Our friend Meg Guiffrida is putting together a fundraiser for the Martha O'Bryan center called "Soup & Bread" next Wednesday Dec 7th at our taproom from 6-9 PM. Several local chefs, food writers, and other good cooks will be on hand with their best soup recipes, served with fresh bread from Provence Bakery and pints of Yazoo beer. The event is free, but we will hold you upside down and shake you for a donation for the Martha O'Bryan center, and Yazoo pints will be specially priced, with the proceeds being donated to the Martha O'Bryan center too. As always at Yazoo, kids are welcome.
The author of "Soup & Bread" will also be on hand promoting and signing copies of her book. Soup & Bread is a program that has raised thousands of dollars, one bowl of soup at a time, for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Author Martha Bayne and illustrator Sheila Sachs, the longtime art director of Chicago Reader will be there to sell you a copy and inspire you with their amazing story.
So all in all a good time will be had. I have word that one of our favorite Nashville musicians, Paul Burch, might stop by and play a few tunes as well.
