Free Soup For You; Chili Beer Dinner; New Doner Cafe

POINT LOMA— From 5 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, January 26 it's BYOB night at The Pearl Hotel. No, you can't bring booze, but if you bring your own bowl they will give you free soup and bread. The Pearl's Jaison Burke is teaming up with a chef pal, Green Acre's Joel Cammett, to cook up vegan root vegetable chowder, "baked potato" soup and a butternut squash soup. There will also be drink specials on beer, wine and well drinks, but please bring a canned food item to donate to a local charity. [EaterWire]
