WEST TOWN–Club Foot, which is set to close on Saturday with a VIP party, will host a garage sale from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily from Nov. 17 to Nov. 29 at the bar, 1824 W. Augusta St. The owners aim to sell the toys, records and collectables that decorate the bar, as well as bar supplies, glassware and bar tables. [EaterWire]

LINCOLN PARK–The owner of Halligan Bar plans on opening a bar by the end of the month right next door. Hook & Ladder will take over the former Wise Fools Pub space at 2270 N. Lincoln Ave., and will serve 30 craft beers. Like Halligan, a prying tool used by firefighters, Hook & Ladder's name is inspired by the owner, a Chicago firefighter. [EaterWire]

LAKEVIEW–Better hurry up and get to DryHop Brewers this week to get a taste of their first barrel-aged beer. The inaugural tapping of Screaming for Vengeance took place on Tuesday, and DryHop says the beer will probably only last until Friday. The oatmeal stout weighs in at 5 percent ABV and was aged for 15 months in a Tailwinds Distilling Co. rum barrel. [EaterWire]

OLD TOWN–The owner of O'Rourke's Public House, a long-time Old Town haunt, died on FridayWill Kilkeary was 74 years old. O'Rourke's was a favorite of Chicago newspapermen Mike Royko and Roger Ebert, and stood from 1965 to 1976 at North Avenue and Orleans Street. The bar later relocated briefly in the 1990s to Halsted Street and North Avenue, on the parcel where Dawali Mediterranean Kitchen now operates. [Sun-Times]
