SOUP'S ON
AT 9TH ANNUAL 
TASTING COMPETITION

A local soup-tasting gourmet event
has grown to enormous popularity:

SOUP'S ON
Soup & Dessert Contest
Kirkwood, Missouri 
(It's the 9th annual competition!)

Finer area restaurants are invited
to enter their signature soup/desserts,
and serve at a public tasting
(with critical judging, and awards)
thus promoting their business.

Even the promoters
are surprised - no shocked -
at how large the event has grown.

30 restaurants filled tasting-bowls
for everyone attending Sunday's event
for $10 at the door.
(Thousands lined up an hour before opening.)

The results are now in:

Best Soup -- Poblano Chicken Chowder
(Canyon Cafe)

Best Dessert -- Red Velvet Cake
(Ritz Carlton)

(Proceeds from this event are donated
to Manor Grove Assisted Living.)
