Dinner Club: Soup for Supper @ 18 Reasons

soupforsupper

With the munchkins in school, we don’t get the opportunity to go on as many food adventures during the day.  Some time ago, we came up with idea of a periodic dinner adventure with the kids – trying new cuisines and restaurants around San Francisco.  Going for an early dinner is a great idea, because it mixes up the routine and saves parents the drudgery of everyday dinner cooking and clean-up at home.  If you can pull it off, it is best to bathe the kids before dinner, so bedtime is pretty much as soon as you get home. 🙂

Last night, we checked out Soup for Supper at 18 Reasons for a totally family-friendly and fun evening.  18 Reasons hosts “Soup for Supper” once a month and you can drop by anytime between 6-8PM for a bowl of vegetarian goodness and slice of crusty bread (and a beer/wine  for the parents if you like!).  It’s fast – you order at the counter, hearty and delicious (we had a lovely minestrone which the munchkins inhaled), inexpensive ($5/bowl) and the space is open and welcoming for the kids (with room to “run around” and explore).  The kids were talking about going back next month, which is always a good sign!

And of course, Bi-Rite Creamery is right next door, and as a treat (for eating the vegetable laden soup), the kids shared (with some help from me), an enormous brownie sundae!  Hooray for dinner club!
