Join us in our quest to find Chicago’s best cupcake!

Plan to tour some of the city’s hottest cupcake spots, taste the goods, and rate them on Chicago Bites’ very own cupcake rating scale*. Your ratings will then be discussed on an upcoming podcast. We plan to record as we go along too, so you can share your thoughts directly with our listeners.

When you RSVP, you’ll get a map of our cupcake destinations** and a specific timetable for the day. You’ll also get details about our cupcake rating criteria, so that you’ll be ready to review.

Can’t join us for the whole day? No worries. You’ll be able to find where we are by subscribing to an alert service on your cell phone. Just pop in for a cupcake whenever. But be sure to RSVP in the comments or send us an e-mail to wrangle an evite.

Plan on spending anywhere between $2 and $5 per cupcake at each place. We recommend finding a cupcake buddy to share the cost and food. That way you won’t go into sugar shock!

See you at the Cupcake Crawl. It will be a great time! Until then, happy dining!

UPDATE: Do you have more questions about the Cupcake Crawl? Visit our FAQ!

*Our rating scale will be a subject of an upcoming post. We’d appreciate your suggestions for rating cupcakes!

**The list of places to visit is also a work in progress, so please provide us with your thoughts of where we must go and what we should leave out.

  7. I’ve heard Dinkel’s on Lincoln is the cupcake equivalent of nirvana.

  8. Boo. I think I’ll be out of town. This sounds so fantastic though, especially for those cupcake-obsessed like myself.
    The House of Fine Chocolates on Broadway also has a some cupcakes. I recently got their giant Red Velvet one, which was decent, although not spectacular.

    You may want to add SOuthport Grocery to your list, as well. IMHO, their’s rival the ones at Magnolia in NYC. Plus they just added Cupcake Pancakes to their menu: pancakes made from cupcake batter.

  26. Not RSVPing sadly, but I have to agree with Tim on Southport Grocery’s cupcakes. There are a sheer slice of heaven–the vanilla ones are the best cupcakes I’ve ever had in my life!

  27. Southport Grocery is definitely on the list!

  28. This event needs to be rescedule as we will be out of town. We insist! However, we do not wish to deprive other devotees- therefore, this event can be repeated weekly!!!!

  29. We may have to repeat the event! We’ve had so much interest in cupcakes!

  30. Dawn and I are ready to taste!!!

  31. RSVPing for 2. =)

  32. Hands down, the best cupcake in Chicago is at the Southport Grocery and Cafe. The crawl should start and end there!

  33. Try Angel Food Bakery (1636 W. Montrose) and the Southport Grocery.

  50. Please sign us up for 2!

  51. RSVP for 2 for the cupcake crawl
