Indugle Your Sweet Tooth at the Anderson Dessert Crawl

While some 45,000 runners attempt the Chicago Marathon tomorrow, you can partake in a whole different kind of marathon—one that luckily doesn't include Spandex pants or, for that matter, running. The Fourth Annual Andersonville Dessert Crawl provides the opportunity to sample sweets at eateries throughout the neighborhood. Chose from two different routes, or if you have a gigantic sweet tooth, do both (list of participating businesses after the jump). The crawl begins at the Swedish American Museum (5211 N. Clark St., 773-728-8111) starting at 1 p.m., where you'll also pick up your dessert passport for your designated route. While enjoying the sugar rush, make sure to get your passport stamped by each business on the route, and you'll get a chance to win tickets to the 2010 Andersonville Wine Walk. Advance prices are $25 dollars for one route ($30 day of) and $40 for both routes ($50 day of); advance tickets are available here.
