The final bowl of Soup at the home of Cheryl and Michael Kinsman was served Sept. 14. Soup was a get together of whoever showed up on the first Friday of the month, starting Jan. 2, 1999, and later moved to the second Friday. Someone made soup, others brought beverages, salads, desserts and everyone dished. "We only had two rules: you had to be friendly and you had to talk to everyone," said Cheryl, a former mayor. "Over the years, attendance had dwindled, so it was really nice that so many people showed up for the last one. " Michael, the current Chamber of Commerce president, said Soup was started to get folks together who enjoyed good food and good people.

It?s 90 degrees in the blazing Thai sun at 3 p.m. on a Wednesday in Phuket as Elle and her son Alex weave their way through the dense traffic, dodging speeding motorbikes and cars to get across the streets to the unnamed ?fresh market.? A cacophony of sounds and color assault the senses as they reach the sea of green umbrellas shading the piled high stacks of red dragon fruit, yellow jackfruit, orange papayas and green mangos. As they move down the aisles, past the soymilk seller, the squid griller and the Muslim chicken barbecue, on past the Portuguese sweets, the crispy little marshmallow crepes, deep-fried pastries filled with hot dogs and a myriad of other vendors selling exotic vegetables, a hundred different kinds of fish and seafood from the Andaman Sea and every conceivable part of a pig.

People are constantly approaching Elle at the gym to discuss the great short ribs, the spicy crab cakes or the lousy service they had last weekend at this or that restaurant. Her foodie friend Fritz has been nagging her for months to try Brussels Bistro on Forest Avenue's "restaurant row." Down a few steps from the sidewalk, located in the old Kachina space, Brussels Bistro also has a small outdoor patio that's great for summer nights, and they have added a five-seat eating bar on the street.

In La Ca"ada Flintridge, the family-run Thai restaurant Min's Kitchen has graced Foothill Boulevard for decades. A recent facelift provided newly sponge-painted walls and a lighter appearance to the small dining room. The honey-colored wood tables and chairs add an elegant touch to the décor. Nearly everyone who comes in the door seems to be greeted as an old friend, so it is apparent that Min's has a loyal local following. Servers are hospitable and they're patient with menu questions, but things can get a bit slow, as there are frequently two servers for the entire restaurant, and one or both are fielding a brisk take-out business as well as tending tables.

The popular Wine Gallery in Corona Del Mar has opened a beautiful second location in Laguna Beach. The large room is centered around a spacious, U-shaped, marble-topped bar that faces the white-tiled, open kitchen featuring a wood-burning oven. The atmosphere is both sophisticated and cozy.

Facing the street are floor-to-ceiling windows, with pulled-back curtains made of wine corks.

Holiday lights are sprouting like jewels in our retailers, on the city streets and in our neighborhoods. My mailboxes — both snail and e-mail — are filled with coupons and sales promotions, and the season of giving marches forward with increasing speed. As in years past, my personal proclivity is not about “shop ‘til you drop” — although I recognize that means I’m not doing my part to jump-start an aching economy. It’s not that I’m against giving, I simply am aware that my personal (and oft times scarce)
