EVANSTON—If you don't feel silly using the phrase "got butter?", you could win a free lobster dinner on Thursday. Kicking off the more than a month-long Lobster Fest, Davis Street Fishmarket is giving away 29 lobster dinners to the first people to utter those words. They're also offering lobster specials and a lobster cooking class on January 15. [EaterWire]

RAVENSWOOD—River Valley Farmer's Table, the Wisconsin farm-based grocery and cafe, is now open in the former City Provisions space at 1820 W. Wilson. They're holding a grand opening on New Year's Day featuring a 38 percent off promotion. In addition to grocery items, look for bagels, pastries, tamales, veggie burgers, and weekend brunch.

LOGAN SQUARE—Usually closed on Sundays and Mondays, Fat Rice will be open tonight. There's also a few tickets left for their "Fat and Happy" New Year's Eve events. [EaterWire]

BOYSTOWN—Hydrate, that bar and club on the corner of Halsted and Cornelia, will close January 5 for "extensive reconstruction." Expect the reopening to occur by the end of February. [Patch]
