We may have mild temperatures right now but February should bring colder weather and thoughts of your favorite soups. Plans are underway for our 2012 Soup Sundays, and both lineups are looking quite appetizing. The Little Rock event will be held at the Embassy Suites on Financial Center Parkway on February 19th from 4:00pm – 7:00pm. The Northwest Arkansas event will be held at the Northwest Arkansas Convention Center in Springdale on February 26th from 4:00pm – 7:00pm.
Tickets for both events are now available online or by calling 501-371-9678 for the Little Rock Soup Sunday or 479-927-9800for the NWA Soup Sunday.
Little Rock tickets are $50 for the VIP Signature Soup Room featuring Chef Peter Brave of Brave New as well as access to the main event. Regular adult tickets are $20 and children’s tickets for $5 for ages 5-12. The main event will feature soups, bread and desserts from more than 30 central Arkansas restaurants such as Cotham’s in the City, Sushi Café, Chi’s Dim Sum and Bistro, Acadia, Dave’s Place, and Capitol Bistro. We are excited to welcome the Flying Balloon-O Brothers as our entertainment as well as our silent auction with items such as pottery, a 1 hour landscape consultation with Chris Olsen, a casserole a month from Mary Twedt, jewelry, tickets on Southwest Airlines and more!
Northwest Arkansas tickets are available in advance at $20 for adults and $5 for children ages 5-12. Adult tickets will increase to $25 at the door. In addition to the soups, breads and desserts, entertainment will once again be provided by The McFetridge Jazz Quartet.
A big thank you to Arkansas Children’s Hospital who is the presenting sponsor for both events! We look forward to seeing you at Soup Sunday. Don’t forget to bring your muffin tins!
