February 23rd is Soup Sunday

It’s safe to say that every person in Nashville is a little tired of the cold weather we’ve been battling—okay, so “a little tired” may be a little of an understatement—but warmth is on the horizon. While we folks at the butcher shop aren’t fans of the arctic chill either, the one thing we most certainly are fans of is the food that goes so well with chilly weather: we’re talking stews, roasts, and most importantly SOUPS.

David Sellers and Chris Carter at the 2013 Soup SundayNext Sunday, February 23rd is the 21st Annual Our Kids Soup Sunday and we Porter Road butchers are pretty psyched to be a part of it, spending the afternoon showing off our skills and supporting a great cause in the fancy (and warm) Club Level of LP Field.

Fifty of Nashville’s most talented chefs will be competing to take home the title of Best Soup, and our very own Chris and James are in it to win it. The two of them competed in the soup-off last year, coming out empty handed and heavy-hearted, but this year they’re coming back with a vengeance—ready to knock out the competition and stake their claim as Soup Kings.

The annual Our Kids Soup Sunday is an event that celebrates something we love (hot soup) and benefits something we love too (healthy kids). Our Kids’ mission is to help children who have dealt with or are currently dealing with sexual abuse, and Soup Sunday is an event that specifically raises money for the clinical staff, ensuring they are ready to respond to families and children who are struggling with sexual abuse twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

At $20 for a single adult or $40 for an entire family, the event is a steal you won’t want to miss—and one that will have you feeling all warm inside. We’re talking celebrity sightings (two Nashville stars, one Rascal Flatt, a football coach, and then some), entertainment for the kids, intense culinary competition, the opportunity to taste FIFTY different soups, and the chance to cast your vote to make PRB the winners!

Regardless of what the forecast predicts, Sunday the 23rd is going to be warm and delicious at LP Field. The fun starts at 11 AM and lasts until about two in the afternoon, allowing you ample time to sample it all. We’ll see you on Sunday.
