What's that?! A cupcake truck roaming the streets of Chicago this summer?
We're looking forward to Flirty Cupcakes, which will offer gourmet-style sweets on some of the busiest blocks in the city.
So many people are getting engaged later in life, which means that when it comes to registering for their weddings, they really don't need anything.
Case in point is Ben and Jennifer Reid, who were frustrated at the registry options during their engagement in 2008. The couple didn't need any additional household products, but they wanted something to celebrate their new union.
After a frustrating few hours at a department store, Jennifer went home and had an epiphany. She and Ben were big-time dining enthusiasts, so they asked all their friends and family to give them gift certificates to their favorite Chicago restaurants.
That's when they decided to launch Foodie Registry, so that other like-minded engaged couples could enjoy months and months and months of what they've coined as Free Dinner Date Night—courtesy of family and friends.
