Filling Bowls and Bellies

butternut squashThe 10th annual Empty Bowl Project benefiting the Capital Area Food Bank is this Sunday, November 19th from 11am to 3pm at Clayways, 5442 Burnet Road.

We’ve attended the last two years and had a great time sampling the food, music and people. For those that are unfamiliar, local potters create and donate a bowl for the project, you come in on Sunday and pick one out for a $15 donation per bowl and you get to fill it up with your choice of soup from several Austin area restaurants like Wink, Zoot, Eastside Cafe and Hoover’s to name a few. There’s also a silent auction with local celebrity designed and signed bowls. It’s a great way to kick off the holiday season.

    Tim, although I can’t be there this year, we’ve gone four times in the past and had a wonderful time, with lovely food, fun music and beautiful bowls – in a very friendly relaxed place!

    It’s always fun to see those donated bowls – by respected local artists and with some signed by celebrities. We never won a bowl signed by Lance or Willie, but we were the high bidders several times – and a Bob Schneider bowl belongs to me!
