Random Cookies: The joy of big city living

DoubleTree Cookie Give-away

DoubleTree Signature Cookie

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.
