The third stop was a Death March Tradition: Beard Papa Cream Puffs. More or less by coincidence, both Manhattan and San Francisco’s routes had us stopping for cream puffs, and since Chicago has a location as well, it was obligatory that we stop. For those that haven’t indulged, Beard Papa makes some seriously good cream puffs, even if the mascot is a bit creepy:
(as an aside, Beard Papa is located in the basement of the mostly-empty Block 37 shopping mall. This is worth noting, since Block 37 has probably the finest publicly-available free restrooms for downtown)
After getting cream-puffed, we headed north on State
until we got to Chicago Ave, where we headed left.
