Mercadito Counter's Rotating Cocktails; Table, Donkey and Stick's Halloween Offal Dinner; More

RIVER NORTH—When Mercadito Counter opens later this year, it will boast the Tippling Bros.' largest tap beverage program yet. A few of the cocktails from Mercadito will find their way on this new spot (including the awesomely named Big Nose Gets Misty with tropical flavors of hibiscus, orange, and ginger) to sit among the 20 offerings (some will be rotated out for new options to be added in), along with tequila, beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks.

LOGAN SQUARE—Tonight's sausage special at Table, Donkey and Stick is a garlic sausage with spaetzle, apple mustards, and mustard greens from Growing Power ($1 from each sausage sold will go to benefit the charity). Tomorrow night, come back for their Halloween Offal Dinner, featuring six offal courses and a special treat for $60 per person. To make reservations visit their website or call 773-486-8525.

FULTON MARKET—Martin Kastner gives a lengthy and insightful interview on Eater National where he discusses how his designs (including those for The Aviary) become a reality, the methods he uses to solve problems, as well as the enormous success of his Kickstarter campaign (he raised an astonishing $700,000+ and only needed $28,500).

WEST LOOP—If you're looking for something to warm you up while out trick-or-treating tomorrow, stop by The Garage (116 N Aberdeen) between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. for the latest Food Truck Rally. The competing trucks (The Salsa Truck, Husky Hog BBQ, The Fat Shallot, Haute & Ready) will go head to head in a chili cook-off. Sweets will be provided by The Gladwell Company and Beaver Donuts.

CHICAGOLAND—Chipotle's Boorito is upon us again. For $3, customers dressed in costume will get a burrito, bowl, salad, or order of tacos from 4 p.m. until closing. Money from the fundraiser goes to the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation, which helps to raise awareness of food issues and to promote a sustainable and healthy food supply, as well as supporting family farmers.
