— For the third time in less than three years, a brewery is coming to a Northwest Side space. Local beer-maker Twisted Hippo has signed a lease to take over the former Finch Kitchen and Breakroom Brewery space at 2925 W. Montrose Avenue, the Sun-Times reported first, and ownership — who still hasn’t responded to multiple inquiries — hopes to open it sometime this year. Breakroom Brewery closed in May 2016, and Finch Kitchen took over the space soon after but also closed the following December. A fourth brewery — Ravinia Brewing Co. — announced it was taking over the space in May 2017 but apparently that didn’t work out. Will it work out for Twisted Hippo?

Replay Lincoln Park’s Rick and Morty” popup will end on February 11 after Turner Broadcasting contacted the bar, RedEye reports.
