The fourth annual SOUP’S ON! Stewpot Alliance Luncheon and Art Sale is set for January 24 (11 a.m. – 1:15 p.m.) at Union Station downtown. I’ve bought several pieces of art at this event and I urge you to attend. Especially this year. The keynote speaker is Jeannette Walls, author of one of my favorite books, The Glass Castle. Music will be provided by the Hamilton Park Men’s Choir.
Food? Oh, yes. A stellar line-up of chefs will be on hand: Chef Brian C. Luscher of the Grape Restaurant is first chair. His roster of talent includes Randall Copeland and Nathan Tate (Restaurant Ava); Bruno Davaillon (Mansion), Kevin Garvin (Neiman Marcus), Keith Hanks (Capital Grille), Matt McCallister (Campo Modern Country Bistro ), Abraham Salum (Komali, Salum), and Janice Provost (Parigi).
Jump for the details.
