Each guest will be given color-coded tabs to vote for their favorite soups. If they love your soup they will drop their category-colored tab at your station. A runner will be collecting the tabs and tallying scores. For every five votes, a restaurant receives a football representing their restaurant and will move one space down the field. Winners will be announced once tabs have all been collected and tallied. We’re expecting a high-energy atmosphere with an MC talking about each restaurant; tasting their soup, talking about the soup, and the progress it is making.

The Soup’r Bowl event is to raise funds for a local charity while enabling local eateries to compete for the title of best soup.
