LAKEVIEW—How about our Chicago Blackhawks, huh? If you're looking to continue to celebrate the Stanley Cup home win, The Pony has a few $5 specials (22-ounce stadium cups, Fireball and Hawks punch). The cup itself may even show up there. [EaterWire]

FULTON MARKET—Announced this morning on WXRT's Lin Brehmer show, the 4th annual Rockin' Lobster Bash (presented by WXRT and Supreme Lobster) will take place at the Revel Fulton Market space on September 2 with a veritable who's who of participating chefs. Just to name a few (more will be announced): Rick Bayless (Topolobampo), Travis Swikard (Boulud Sud NYC) and Jake Bickelhaupt (42 Grams). Tickets are now on sale ($65 for general admission in pre-sale which go up to $90 after, and $125 for VIP) and include food and drinks. [EaterWire]

TAMPA—Speaking of the Blackhawks, the Tampa Bay Lightning may not have won the Stanley Cup, but they are getting a Portillo's it turns out. The company announced the news this morning. So Tampa fans can drown their sorrows in a mountain of Chicago dogs, Italian beefs and chocolate cake shakes. [EaterWire]

WEST LOOP—Though his restaurant and to-go storefront closed before his death, Charlie Trotter's food lives on at Whole Foods. The Chicago Tribune's Kevin Pang digs into how the two vacuum-sealed salmon packages the store sells (four ounces for $10.99) are made and how they taste. [Tribune]

STREETERVILLE—There's a new executive chef running Rosebud Steakhouse, Andrew Sikkerlerus, who will launch weekend brunch service beginning Sunday, June 28. Brunch is $35 per person ($12.95 for kids under 12) where guests can graze for oysters, shrimp, smoked salmon and salad and one chosen entrée. [EaterWire]
