Their Aching Stomachs!

Growing up in Chicago, one of the best events to attend was the annual Taste of Chicago.

Now that the event's over, it's interesting to take a look at the amount of food that's consumed during the event's 10 days.

Holy cow!

With more than 50 restaurants and 200+ offerings on the menus, there was something for everyone.

Some of the food by the numbers:

* The famous Billy Goat Tavern sold an incredible 45,000 "cheezebugahs"

* Dominick's Food Store sold 100,000 watermelon slices.

* Home Run Inn sold 31,000, 6" pizzas

* Vienna hot dogs sold: 32,000

That's not all, either.

Alka-Seltzer anyone?
