Breaking: Chicago Couple Wins Food Network TV Show

Two Chicago Boystown caterers, Hearty Boys' Dan Smith and Steve McDonagh, won their own show on the Food Network.

Dancing and merriment was seen on Halsted after the annoucement, although it's unclear as to whether celebrations were due to the response to the Food Network annoucement or spillover from the earlier Pride Parade.

Dan and Steve beat out seven other contestants in a month-long competition. The couple's new show starts this fall.
