OCEAN ISLE BEACH –  A coastal museum is getting cozy this winter season with its second annual event that centers on warm bowls of soup. And attendees can choose their favorites.

On Feb. 3, the Ocean Isle Museum Foundation is hosting its second SOUPer Saturday at the Museum of Coastal Carolina. The event will be held after business hours, from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. Guests will be given the opportunity to taste an array of soup samples made by local home cooks and then vote on their favorites. The winner will be crowned by the foundation, which will issue a $100 gift certificate to a local restaurant.

Jim Hoffman, the museum’s executive director, informed Port City Daily the museum still needsfive or six more participants of its 10-to-12 volunteer chefs. So far, soup selections include a Lowcountry boil soup, chili and a taco soup. Participants will bring 2 gallons of soup and can apply by calling the museum at 910-579-1016. 

A $10 admission ticket is required for entry and can be purchased in advance here (a limited amount of tickets may be available at the door). The ticket includes soup samples and a small dessert; beer and wine also will be available for purchase. All proceeds benefit the museum.
