CHESTERTOWN — The Chestertown Rotary Club is again hosting its Soup and Sip event in the courtyard behind The Kitchen at The Imperial.

According to a news release, this fundraising event is set for noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23. The Kitchen is located at 208 High St., Chestertown.

Now being held for the fourth year, the Soup and Sip features local eateries and wineries offering samplings of their signature crab soup recipes for cream of crab or vegetable crab soups in addition to a variety of wines from local wineries.

Guests will have an opportunity to enjoy the many offerings and vote for their favorites while supporting Kent County Public Schools’ One School One Book program at Galena Elementary School.

The cost is $25 for 10 tasting tickets and one raffle ticket for the club’s special gift basket. More tickets may be purchased at the door.

“This event provides an opportunity to share a special afternoon with friends in an outdoor atmosphere at the Carriage House, behind the Kitchen at The Imperial, in Chestertown. It is an excellent way to get acquainted with some of the best local food establishments and local vineyards. At the same time, our guests are helping us to support Kent County public school students as they continue to develop literary skills,” said Chestertown Rotary Club President Lisa Webb.

Returning restaurants are the Kitchen at the Imperial, Chester River Yacht and Country Club, Luisa’s Cucina Italiana, Germaine’s Uptown, Osprey Point and the Fish Whistle.

New this year are 98 Cannon Riverfront Grille, Molly’s Restaurant and the Watershed.

Wines by the glass and bottle will be provided by Crow Farms and Broken Spoke wineries.

“The Chestertown Rotary club is a huge supporter of education and educational causes, and we are happy once again to be presenting this popular event to raise funds for our schools,” Webb said.
