Maybe it's our proximity to Wisconsin, our proclivities for overflowing pizza slices, or the (generally) rough winters that draw us to stick-to-the-ribs gooeyness three months a year. Whatever the reason, there's no way around it: Chicagoans love cheese.

While we often get creative, dusting it onto Garrett's popcorn or letting it moonlight as a hot dog topping, we definitely appreciate cheese in its purest form, and have plenty of restaurants and vendors to prove it.

Whether they're celebrating the holiday with a special -- such as BIN 36's Cheese Happy Hour -- or doling out top-notch dairy as usual in honor of National Cheese Day on Monday, these cheeseries in the greater Chicago area can scratch any type of fan's itch, from the gourmet to the undiscriminating mac-eater.

Check out some of our favorite places to cheese out, and tell us about your go-tos in the comments:
