CHICAGO — Paczki Day is almost here. And with that comes Chicago's annual rush on the always delicious Polish treats.
As in previous years, dozens of spots throughout town are selling the pastry that signals that Lent is almost upon us.
Traditional flavors like strawberry and custard are available throughout the city, while some restaurants are putting their own twist on the treats. DMK Burger Bar is offering a burger with the doughnutlike pastry standing in for the bun. Delightful Pastries, which has three locations citywide, will have paczki infused with booze, including vodka and Jameson.
Check out the map below to find paczki near you. Many bakeries suggest calling ahead to make sure you have your pick of fillings, but all of these shops said they'll have paczkis for sale through Fat Tuesday.
