Since Doghouse owner Aaron Wolfson proposed the idea of a mural next to his restaurant, the process of getting it on the wall has taken more than a year, but Thursday, the paint will finally be hitting the wall. The black wall between his restaurant and the McDonald's beside it has regularly been a graffiti target and is generally unattractive, said Wolfson, 29, who lives in the Loop. Located near the six-way intersection of Fullerton, Halsted and Lincoln and right across from DePaul's music school, the area sees heavy foot traffic, and Wolfson wanted to give those people something better to look at. "Lincoln Park is such a beautiful neighborhood, and that wall was not glamorous at all," he said.

Review: Fairways 1141 W. Armitage Ave. 773-698-6020 Rating: !!! (out of four) Off to a good start  As someone who loves golf, I accept that the sport is perceived as hoity-toity. Fairways, a new bar/restaurant/golf simulator spot in Lincoln Park, plays right into that by shooting for foodies as well as die-hard golfers. Does it succeed, and does it have a shot at attracting other patrons? RedEye paid Fairways a visit and came back with these observations, birdie- and bogey-style.

Roy's Furniture broke ground last week on a new building in the same spot where a fire destroyed the Lincoln Park storefront. The furniture store opened at 2455 N. Sheffield Ave. in 1981 and burned down in May. “There's a lot of history in the building that burnt down. We're all excited. We've seen the drawings and know it'll be new and better and we're excited to get back over there,” said general manager Stacey Flood, Roy's niece. The family-run company hired a contractor, whose father erected the original building, to build the new location with plenty of windows.
