Soup & Bread multiplies

Soup & Bread founder Martha Bayne offers some sage soup-making advice in today's cover story. She didn't offer up her own good news: The weekly soup dinner is going back on the road, and has spawned a New York offshoot.

Bayne will host a satellite Soup & Bread dinner Jan. 30 at the punk club the Funhouse in Seattle, where Bayne grew up.

Last February, Bayne went on the road for a one-night-only event at the Bell House in Brooklyn. It went over so well, a monthly Soup & Bread NYC at a venue called the Littlefield also is in the works, according to Bayne and Littlefield co-owner Julie Kim.

Helping organize the Brooklyn program is Jack McFadden, a former Chicagoan and partner at the Bell House who now books Littlefield. Still awaiting more details from McFadden, who just this week became a dad. "As an ex-Chicagoan, I was jealous of the very cool Soup & Bread nights they were throwing at the Hideout," McFadden said via e-mail. "When I had the opportunity to host out here, I jumped at it."
