A monthly soup dinner providing St Louis with artists' grants
Sunday, September 25, 2011
Sloup number twenty is going to happen at the Contemporary this afternoon. This very two o'clock. It is so so sunny on their patio, and the little silver chairs and tables are positioned for maximum sun on your sweet soft face. John Perkins just whipped the richest butter into the last tomato soup of summer. He'll drive it over here in a few minutes. I bet his windows will be rolled down. There are three artist's proposals in a cozy packet for you to read and love, and they are all so well written. They are all such charmers. We are all so charmed. So charmed we're a little sleepy. Come on over. It's nice out.
TONITE WE EXPERIMENT! GO OUT (OR STAY IN) AND SLOUP!
AND TO AVOID TALLYING COMPLICATIONS, ALL VOTERS NEED SIMPLY VOTE FOR THEIR #1 FAVORITE.
TOMORROW, BELOVED HOSTS AND SLOUPERS, WE WILL SEE YOU AT LOCAL HARVEST CAFE FOR THE TALLYING. VOTES & DONATIONS ARE DUE BY NOON, SO EMAIL US IF YOUR MORNING GETS TANGLED.
QUESTIONS?? WE'LL BE iPHONE ALL NIGHT: email@example.com
Sloup is a monthly soup dinner in St. Louis that supports projects, primarily artistic or communicative, that need a little funding and belief. Soup dinners will be on one Sunday a month from 6-8 p.m. Soups will be provided by local establishments, chefs and community members, as well as grant recipients returning to share their projects. We’re asking for a $10 per person donation at each dinner (100% of which will go directly into that month’s Sloup Fund), entitling you to vote on that month’s proposal which excites you the most! Grant proposals will be accepted until the Saturday before the soup (see application below).
