If you’re a fan of professional wrestling, the place to hang out and eat some great food is The Squared Circle (2418 N Ashland Ave  Chicago, IL 60614). The eatery is run by former WWE Diva/TNA Knockout Lisa Marie Varon, and her husband Lee Varon. 

The wrestling-themed restaurant - consider it a Hard Rock Café for fans of sports entertainment - has become the most popular place in Chicago to watch pay-per-view events. Having seen a few there myself, I can say that the place really comes to life when it fills up for a viewing or meet-and-greet with a wrestling star.

Speaking of meet-and-greets, this Monday The Squared Circle will be holding one for Kia Stevens - AKA WWE Diva "Kharma" and TNA Knockout "Awesome Kong"!

Stevens - who is currently staying with the alias Kharma -  is known as one of the most dominant female wrestlers in the business, having won championships in TNA, AWA and Japan. She even appeared as a competitor in the WWE’s Royal Rumble in 2012, making her one of only 3 women to appear in the predominantly-male event.

Kharma will be on hand this Monday, September 7, during The Squared Circle’s viewing of WWE RAW from 7-10 pm. Fans are encouraged to attend, meet Kharma and eat some tasty grub!

And be sure to order the Svengoolie Burger!
