My latest entry on Choose Chicago’s new blog, Chicago Like a Local, is a miniature cupcake crawl for the folks in the Loop. Part of me thinks I should have a four corners of Chicago cupcake crawl so people at least have a fighting chance of working up an appetite for all that sugar, but it’s hard when so yummy goodness is concentrated in one area. Enjoy!
So here they are… the long-awaited results of the Cupcake Crawl! Did we discover Chicago’s best cupcake? We definitely found some new favorites! Listen to hear our take.
