This Restaurant Will Pay You To Eat Their Soup.
Nothing hits the spot on a cold day better than a piping hot bowl of rich, hearty soup (see, even the description made you hungry, right?). A Chicago restaurant has a deal on their soup that has folks hoping for the coldest temps possible.
Mather's three Chicago locations offer a bowl of soup at a cost - in cents - equal to the outside temperature during January and February. If it's 32 degrees, you pay 32 cents. But, what happens if the temps drop below zero? They'll pay you.
The restaurant's assistant manager Beth Zoeller says that when the weather has dropped to negative temperatures, they've given back a few pennies to customers. "We're true to our word," she said, adding that some people refused to be paid for the soup, while others took the change.
Zoeller says the soup promotion has been a delicious way to get through some brutally cold winters over the last few years, even if the restaurant takes a small financial hit.
I love soup as much as the next person, but I'm not sure getting paid to eat soup is worth enduring the bitterly cold temps that go along with it.
