Soup Club Season 2, Episode 2: Black Bean Soup

Our art director Anne is a good cook. In fact, her cooking is the entire reason I created Soup Club: To get her to make me lunch. Somehow, like Tom Sawyer before me, my laziness snowballed to great effect, and I ended up getting the whole office to make me lunch! 

Anne brought a ton of bread that she toasted in our oven (and made sure to let us know it was most definitely not for breakfast), and she posed in front of her Black Bean Soup spread (with Dave, who seemed super excited about her soup--he's no fool). Finally, I got some, piled it high with toppings, and it was the actual best Black Bean Soup I ever had. 

Needless to say: I won't be making black bean soup when it's my turn in January. 



Soup Club Season 2

Back by popular demand! We rebooted Soup Club because we're all desperate to have someone else plan lunch. 

A bunch of Zoombas gathered around the conference room table, our new Loch Ness Monster soup ladle and the start of the show: Homemade Chili made by our own Director of Operations Tracy Mugan!

2016 Holiday Dinner

Once a year, we bring our full-time staff together with many of our vendors and freelance writers for a half-day meeting a delicious dinner to celebrate the year. 

We hosted a full house on Dec. 5 at our offices. 

We had a lovely private dinner at Cafe Amano. 

Senior Contributing Editor Dana Tanyeri, Marketing Manager Kevin Pock and his wife Katie, freelance production artist Judy Hall, and Art Director Anne Locascio during the cocktail hour. 

Settling in for dinner: Production Artist Eric Uhl, Contributing Editor Amelia Levin, Sales Associate Nicholas Slocum (with freelance contributor Tom O'Brien sitting farther down) and, in the background, you can catch a glimpse of our Publisher Maureen Slocum and Senior Sales Director Carol McAdam.
