We are headed west!
So psyched to announce the second in our whirlwind schedule of once-a-year Soup & Bread tours: My hometown, the beautiful Seattle, WA (where it looks just like that photo ALL THE TIME). We have teamed up with the awesomely energetic Suzie Strait and a bunch of local cooks to stage a soup night at the Funhouse to raise money for Food Lifeline.
Cooks on board include Strait, Pike Brewing, Publicola editor Erica Barnett, artist and Stranger columnist Derek Erdman, artist Sarah Kavage (creator of the Industrial Harvest project), Soup Swap creator Knox Gardner, and legendary Seattle rhythm section Greg Stumph and Charlie Ryan — with more still TBA. Bread donations generously, graciously provided by Essential Baking and others.
It’s Sunday, January 30, from 5:30 to 8 at the Funhouse, 206 5th Avenue N. There’s no cover, but donations, all of which go to Food Lifeline, are encouraged. (Monetary donations only; no food please.) A benefit show follows at 8:30 with Partman Parthorse, Whalebones, and Man Sized Heartache. There’s a $6 cover for that.
Spread the word!
ETA: This just in! More bread generously being donated by Jerry Corso and Gina Tolentino from Bar del Corso. Thanks Jerry and Gina!
ETA YET AGAIN: Russ Battaglia, of the late, lamented Lola’s South City Bakery, is donating bread as well. He says he is “currently residing at St. Dames.” Wherever he is, I hear he’s an ace baker — though to arrested-development me he’ll always be Russ-from-Fallout. Thanks, Russ!
