I recently had the chance to cover the 2011 Hamburger Hop - a burger showdown hosted by Bon Appetit in Chicago - for St. Louis Magazine. True, there were 17 burgers to try that night, but I also made time for lunch at Blackbird, a really early dinner at Avec and several coffees from Intelligentsia.
Anyway, enough about my gluttonous day in Chicago, check out my take on the event and pictures from this massive burger event that took place on the roof of the Harris Theater in Millennium Park.
