📍 Mischief on Canal and more Fremont restaurants
We are deep into cuffing season, but if you haven’t booed up and need some wintertime warmth, I got you. Grab a big cup (or bowl) at the Fremont neighborhood’s annual SOUPOCOLYPSE event. What’s a SOUPOCOLYPSE? Well, it’s when the grey of winter feels like the end of the world, and for dinner, you sop up as much liquid as possible as a survival mechanism.
In 2021, the head chef of Mischief on Canal, John Wahlke, created SOUPOCOLYPSE as a way to keep people dining during the pandemic. It was a time when lots of creative ideas got the green light—street patios! meal kits! cocktails to go!—and many of those ideas have thankfully stuck with us. How does this one work? For four days in January, restaurants at the Center of the Universe will offer an array of soups. Grab a soup passport at any participating restaurant (dine-in or to-go) and collect eight stamps (two a day)! What do you win? Well, besides a belly full of broth, after your passport is as full as you are, redeem at Mischief on Canal for a complimentary tasting and goodie bag of local treats. (Basically, you get free booze for eating. Heck yeah!)
Participating restaurants this year include Kaosamai Thai Restaurant, seafood joint Local Tide, Red Star Taco Bar, and local sandwich slinger Paseo. So far, organizers confirmed that 12 spots are participating. Previously, all sorts of soups, from gumbo, chili, curry, and posole, have been served. Follow the Facebook event for fresh info, including new locations as they are added.
