How about chocolate shops? We got several fantastic local chocolatiers. And sandwich shops... some of the best. Let me know what you are interested in and I can direct you to some fantastic food!

Thanks Cake Believe!

SitStayEat: We are sandwich fiends! And we love chocolate! And burgers! Any suggestions?

Wow. I'll try to be brief.

Sandwiches: Bunk, Kenny and Zukes, Meat, Cheese, Bread. Bunk and MCB are both near the convention center, on the East side.

Chocolatiers: Xocolatl de David, Alma Chocolate, Sahagun. Those are my favorites. Cacao sells a fantastic, select variety of chocolate and has extraordinary drinking chocolate.

And if you lovelovelove aebleskiver (to die for, or rather, worth waiting in the cold), then go to Broder (w/ lemon curd and lingonberry jam).

Best burger... it is hard to pick one, but a bar by the name of Slow Bar has a fantastic artery clogger and is near the Convention Center too.

Let me know if you need any other suggestions or help. I might come down and see you!
