Zack Denfeld is serving coffee and soup daily in front of the WORK gallery on State Street as an exercise in conversation and part of an exhibit inside. Coffee is served at 7am 9:00 – 9:10am and soup at noon, with additional evening events.

Tonight at 6pm, City Councilmember Jean Carlberg will be stopping by for dinner, which Zack currently plans as spring rolls and peanut-yam soup (all vegetarian): “Come eat and share ideas about the future of Ann Arbor, and go with us on a walking tour of AA graf.”

Zack will be at WORK for the next two weeks, with the soup, passer-by, and events blogged at AASwarMArt.



  1. Actually, the coffee is served everyday from 9 to 9:10 am.

    I don’t think Zack has ever been up at 7, let alone prepared and ready to greet people with free coffee.

  3. I think gazpacho is the classic…

    I imagine a cold soup based around cucumber could be good?

  4. Murph: I understand there are a lot of good combinations revolving around cucumber and/or avocado. Of course, gazpacho itself also includes chopped cucumber…
