ELSTON CORRIDOR— Celebrate five years of DMK Restaurants with a complimentary glass of bubbly this month at Ada Street, 1664 Ada St. Throughout 2015, DMK will host a series of anniversary promotions for its 19 restaurants (including DMK Burger Bar, Fish Bar, Henry's Swing Club and Country Barbecue). The events kick off with a free glass of Chateau Montcountour for each Ada Street guest who dines from Jan. 12 through Jan. 17. [EaterWire]

LAKEVIEW— Cullens Bar & Grill has embarked on an online campaign to prevent its shutter. There's a legal battle between Cullen's and the neighboring Mercury Theater, with theater management seeking to replace the bar with a new restaurant. The bar wants customers to contact Ald. Tom Tunney to prevent the closure and has adopted the #SaveCullens hashtag. [Tribune]

AROUND TOWN— After shuttering all of its nearly 40 locations in Chicago, D.C., Minneapolis and New York in June, HomeMade Pizza Co. has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The take-and-bake pizza chain only has $10,000 in assets left. They've also sold intellectual property to Bake 425 which has opened locations using a similar concept in several Chicago suburbs.

RAVENSWOOD— Management has closed the kitchen at Beans & Bagels at the corner of Rockwell and Leland "until further notice." They cited staffing difficulties in a Facebook post and wrote their other location at Montrose and Ravenswood remained fully staffed with an open kitchen. [EaterWire]
