If you happened to be walking along Michigan Avenue yesterday, then you couldn’t help but notice the large numbers of people with cookie stickers affixed to their t-shirts. That’s because the fine people from DoubleTree were handing them out along with their signature chocolate chip cookie.
Free sugar in the middle of the afternoon? Sign me up. I doubled back over the Michigan Avenue bridge to get one. And? Totally worth the walk — evenly baked, not too sweet, with the perfect amount of chocolate chunks.
I don’t know if they’ll be back again today, but random free food is one of the perks of living in a large, bustling city like Chicago. That stretch of Michigan Avenue seems to attract give-aways, so if you’re a tourist or if you live or work in the area, don’t forget to check it out from time to time.
