A day before the New England Patriots take on the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, local chefs will compete in the fourth annual Soup’r Bowl.
Representing a number of Anchorage restaurants, chefs will vie for the title of best soup in four categories – meat, seafood, vegetarian and cream – with a trophy awarded to the best overall soup. Attendees will vote for their favorites, with each vote moving that restaurant’s football down a field. The restaurant with the most touchdowns wins.
Some of the dining establishments represented will be The Bradley House, Kincaid Grill, Hott Stixx, Tap Root, Bear’s Tooth, Ginger, Humpy’s, Lucky Wishbone, ORSO, Sal’s NY Grill, Gallo’s Mexican Restaurant, Club Paris, Rum Runners, 36 Bistro, Marx Brothers, Snow Goose and Pizza Man.
Hosted by the Anchorage Cabaret, Hotel, Restaurant and Retailers Association, the event takes place noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Howard Johnson Hotel. Entry is $15 for adults, $10 for children 10 and younger. Proceeds benefit the Anchorage Hospitality Foundation.
