‘Soup Crawl’ in Port Orchard set for Friday and Saturday

Six restaurants along Bay Street participating in foodie event

PORT ORCHARD — Have you ever gotten on your hands and knees, and crawled for a great cup of soup?

Maybe not, but there will be some signature soups and select beverage pairings hosted by downtown Port Orchard eateries on Friday and Saturday that might compel you to head out with knees down on the pavement for some great food.

The Port Orchard Bay Street Association (POBSA) is planning its second Downtown Port Orchard Soup Crawl at a variety of places in town over both days. Times may vary at each of the soup locations, Coreen Haydock, POBSA president, said.

“There are so many amazing eateries, and we are honored to partner with local establishments in presenting this event,” Haydock said. “Whether you are a resident or visiting Port Orchard for the first time, taking a walking tour while enjoying local cuisine is a great way to experience this fantastic downtown.”

The Soup Crawl will give participants a chance to come in from the cold and warm up with a specialty soup in a variety of styles and recipes from six local establishments, she added.

The participating restaurants include Bay Street Bistro; Brick House 714; Carter & Co. Bakery & Cafe; Farmer Rosie; Peninsula BevCo; Sue’s Fresh Juice Bar & Sandwich Shop; and The Dock Bar & Eatery.

Haydock said the inspiration for the Soup Crawl came from a desire among business owners to draw people downtown in the winter months.
