Great Lakes Clinical Trials to Sponsor the 10th Annual Andersonville Dessert Crawl

  • Great Lakes Clinical Trials 5149 North Ashland Avenue Chicago, IL, 60640 United States (map)

It’s trick-or-treating with a gourmet flair! More than twenty restaurants in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood showcase their sweetest and most delicious wares during the 10th annual Andersonville Dessert Crawl on Sunday, October 30, 2016, from 2:00-5:00PM.

Participants will pick up their Dessert Crawl “passport” at the Great Lakes Clinical Trials – Andersonville 5149 N. Ashland Ave, and then proceed to the participating restaurants and shops for tasting-sized portions at each location.

Tickets are on sale NOW! For the second year in a row, one dollar from each ticket sold will benefit Care for Real, Edgewater’s Community Food Pantry.

Recognizing Andersonville’s commitment to sustainability, each restaurant will be given compostable servingware, and we will have compost stations outside of each location, so the Dessert Crawl will be another Andersonville zero waste event!
