Big-ass food

I’m in Chicago right now, speaking (on a panel) at an online advertising conference tomorrow morning.

But tonight is all about big-ass cake.

I’m going to Hugo’s, which is the sister restaurant to Gibson’s, the famous Chicago steakhouse with the big-ass cakes. The picture below was taken at Gibson’s on my previous trip to Chicago, a few years ago on my book tour. I have been assured that Hugo’s has the same cakes.

    Holy shit! That cake is bordering on the obscene. I thought the cheesecake factory had the largest cakes id seen. This place takes the cake.

    That looks disgusting. You are already obese. Have some self respect.
