It's about time Lettuce Entertain You threw its hat in the food truck ring.

Just got word that we should expect the Buns on the Run mobile vehicle out on the streets within the next few weeks or so—courtesy of Wow Bao. It'll be pushing the pillowy, savory bites known as "baos" in flavors like teriyaki chicken, spicy Mongolian beef, spicy Kung Pao chicken and BBQ pork.

Get that sweet tooth ready . . .

This Loop location for Mrs. Fields is unveiling a new look and concept Thursday, and to celebrate they're giving away free cookies and lattes. This particular Chicago store is the first in the country to undergo the new design that's contemporary and feels more like a cozy coffeehouse than cookie store.

This sounds like a really cool event, but will folks actually get in the spirit and participate?!

Duchamp's main mixologist Kris Von Dopek is throwing one helluva retro bash on the patio this weekend. He's partnering with Reyka Vodka for a punch party with a Viking theme. Whether we'll see a bunch of golden-haired Thor wannabes remains to be seen, but revelers are strongly encouraged to dress up in "their favorite Viking garb."
