There's Still Time To Submit Your Best (Food) Porn Snaps!

2
So, you're updating your Instagram with snaps of you and your gal pals living it up at dinner, and just as you're about to get that winning Sneaky Pics shot of the gorgeous guy at the bar, the food comes out and suddenly, you are severely distracted. It's time for a little food porn. You know, those in-the-moment shots capturing to-die-for dishes that you feel inclined to share with everyone on Facebook, complete with exclamatory remarks that capture your excitement to dive in and chow.

Well, we want you to share your winning snaps with us, too, so we're compiling our reader's favorite Instagram or Twitter food porn pictures — like this delish mac 'n' cheese from Atwood Café. Next, we'll choose the best snaps to feature in a story that will run on Monday, February 18. Here's the deal: Send in your snap (email me, at Rebecca.Taras@refinery29.com), what it is, where it's from (must be a Chicago spot), and why you think it's the bees knees by Friday, February 8, to be considered. Oh, and don't forget to tell us your name and what 'hood you live in so we can give credit where credit is due. Happy eating!
