Mourning the loss of Soupskol

I want my street food back. It’s bad enough I can’t get a crepe at the Popcorn Wagon after a movie, or a taco from the pop-up next to where Bell Mountain Sports used to be … or that a hot-dog cart is considered a threat to the Hyman Mall businesses (mustard on the fur coat ohhhhhnoooooooooooooo!). But Soupskol? Soupskol? Was Little Annie’s the only glue that held Soupskol together? Really?

Soupskol has been an easy way to evaluate both the kitchen and the staff so I can give an honest opinion to any Aspen visitor. Not to mention, you never know who you will meet in line — billionaires to lifties. Everyone loves free soup.
