Hello friends! We’ve missed you. It’s been so long. Did you miss us? Well, then, you’re in luck — because we’re back in action, one month early.

Please join us at the Hideout on Saturday, December 13for Chili & Cornbread: A Meal and Raffle to Benefit Soup & Bread.

From 5:30 to 9 pm we’ll be dishing up bowls of chili from cooks including Smoque BBQGraze Magazine, Celestial Kitchens, No-Longer-Hot Doug Sohn, the Trust for Public Land’s Rich Kinczyk, and Harmony Grill, as well as bread from Publican Quality Meats and panfuls of cornbread from All On the Road Catering. We’ll have music to eat by from DJ Stan Wood. We’ll have cookbooks and other Soup & Bread related paraphernalia for sale. And we’ll be raffling off a mess of prizes donated by Bloodshot RecordsAgate Publishing, Dmitry Samarov, Neko Case, Lula Cafe, the Hideout, Poise bags, and other fine outfits — including some Very Special Items salvaged from one long-forgotten hot dog stand on the northwest side.

Your $20 suggested donation goes directly to support the fundraising efforts of Soup & Bread in the coming months — because, well, those bowls don’t grow on trees (and these emails don’t write themselves). If you want to make a night of it with us, pay $25 at the door and stay for the Hideout Holiday Jamboree immediately following. Featuring holiday songs from the Emmet Otter Singers and Tiny Cover Band, and seasonal shorts from The Nightingale microcinema, it’s basically just a whole Saturday of nonstop joy.

It all happens December 13, at the Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia, from 5:30-9 pm. Kids are welcome. We really hope you can come. And if you’d like to donate a pan of cornbread or a raffle prize to the cause, please get in touch at

Thanks, happy holidays, and see you soon!

Soup & Bread

PS: We’re going back to basics for the seventh season of Soup & Bread, which kicks off Wednesday, January 7, at the Hideout. No fancy themes this year — just pots and pots of delicious soup for your eating, and possibly from your kitchen. If you’d like to sign up to cook, drop us a line at the above address. We’ll have more info on our schedule in the weeks to come.

PPS: Got an hour to kill? Martha sat down with the fine hosts of the Your Chicago podcast last month to talk about soup, bread, Rahm, Humboldt Park, and the art of the side hustle. It’s here.
