Carrot Cake Soup (cont'd)

I’m not sure how many of you follow Penny Arcade, but for those who do, I’m sure that you must have seen the Carrot Cake Soup post from June 11, 2003–originally posted on January 14, 2002. Well, what can I say, it was inspiring. Yesterday it was my friend Kumi’s birthday and we decided that a birthday dinner was in order. So we ventured out into the rain and downtown to celebrate this important event. Our original venue of choice was pretty full so we decided to seek out less crowded surroundings. This lead us to the Danube. Not the river, but the restaurant on Spring Garden Road in Halifax. And for a time, it was good.

I won’t bore you with the trivial details of what we ordered for supper because quite frankly it was pretty run of the mill. So the time came when our plates were being cleared away and we were asked the often rhetorical question: would you like some dessert with that? Usually not. But Kieran - Kumi’s brother and another good friend of mine - asked what they have. The list wasn’t overly long but included among its ranks: carrot cake. The lot of us, mostly computer science students, kind of perked up and looked at each other. When would we have another perfect opportunity like this? So Kieran and I decided that it needed to be done.

So we procured a bowl of milk and a slice of carrot cake and let the current carry us where it would. As usual, I had my camera handy so that photos could be taken to commemorate this occasion. The 5 photos below tell the story, but the 4 videos that we took really let you relive the moment.

In closing, I will say that while the soup didn’t quite taste like watching two women make out, it was quite good and I will recommend it to anyone who is adventurous enough to try. At one point we had the entire restaurant watching us - so trying it at home can only be safer.

Happy eating!

OK, I was able to find a place to stash the videos. For the time being, you can download them. [Videos are gone :( ]
