LINCOLN SQUAREIt seems as if moving from Spring Hill Mall and relocating to Chicago has been a success for the folks behind Taco In a Bag. Ownership were "slammed" yesterday, according to a Facebook post, leaving them with just enough to get through the first day of service. They prepared three days of food that was gone in one eight hour shift and posted a sign asking for patience from their guests. They re-open tonight at 6:00 p.m. [DNAinfo]

WEST TOWNGoose Island has released Blue Line beer that is only available on tap. Right now it's only available at three spots: Primebar, Beer Bistro and Lincoln Square Lanes. [TOC]

WICKER PARKJust a few days after a Brooklyn bar terminated their weekly Game of Thrones viewing parties after receiving a cease and desist letter from HBO, Geek Bar Beta finds themselves facing a similar problem. Owner David Zoltan plans on closing up on Sundays for private events during the show's run time but doesn't confirm that the hit fantasy show will actually be screened or not. HBO has had a long history of putting a stop to public screenings of their content. [Tribune]

WILMETTEMore ice cream trouble today as 80-year-old Homer's Ice Cream is at the center of a lawsuit involving three brothers. Stephen Poulos' sons Craig and Todd have taken action against their uncles Dean and Jon alleging money mismanagement and forcing their father, afflicted with Alzheimer's disease, into writing a check for $50,000.
