zoup it up!

tomorrow is dad’s

71st

birthday!!

(i’ll save the official happy bday wishes for one more day).

today was the perfect day to go out for a birthday lunch – i finished work earlier than normal for a sunday, and mom and dad’s schedule was open. tomorrow/monday is much more hectic!

i have been wanting to try zoup for ages!! and mom and dad are already fans. with today’s blustery weather and wintry temp, soup sounded like a very tasty option, indeed.

our uptown zoup

we met at 1 pm and had to wait for a table. from what i hear, this busy-ness is pretty typical. zoup has got a good thing going!

our booth at zoup!

[i asked a departing mom to take our photo, please. she did a great job - wayyy better than mr coffee culture customer, the other day!].

our order:

make that two lobster bisques and a shrimp + crawfish etouffee!

what a delicious lunch! soup is so warming, and the zoup soups get an A rating from all of us (hot, flavourful, filling). (zoup has a wide-ranging menu: soup; salads; sandwiches; or, you can combo up any of those options).

we finished off our outing with a present-opening ceremony:

surprise!

i’m still feeling toasty warm! from the soup or from our fun birthday visit??!

~*~*~*~*~

it’s grey cup sunday! i could care less about the football, but i DO want to catch the half-time show: JUSTIN BIEBER (!!), carly rae jepsen, GORDON LIGHTFOOT (!!) are among the performers. canada, what is going on, this entertainment line up sounds fitting for the super bowl!

    That looks wonderful! The closest thing is Panera, which is fine but I miss the real soup place I used to go to in CA (SF Soup Company)

    Wow, Gordon Lightfoot! I love him and haven’t seen him for years. So glad to hear he’s still performing! Happy Birthday, Dad! Looks like a fun day, Cathy!

      fran, it’s so neat – gord still is touring and i think this weekend he was doing his annual performances at massey hall, in toronto! he has some great songs, eh? timeless!

    Happy almost birthday to your dad!
    I love soup! Mostly I go witha veggie soup, but chicken noodle is always a classic,
    I have heard Gordon Lightfoot on the seventies station and enjoy remembering my childhood. My parents used to play his records!

      canada is so proud of gord, zo! he has some great songs – i’ve been lucky enough to go to a couple of his concerts – he’s awesome! that is so fun that your family had his records. i agree that chicken noodle is pretty hard to beat!

    Oh….and please send your dad the happiest of birthday wishes!!

      heather, i think it would be fun to just go down the line and try all the soups! that is so nice of your rep to treat you all! dad will appreciate the bday wishes – i am sure he pictures you in his mind’s eye as you looked at age 16!!
