WEST LOOP—Staffing continues to fall in place for the long-awaited OON. Sean Currie (Bin Wine Cafe', Moderno), chef Matt Eversman's classmate at Le Cordon Bleu, will be his right-hand man as the OON sous chef, following the hiring of Jon McDaniel as General/Beverage Manager. Currie and Eversman also worked together on popups. [EaterWire]

RIVER NORTH—The tenth Protein Bar location is opening up tomorrow in The Merchandise Mart. The first 50 customers in line at 11 a.m. will receive a free quinoa bowl. [EaterWire]

WEST TOWN—Tomorrow is Roots Handmade's two year anniversary, and naturally there will be a party and specials. Two chefs are making special pizzas for the occasion (Antique Taco's Rick Ortiz's chili cheese curd pizza and Homstead's Chris Curren's lobster pizza) plus 20 percent off all dine-in pizzas, birthday cake from West Town Bakery, and all sorts of drink specials.

SOUTH LOOP—A new juice bar, FruVe, is coming to 1130 S. Wabash. They're calling themselves the "world's most complete juice bar." [Sloopin]

OAK BROOK—An Old Town Pour House suburban location is in the works. Bottleneck Management is targeting a fall opening for the expansion with more locations on the horizon. [Crain's]
