How’s this for a fair trade?

Chicago gets the Stanley Cup and Tampa Bay gets a Portillo’s.

The dining chain will be bringing its Chicago-style dogs and Italian beef sandwiches to Tampa next year. And it took out a full page ad on Tuesday in the Tampa Bay Times to let Floridians know the good news while riding the Blackhawks bandwagon.

Let’s hope they’re as excited in Tampa as our neighbors were in Rockford:
