Cheesecake Also Ends with a Vowel

 
The Summer "season" is officially upon Chicago with the city's largest annual festival, the Taste of Chicago, now underway. The hit Chicago company of Jersey Boys is proud to celebrate their first Windy City summer by helping kick-off the 28th Taste of Chicago on Saturday, June 28.

Chicago cast members John Michael Dias, John Hickman, John Michael Coppola, Tonya Wathen, and Jake Speck were on hand at Grant Park to ceremonially cut the first piece of the larger-than-life Eli's Cheesecake and commemorate the start of this year's Taste of Chicago.
