If you’ve ever considered being a food critic, or you just love burgers, Can’t Stop the Hop is a must-go event for you! The event is an expanded version of Chicago Gourmet’s beloved Hamburger Hop. This fun, food tasting event is a great way to enjoy the city and fill up on delicious food. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Illinois Restaurant Association Educational Foundation’s Restaurant Employee Relief Fund.
Head over to the event from Sept. 1 to Sept. 13 and do your fair share of burger tasting. You’ll be encouraged to float from burger to burger and virtually vote for your favorite. Once a winning chef is deemed, he or she will be announced the week of Sept. 14.
Proceeds accrued at Can’t Stop the Hop will be donated to the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund. Vendors are encouraged to donate $1 of every burger sold. This event is a great way to give back to the community and help restaurant workers who have suffered financially from COVID-19. REFR is being launched in parallel with Chicago Gourmet this September.
The Can’t Stop the Hop experience will be expanding past its usual venue of Millennium Park this year. Hop over and enjoy a variety of delectable burgers that are sure to make your mouth water. This event is perfect for families, friends, and couples. Bite into a juicy burger and feel amazing knowing you donated to a great cause!
