the lack of hard info, but it's the best I can do at 2:30 AM w/o grtting in my car and driving to the two locations. I hope it's a little helpful.

              Booya is a stew But, it's really more than that, at least in the Twin Cities. Churches and other community organizations often throw events they call "booyas" as fundraisers, typically in the fall. So, in this context, the OP is asking for booya events in the area. The city of St. Paul actually maintains a booya shed in a city park that is available on a rental basis. There are 3-4 of these ENORMOUS kettles in that shed, then sort of a covered pavillion picnic area, and lots of picnic tables. I always try to go to at least one booya per season.
