For the longest time I’ve wanted to take a trip to the famed Taste of Chicago — a massive, two-week, outdoor eating fest that takes place annually in the windy city’s Grant Park Grant Park: Taste of Chicago. Yesterday, at least 120 people, and reports of up to 400, were sickened by one booth’s herb, tomato, and cucumber hummus salad! I guess my friends who hate healthy food were right after all 😉

In no way would this stop me from going. Even though at least 10 people have been hospitalized, this is the first food-borne illness in over 20 years at the Taste of Chicago event.
