RIVER NORTH—Want to hang out where the celebrities do? Chicago Cut Steakhouse was voted as the most popular for celeb and athlete sightings. President Barack Obama, Charles Barkley, Derek Jeter, Kate Upton, Jay Z, Beyonce and more have spent time there in 2014. Nellcote is the favorite for bands, while Lou Malnati's and Giordano's are at a dead heat for favorite celeb pizza.

WICKER PARK—Around 20 years after its last occupant left, a corner storefront will eventually see the arrival of Knead Pizza Company. The project, located at 2101 W. North Ave., is owned by Michael Waicekausakas, who was issued a building permit by the city of Chicago last week. [DNAinfo]

UKRAINIAN VILLAGE—There's time to get over to Arami for their monthly noodle night this evening. There are six different noodle dishes available (priced between $14 and $17), Asahi Japanese beer ($4), as well as complimentary tableside sake tastings. [EaterWire]

LOGAN SQUARE—The ice rink at Parson's Chicken and Fish hasn't opened yet due to uncooperative (at least when it comes to skating) weather. Once temps cooperate, the cost will be $5 to skate and there should be a hot drink menu in place as well. [DNAinfo]

RIVER WESTSushi X closed last night for a little remodeling. They're due to reopen for service tomorrow night. [EaterWire]
