’STERING THE POT

A New Little Ramen Joint on Belmont

Sure, it’s been warmer this week. But the weather will inevitably turn. And when it does, you’re going to want a hot bowl of pork, duck or foie gras ramen served in pork bone broth that’s been cooked for 18 hours. Enter: this new noodle joint called Ramenster. Now works, too.

Now open, Ramenster, 919 W Belmont Ave, 773-248-1655

The Cubs. Back to the Future. Beer.
THERE AND BACK AGAIN

The Cubs. Back to the Future. Beer.

Today is Back to the Future Day. Tonight is the NLCS. You need a plan:

First: Watch the game at High Noon Saloon; drink beer.
Then: Hang around after for a screening of the first two Back to the Future movies; drink more beer.

Beer is evidently integral to this operation.

Thursday
First, BBQ. Then, a Chocolate Closet.
LUNCHCAPADES

First, BBQ. Then, a Chocolate Closet.

In the Loop: A new fast-casual BBQ situation with jalapeño-cheddar cornbread and pulled-pork slow-cooked over hardwood. In Streeterville: It’s the second coming of Beatrix, but with a grab-and-go section and a fully stocked chocolate closet. In your head right now: An image of a fully stocked chocolate closet.

Opens Oct 22, Piggyback BBQ, 176 N Wells St, 312-877-5551; opens Oct 22, Beatrix, 671 N St. Clair St, 312-642-0001

HOW UNIQ

A Giant Uniqlo Store on Michigan Ave

Uniqlo, that purveyor of Japanese look-goodery, is opening its first Chicago shop on Michigan Avenue Friday. Get there the same day for sales on their lightweight down jackets, cashmere sweaters and more stuff that’ll feel nice on your person come winter. Sorry we said “winter.”

Sunday
Your Bloody Mary Has Pizza in It
BLOODY HELL
