One of the unexpected pleasures of National Soup Swap Day is all the interesting emails and all the new folks we’ve met online and the occasional new people we meet that show up to our Soup Swap in Seattle.
At 3046 miles from Seattle, Roslindale, Massachusetts is quite a long ways from our rainy Northwest city, so it was with even more than usual delight that I was able to show one-half of the Providence/Roslindale swap team a bit of our city’s highlights. Mark and his coworker were here on business and had the good sense to drop me a note, perhaps sensing, there’s hardly a thing I like better than showing off our city to our out-of-town Soup Swappers.
Good times and conversation had by all, with stops at Matt’s at the Market, Kerry Park for the views, a peak at Fiereabend, dinner at Quinn’s and CaffeÂ´ Vita for whirlwind night in Seattle. Here at Seattle Soup Swap HQ, we give good city tours filled with insightful commentary to useless facts, vague answers to serious questions, and cocktails.
The Roslindale 2009 Soup Swap data has not been set yet, but look for it sometime at the end of February.
