One of my peeps just checked in with this email: "My friend and I were going to go to Fan Si Pan (1618 W. Chicago Ave.) for lunch and the damn place is totally closed, garbage bags over the windows, etc..any
idea of what happened there?"
I followed up and called the casual Vietnamese eatery specializing in flavorful oversized spring rolls and french-fried green beans. No answer, with phone ringing off the hook. I'm going to go ahead and guess that since I never saw anyone in the place it was time for them to go.
