Bridget Houlihan Leaving Chicago Bites

By Anthony Todd in Food on Mar 11, 2011 6:20PM

2011_3_11_ChicagoBitesLogo.jpg Chicago Bites is one of my favorite low-key food websites. Co-founders Bridget Houlihan and Tammy Green have been doing great work since 2006. Houlihan announced this morning that she was leaving the site to pursue other projects, and she will be missed.

As many of you know, we're relatively knew to this job, and my first few big events as Associate Editor were fraught with nerves. It sometimes felt like a high school dance - everyone already knew each other, and we were the strange unpopular kid in the corner. Bridget, among others, helped to end that isolation. She is one of those people who always comes up to you with a smile on her face, and the size of that smile isn't determined by your masthead or your number of readers.

All of us here at Chicagoist wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors, and hope that Tammy keeps the site going strong.
