West Indies Soul is closing (sound: wailing and moaning)

Because of the Job From Hell (TM), I don't get over to the Midtown Global Market very often. (Read almost never.) So I haven't been funneling my dining dollars to the places I love at the MidGloMo. Tragically, the result is that my beloved West Indies Soul is closing on Feb. 25th. No more walk-up jerk chicken, curried goat, stewed red snapper, spicy beef pasties, or those amazing, addictive greens.
I am completely and utterly bummed. And I'm planning to call in sick next week so I can eat there once more before they close. If you, like me, appreciate West Indies Soul's food, I recommend that you hie yourself thither - very soon - for one last meal.
HeavyTable has one small crumb of brightness amidst the gloom: Sharon Noel will continue to be available for catering. I wonder if I can convince my office to have a Caribbean lunch?

This is very sad news. I've been a patron of West Indies Soul since their early days on University in St. Paul.
Can anyone point me to another source for Jamaican Patties? There used to be a little Carribean market on East Lake that sold them frozen, but they closed a few years ago. Mail order is so very expensive. Help!

marla's used to have patties, i haven't been there in a while. harry singh's would be another good bet.
i am also very sad to see them close. this economy is killing the little establishments left and right :(

What I was told was that business wasn't good enough to justify keeping it because it was interfering with the catering. They will remain at the state fair.
