—Looks like there's a bit of friction between Phil Tadros, owner of Bow Truss Coffee Roasters and the owner of the other coffee company Tadros previously founded, Dollop CoffeeDNAinfo interviewed Dollop owner Dan Weiss who said Tadros unfairly criticized the Dollop brand where they pour Metropolis coffee. Meanwhile, the Bow Truss bandwagon continues to grow. Today they're opening a coffee bar inside the 1,700-square-foot Fox Trot market at 1019 W. Lake St.

—The Tour de Franks (sign up info in the link) returns to Chicago this summer in late June. Dates haven't been revealed yet, but a group of casual cyclists gets together to tour some of Chicago's best hot dog stands. There's eight stops, and it will go from 1 p.m. to around 8 p.m. Last year's ride covered 16 miles.

Left Coast Food & Juice, the healthy concept that's sprouting up in Lakeview (the one Paul Kahan consulted on), is looking to open in April, reported DNAinfo. Originally the concept, which ownership wants to scale elsewhere, was supposed to open this month. One Off Hospitality Group's not involved.

The White Oak Tavern & Inn is now taking reservations for a special dinner on April 3 cooked by chef Andy Little of Nashville's acclaimed Josephine. Call (773) 248-0200 for reservations and hit the link for more details.

Fountainhead is kicking of the bar's Whisk(e)y Week on Tuesday, March 15. From March 15 through March 17, they'll offer rare whiskies, chances to speak with experts and more. For more info, click here.

—Dates have been unveiled for this year's Hyde Park Beer Fest. It will take take place June 4 and 5, but the venue's moved to Nichols Park, reported DNAinfo.
