RIVER NORTH—Oak + Char just announced that they will open for dinner service this coming Thursday whether or not they have a liquor license. Keep an eye here to find out when that license is secured and the booze begins to flow. To get you prepped, take a peek inside the restaurant and read over their menus. [EaterWire]

LOGAN SQUARELula Cafe has "dressed up" for Halloween for years (one iteration, dubbed "Taco Hell," featured Rick Bayless as Satan), but this year will be the last. To celebrate the restaurant's fifteenth anniversary, they will throw a quinceañera (sort of like a "Sweet Sixteen" party) and dress the whole joint up in pink, gold and white. You can still come dressed as you like for the evening. [DNAinfo]

WICKER PARKEvil Olive is relaunching this Wednesday and will be utilizing their huge LED wall with a 4D jungle theme on the dance floor, a back room underwater experience and an upstairs voodoo palace. All of this is geared towards giving revelers the feeling of being on an island. Hurry in to join in the island merriment before it ends Monday, November 3. [EaterWire]
