This year, La Brea Bakery will celebrate 25 years of business by – what else? – inviting patrons to break bread with them. On Thursday, May 29th, the bakery – originally founded by recent James Beard Outstanding Chef Award winner Nancy Silverton – will kick off a “bread tour” in Chicago, where it will be giving away free, fresh-baked samples at local spots.  You can expect to see them feeding the Windy City May 29th through June 1st, and June 4th to June 7th, before they continue on their tour through four more cities. Participants have the chance to win prizes from La Brea by uploading photos from the sampling spots on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #BreakingBread.


Some of the sampling locations include: Near North Side (Mariano Park) on May 29th at 8:30 am, Logan Square (Damen-O’Hare Station) on May 30th at 8:30 am, The Loop (W. Wacker Dr & N. State St) on June 4th at 8:30 am and Wrigleyville (N. Clark St & W. Eddy St) on June 6th at 8:30 am. For updates, you can follow La Brea Bakery on Twitter or Instagram, @labreabakery.
