A photojournal of the Wooster Square neighborhood in New Haven, Connecticut. And, occasionally a photo of New Haven, of course, of course.

Picture if you can, people wondering through your neighborhood with empty bowls, a spoon, and something to drink. Picture if you can people knocking at your door with empty bowls in need of some soup, some friendship, and a little warmth on a Sunday evening. Welcome to Soup in Wooster Square! Where else can you find yourself on a Sunday night, knocking on a neighbor's door and know that you'll be treated to a warm and hearty bowl of soup? There is a long standing tradition throughout the winter months in Wooster Square where families make a big pot of soup and neighbors come, bowl in hand for some great soups. In by six and out by eight, it's a wonderful way to wind down the weekend...or begin a new and to connect during the frigid winter months.
Sometimes libations are involved but mostly just soup.
Kevin and Kim like their soups. Tonight there was spicy cauliflower soup and applesauce curry soup. So yummy! Next week Kevin and Kim are the hosts....looking forward to it.
A couple of satisfied neighbors.
