The sun has set for a return of the Elaine Place giraffes, and now it's “Night in Tunisia.” A new piece of art sponsored by Chicago Apartment Finders was installed Tuesday as part of the Chicago Sculpture Exhibit -- a nonprofit organization that sponsors sculptures in Lakeview and Lincoln Park -- at Elaine Place and Roscoe Street, where a pair of large giraffe sculptures had previously stood since 1978. The giraffes were removed in November , when Chicago Apartment Finders purchased the property.  Erin Duffy, community outreach coordinator for Ald. Tom Tunney's (44th)

Burger review: Smashburger 2031 N. Clybourn Ave. 312-800-9010 Rating:  !!! (out of four) One might call opening another burger joint a mere block away from Five Guys Burgers and Fries risky, audacious … even arrogant. Doing so would require, as they would say south of the border in Mexico where I, The Great Burgerelli, just returned from a lovely hamburger holiday, "cojones muy grandes. " That is precisely what the fine folks behind Smashburger have done with their first Chicago location, just a short walk north from Five Guys in Lincoln Park's Clybourn corridor.

A controversial, 40-foot, blue, windmill-style sculpture in Lincoln Park will have its day in court. The city filed a complaint in Cook County circuit court May 31, alleging the giant blue sculpture at Armitage Avenue and Burling Street never had proper permits to be installed, that it poses potential safety hazards and that it causes a "public nuisance" in Lincoln Park. The suit was filed against property owner John Novak, who has had the installation in his yard since 2011. According to the suit, Novak stands to face thousands of dollars worth of penalties for multiple violations of city code.

Chicagoans planning to use their porch this summer should check out the structure first, city officials advised on Wednesday. The city issued porch safety tips on Wednesday, just before the Memorial Day weekend and the 10 th anniversary next month of the fatal Lincoln Park porch collapse that killed 13 people and injured dozens more. "Like any part of a building that is exposed to the varied weather conditions experienced in Chicago, porches should be checked on an annual basis for any wear and tear," Buildings Commissioner Michael Merchant said in a news release.

Mini-review: Tommy Knuckles Tavern & Lounge 433 W. Diversey Parkway 773-248-3230 Rating:  !! (out of four): Give it some time No, Tommy Knuckles isn't a dude. According to owners, the name of this less-than-a-month-old Lincoln Park bar refers to a slang term for someone who is "extremely awesome or certifiably nuts. " It's a bold name, and along with the bar's fist logo, it's almost confrontational. But co-owner Tyrrell Tomlin said the bar should be a laid-back place to hang in Lincoln Park, down to the black-and-white portraits on the walls that are meant to add a dose of nostalgia.

DePaul University students and other Lincoln Park nightowls now have a new way to satisfy their late-night munchies: cookies and milk delivered to your doorstep by Insomnia Cookies, which opened its first Chicago-area location in Lincoln Park Tuesday. "Lincoln Park has everything we look for in a city location: the bars, the nightlife, and with DePaul right here it was kind of just a win," said marketing manager Renee Sarnecky. The shop at 2260 N. Lincoln Ave. is the 32nd location for the company, which was founded in 2003 by a student at the University of Pennsylvania and has since spread to serves dozens of other colleges including Western Michigan University, Ohio State University, New York University and University of South Carolina.
