From the Chicago Sushi Herald*: “The city’s first sushi burrito has arrived, and it’s rolled up with spicy tuna, tempura sweet potato and crab. In other news, Nami Sushi Bar has graciously decided to 1) open, and 2) serve you things like beef tenderloin tartare and curry maki.”

*Not a thing.

Lobster and Reggae and Navy Pier

Lobster and Reggae and Navy Pier

The Air and Water Show and the Great American Lobster Fest are both this weekend. A word of advice: do the latter. They’ll have live New England lobsters and reggae music, as well as unbeatable views of the Air and Water Show. Two birds. One stone. Goodbye.
