Lots of Soup for you!

Why is it that whenever I think of soup it immediately brings to mind the classic episode on the t.v. show Seinfeld and that famous line – “No soup for you!”
Well fortunately for us here in Burlington there is an event coming up with lots of delicious soup for all.  The annual Soup Bowl event held at the Burlington Art Centre’s Shoreline Room is happening November 17-20 and this year we have a whole table of us going on Friday for lunch. 

Here is how it works.  You choose a fabulous handcrafted ceramic soup bowl from the hundred of choices made by the BAC Potters guild members.  Then you fill it with your choice of gourmet soups made by local restaurants.  Add a crisp, fresh salad, roll and yummy ice cream for dessert.  The best part is that and you keep the bowl you chose, a volunteer wisks it away, and it is returned to you clean and packed for you to take home!

 The most difficult task is trying to decide which bowl and soup to chose.  The local restaurants support this event by providing the delectable soups and salads to assist this annual fundraiser. 

Over the years I have gotten a number of beautiful bowls in many shapes, sizes and colours that I proudly display at home and use for dips, Christmas candies, and soup of course! 

The Soup Bowl sells out quickly, in fact the Friday lunch is sold out so you need to reserve your seat early to avoid disappointment.  There are still spaces available for Thursday, Saturday and Sunday lunch (12 noon) and Friday evening (6 pm).  You can book tickets online or purchase in person at the Burlington Art Centre.

With the Christmas Sale presented by Arts Burlington going on at the same time at the Art Centre, it is a great opportunity for you to do some shopping for the art lover in your family.  With over 95 Canadian Artisans participating, there is a lot to choose from for everyone on your gift list.  I usually pick up some great hostess gifts, stocking stuffers and one of a kind items for that hard to buy for someone.  I also have bought some lovely items for myself to jazz up my holiday wardrobe.  There is no fee to attend the Sale and the parking is also free.  The sale hours are from Thursday from 11 am – 3 pm, Friday 11 am – 9 pm and Saturday and Sunday 11 am – 4 pm. 

For more information about this event or other things happening in Burlington contact Tourism Burlington at 905 634-5594. 

Enjoy your soup and the sale.
