Becca can't believe that she came out as a vegetarian.
Steph can't believe that she was quoted saying "fart".
Alisa can't believe that people can recognize her in the store without her novelty jumbo mustache.

But seriously, our sincere, non-jokey, thanks to Jessica Herman, Andrew Nawrocki and Kevin Aeh at Time Out Chicago
