The weather's getting cooler, which means you know what time of year it is. No, not fall – it's soup season. And one of Downtown's best locales for a ladleful, The Soup House, 324 E. Michigan St., is reopening just in time to fight off the shivers by the spoonful. 

Thanks in part to a $1,000 micro-grant from the Milwaukee Independent Restaurant Coalition, the Downtown hotspot will reopen starting on Sept. 29, serving exclusively carry-out orders from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Tuesdays through Thursdays at 324 E. Michigan St. [Read more on MIRC grants here]

The restaurants has been closed since early July, after briefly reopening in June to test the waters.

The Soup House's opening week menu will feature chicken soup, creamy tomato, buffalo chicken and green curry with chickpeas on Tuesday; chicken pot pie, squash and peanut, Jamaican chicken stew, and dill pickle and potato on Wednesday; and tikka masala, clam chowder, meaty chili and Moroccan lentil soup on Thursday. For future menus, visit The Soup House's website

To place your order, call (414) 277-7687 – and be sure to wear a mask when you arrive to snag your soup. Stay safe and stay warm out there, Milwaukee!

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
