AROUND TOWN—If you're bravely heading into the far-below-zero temperatures tonight, it's best to make sure your destination is open. Many places, including Analogue, Drumbar, Little Goat, Vice District, Fish Bar, and Summerdale decided not to open. [EaterWire]

WEST LOOP—Graham Elliot Bistro has quite a deal on Groupon right now. It's reservation-based, similar to the one tested at Frontera Grill in September, offering multiple courses and drinks for two or four people for $80 or $160. [EaterWire]

WRIGLEYVILLE—Smart Bar is closed until Thursday, January 15 for a "moderate renovation." [EaterWire]

WICKER PARK—Kanela Wicker Park got its liquor license and will start serving booze tomorrow. There's a selection of mimosas, bellinis, Bloody Marys, and seasonal cocktails on the menu. [EaterWire]
