Every patron gets to taste all the delicious creations, enjoy a complimentary Ketel One Vodka cocktail by the master mixologists of Huckleberry, and then vote for their favorite concoction. Aside from vying for the title of coolest soup in the city, the chefs face off for the fabulous prizes awarded to first, second, and third place.
