Giordano's Sues Deli Over Name; The Boarding House Offers $28 Wine Bottles; More

GOLD COAST—Chicago pizza giants Giordano's are suing a Downers Grove deli with a similar name. Giordano Fresh & Crispy Pizza Co. is causing confusion and their logo looks too much like that of Giordano's (which has a location two miles from the deli), the suit claims. An injunction of the name Giordano is being asked for, as well as three times the profits the store has made from use of the name. [CRED]

RIVER NORTH—The Boarding House will begin offering limited, specially priced bottles of wine for $28 Sunday evenings in September. Some of the spotlighted specials (available in the first floor bar only) feature wines that are regularly priced at $100, to those that are the current favorites of proprietor/master sommelier Alpana Singh. The first floor bar is open every Sunday from 4:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. [EaterWire]

HIGHWOOD—Bertucci's in Highwood is closing after 23 years. If you've never been, you have until Sunday night's service to rectify that. [Patch]

WEST TOWN—Labor Day weekend is going "hog wild," it seems. You already know about the Windy City BBQ Classic happening in the south parking lot at Soldier Field on Sunday, but there is another hog fest that day as well. Chicago Hog Fight at Mahoney's Pub & Grill (551 N. Ogden Ave.) will have chefs from Frontier, Fireplace Inn, Mercat a la Planxa and more each cook whole hog for a purse of $1,000. $25 gets you all-you-can-eat porky goodness with southern sides and two drink tickets. Purchase your tickets here. [Redeye]
