Trick Or Treating For Adults At The Andersonville Dessert Crawl

aville_dessertcrawl2016_small_banner_v1-1Described by the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce as “trick or treating for adults”, the Andersonville Dessert Crawl will once again take place this year giving returning participants and those new to the event the opportunity to sample treats from local businesses.

The crawl takes place from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, October 30. Cost of tickets is $25, and patrons can choose from one of two routes. Cost of the tickets goes up to $30 beginning Friday October 28. Patrons can pick up their “passports” at Great Lakes Clinical Trials, 5149 N. Ashland.

“In total we have 11 outstanding stops on each of two routes, with favorites and special treats from Andersonville’s finest, including Koval Distillery sampling top-shelf spirits and liqueurs made right here on Ravenswood on both routes,” said Sarah Dandelles, Events and Fundraising Director for the Andersonville Chamber of commerce. “Again named the Candy Corn Route and the Caramel Apple Route, each grouping of 11 stops takes you on a great fall stroll in the neighborhood.”

According to Dandelles there will be four new restaurant stops on the Dessert Crawl this year including Middle East Bakery’s new corner Cafe serving baklava, Defloured Bakery serving gluten free cookies or brownies, TrueNorth Cafe serving its delicious espresso bomb, and Goddess and Grocer will be on one of the routes, serving cake pops. Retail shop Murray and White, which partners annually with Misericordia Creative Arts program for Arts Weekend, will be the spot in Andersonville to taste sweet goods from the Hearts and Flour Bakery Shop of Misericordia. 

“We’re so lucky in Andersonville to have a wonderful business district filled with locally owned hospitality businesses that make it such a dining and shopping destination, but like all business districts, there is constant change, which makes it fun for our crawl events,” said Dandelles.

Enjoyment of tasty, mouthwatering treats and visits to old and new restaurants during this special event has other benefits, says the press release of the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce: “The event supports the non-profit Andersonville Chamber of Commerce, which fosters sustainable community development in the Andersonville commercial district, with $1 from each ticket also benefitting Care for Real, Edgewater’s food pantry.”
