SOUPer Bowl Champions Abound!

The New England Patriots became Super Bowl XLIX champions last night with the help from a few Mississippians, including some of our own MSU Bulldogs! But, the Patriots aren’t the only champions in our midst. Last week’s SOUPer Bowl, held at StaggerIn Sports Grill was the scene of another face-off of the delicious variety.

A number of our local restaurants competed on Saturday, January 24 for the coveted Best of Show SOUPer Bowl trophy with their original soup recipes. Thank you to all our Starkville neighbors for attending and lending your votes for the tastiest concoctions. Jilly Beans Painted Pottery created our Best in Show serving piece trophy as well as the first, second and third place awards, which were presented to the winners by members of Starkville Young Professionals. Congratulations to the following winners, and we hope you’ll visit the restaurants for a taste of all their other great recipes!
