The Quiote Guys Have a Taco Truck Now

First, we told you about Quiote. Now, we're happy to inform you that they've partnered with street artist Dont Fret to turn the former Salsa Truck into a mean, green, taco-slinging machine that's permanently parked on the back patio. Stop by for some al pastor and a Paloma Roja. Thank us later.

TRIAL BY FIRE

Lost Lake Has Been Very Busy Lately

From the ashes of the great fire that destroyed Lost Lake's kitchen comes... well, grilled chicken wings and five spice duck confit. Yes, the tiki bar's food program is back and better than ever. But it's also got a new bar-within-a-bar that'll do things like host this weekend's Trash Tiki party. New and improved, indeed.

STRANGEST THINGS

Two Very Different Logan Square Pop-Ups

Your seafood-and-Stranger-Things evening goes like this: smoked oysters Rockefeller and whole striped bass at Good Fortune, the pop-up helmed by some Honey's alums. Then, Eggo Waffle slushies at the Upside Down, that bar with an entire living room set affixed to the ceiling. Yep. Just like that.

Now open, Good Fortune, 3213 W Armitage Ave, 773-486-7465; now open through Sept, The Upside Down, 2367 N Milwaukee Ave, 872-206-5245

Mayweather vs McGregor on 16 Screens Should Do

In what's being pegged as the greatest fight in pay-per-view history, boxing legend Floyd Mayweather takes on mixed martial artist Conor McGregor. But you already knew that. Did you know that you can catch all the action on Rockit's 60-inch TVs while sipping on $7 cocktails, though? Now you do.

FALL FORWARD

Go Ahead, Take Half-Off Some Rag & Bone

Rag & Bone is clearing out its metaphorical closet and you get to reap the benefits. Catch some not-insignificant deals on a new suede jacket and a pair of chinos and whatever else as they make room for fall's lineup. Sorry we had to say "fall" just then.

What Else Is New

Sarah Freeman is often accused of hiding secrets in her hair. She can make any cocktail, as long as that cocktail is a rye Old Fashioned, and has never met a saison she didn’t like.
