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.

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.

— And finally, the run of the Fleetwood Mac popup “Rhiannon” 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.
