The Guac Stop: Chicago Style Guacamole

To Do, Travel

A Chicago style Guacamole recipe from Wholly Guacamole. 

Let’s get this out of the way right now: since I moved to Chicago, I have gained about 25 pounds. I know, I know. I’m all about the body image healthy eating love yourself and all that.

Bear with me here.

As much as I do love to feel healthy and to slide into the smaller pair of jeans, I also love eating.

Like, a lot.

It’s a happy accident that one of my very favorite foods happens to be quite wholesome and full of nutritious goodness.

Wholly Guacamole makes fresh prepared guacamole made that’s made with real, simple ingredients like hand scooped Hass avocados. 

This summer, the brand is launching the first ever guacamole themed lounge also known as The Guac Stop. The Guac Stop (in Chicago June 14 – 18 at Navy Pier) is literally making avocado and guacamole lovers’ dreams come true.

In the spirit of “living wholly”  the Guac Stop features a customizable guacamole bar, including all the fixings to create a limited-edition “Chicago dog”-style guacamole featuring pickles, tomatoes, onions, peppers and celery salt.

While guacamole is the main attraction at this free event, it’s certainly not the only thing on the menu. The Guac Stop will feature a series of ongoing “happenings” ranging from avocado facial treatments, avocado-themed wine & paint classes, fitness classes and more.

So, I obviously stopped there for lunch yesterday, and my first thought was to open up my phone,  create a meeting marker and see if my team was available for a Guac Stop field trip.

Next to a Friday afternoon Cubs game, The Guac Stop is the perfect place to celebrate summer, unwind and enjoy quality time with friends over some chips and guac.
