THE LOOP— Loop workers will have another lunch option, as Porkchop is gearing up to open its fourth location, this one at 29 E. Adams St. It will be fast service, but offer a menu that's "almost identical" to the flagship in the West Loop without offering booze. Initially they'll serve lunch and dinner with future plans to serve breakfast. [EaterWire]

NORTH CENTER— Chicago Joe's days could be numbered. A developer wants to raze the White Sox-centric bar at 2256 W. Irving Park Road to make room for a mixed-use development. They've already submitted a zoning application to the city. [Curbed Chicago]

OAK PARK— Beer Shop is a retail and bar concept aimed to open in the spring in Oak Park at 1026 North Blvd. It won't serve food, which may throw a wrench in the licensing process. [Crain's]

EVANSTON— Noyes Street Cafe, an Evanston staple for 25 years, abruptly closed on Sunday. There's no mention on its website or a greeting on its phone lines. A sign on the window did say the closing was permanent. [Evanston Now]
