LOGAN SQUARE—For one day (June 30), Fat Rice is taking reservations. For the fifth time, extending back to the years when Abraham Conlon and Adrienne Lo ran the underground dining club X-Marx, they're holding a day-long series in conjunction with Perman Wine Selections celebrating the Spanish white wine Txakolina. Each seating is $55 and includes pintxos and petiscos. [EaterWire]

WICKER PARK—Another coffee shop is coming to Wicker Park, as La Colombe is taking over the Greener Cleaner space under the Damen Blue Line stop. The target opening is in November. [DNAinfo]

ASPEN—The Chicago reign of the Cochon 555 King of Porc is over. San Francisco's Adam Sobel beat out Publican Quality Meats' Cosmo Goss to win the 2013 title last night. Nightwood's Jason Vincent won last year, he was also honored over the weekend as one of Food & Wine's Best New Chefs. [EaterWire]

WICKER PARK—The Big Star patio was the victim of a water balloon thrown from off-premise yesterday that knocked down a string of lights. One woman was treated by a paramedic, although she stayed and avoided a hospital visit. [EaterWire]
