Taste Of Chicago,The Hits Just Keep On Coming From The Windy City

July 9, 2010

When it comes to misinformed signage, bad news travels fast. A news producer in Chicago sent this booth sign to a New Orleans friend writing, “Sorry to say, I snapped this picture at the Taste of Chicago yesterday afternoon.” It was then forwarded to New Orleans food writer Lorin Gaudin who posted it on Twitter. 

“I was at the very first Taste of Chicago when Jane Byrne was Mayor. I am sick, just sick about that photo. Disgraceful,” she says of the “Our Lobster & Shrimp Are Not From the Gulf Coast” sign.

So Dear Chicago: We gave you Louis Armstrong. We gave you the playoffs of 2007. We gave you Gulf Coast seafood. Please investigate for yourself whether Gulf Coast seafood is safe and tested.
