Soup’s on!


Soup and Bread

Wednesdays* through April 1
5-8 PM at the Hideout
1354 W. Wabansia


Cold? Hungry? Sad and lonely? We have the answer, and the answer is SOUP.

Every Wednesday this winter the Hideout presents a free weekly dinner featuring soup prepared by Hideout staff, regulars, local chefs, and maybe even a few “celebrities.” We’re aiming for three soups per week–but some days there might be more, or less. What goes in the pot is up to our guest soup chefs. Because they’re volunteering their time and energy, we’re not going to be bossy and tell them what to make. (Vegetarians, we are doing our best to ensure at least one meatless option each week–but no guarantees.)

ALL SOUP IS FREE–but we will pass the hat each week. Donations go to the Greater Chicago Food Depository, which can do a better job of feeding the truly hungry than a few well-meaning barflies can.

Soup is served starting January 7.

Our inaugural SOUP CHEFS are:

Hideout bartender Anastasia Davies Hinchsliff
Celestial Kitchens pastry chef Celeste Dolan
Swim Cafe



*No soup February 11

    Very good question! I haven’t figured out where wordpress put the “contact me” function, but I will. in the meantime, interested soup chefs should shoot me a message at marthacotton [at] earthlink [dot] net and we’ll figure something out.


  3. Nicole Says:

    Do you need to be there at 5 to get soup, or can you show up anytime between 5 and 8?

  4. Martha Says:

    Any time. Until, you know, we run out.
