— After leaving its West Loop home of more than 26 years earlier this month, the owners of Wishbone will open its new spot in the neighborhood on Friday after concluding friends and family services and private events this week. The full “best of” Southern-tinged menu, which will be served in the large space at 161 N. Jefferson Street that was previously home to Bin 36, is available below.

— A hot Eater 38 restaurant is gearing up to launch brunch service. Proxi, the more casual, global spot from the owners of Sepia in the West Loop, will serve Saturday and Sunday brunch with unique spins on micheladas, kimchi fried rice, Vietnamese iced coffee and more beginning November 10. The full menu is available below, which also includes doughnuts with Vietnamese pastry cream, a catfish banh mi, and few items from the dinner menu.

— Another longtime Wrigleyville bar is making changes as neighborhood businesses try to keep up with new development. Ownership of Vines on Clark, the 3554 N. Clark Street spot from the owners of Cubby Bear and Sports Corner, announced via its website and social media accounts that the bar closed for renovations this week. There’s no word yet when it could reopen or what the renovations will entail.

Eleven Eleven, the new restaurant and bar in the Honey’s space at 1111 W. Lake Street, opened its second floor lounge a couple months after opening the first-floor restaurant and bar. Owner Ahmed Braimah previously said the lounge would be named NextLevel and that it’ll focus on large-format cocktails and Champagne.

— And finally, the run of the Fleetwood Mac popupRhiannon” has been extended again. Originally slated to end tonight upstairs at the Rookery with a Stevie Nicks costume contest for Halloween, it’ll now stay open through November 17. Its run has proved popular and has been relaunched and extended multiple times.
