Help this dude out

Some poor sap from Toronto is trying to get a reservation at Schwa to no avail. Can anyone help him out?!

Yes We Can . . .

. . . get the 411 on the location for the bar they're trying to keep a secret from everyone! An Ultimate Insider tells me that the recently closed Rockwell Lounge in River North is the new home for Angels & Kings, that hot new rock bar from Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz and company.

Look for it to open in mid-June.

Rick Bayless, house music and more

Frontera Grill chef/owner Rick Bayless will demo at the Green City Market today.

Whether you want to chill out at home with goodies from the market or dance the night away, there's something for everyone on this list:

Yet another rock star chef takes the stage at Green City Market this morning: Rick Bayless of Frontera Grill/Topolobampo fame will demo at 10:30am. The Market runs 7am-1:30pm with seasonal local veggies and fruits. Free.

Kit Kat Lounge & Supper Club is the place to be if you're looking to view Bravo's wildly popular "Top Chef" tonight on five screens and sip themed cocktails. Specials include two-for-one entrees and half-price select cocktails. 9pm.

If the weather is decent today, why not head to River North for the Block Party hosted by Ai and Zocalo? They're celebrating the opening of their new patios with alfresco dining specials, including $3 glasses of Japanese sangria and $3 edamame and selected maki at Ai; $5 margaritas and half-price appetizers at Zocalo. 11:30am-11pm.

You'll dig Trilogy, the deejay-driven event happening every Wednesday at Moonshine. Tonight's lineup features Spencer Lokken, Bear Who and Newlife spinning deep house and remixes. You'll also appreciate all the deals, including half-price pizzas, $15 Absolut vodka pitchers and $15 Hornitos margarita pitchers. 8pm-2am. Free.

More dance music is on tap at Zentra with We Love House Music Wednesdays. Hosted by Allay Soul, Aid to the SouLLess, and House Arrest, the party also includes a host of drink specials, including $2 vodka cocktails (10-11p), $5 tequila and rum cocktails, as well as a $35 bracelet for 9 premium cocktails. 10pm-4am.
