“Martha Bayne did not realize until now just how much people love soup.” So reads the Reader contributor’s Facebook page now that the free soup-and-bread event she’s starting tonight at the Hideout from 5 to 8 PM has caught fire on seemingly every blog in town. I second the advice of the Stew’s Phil Vettel, who warns folks to get there early.

Look for Martha’s Food & Drink column on Handlebar owner Josh Deth’s new project, Revolution Brewing Company, in this week’s Reader.
