After five years of providing Lincoln Park with sand, indoor bags games and a venue in which to chug an entire fishbowl of brightly colored booze, Uncle Fatty's Rum Resort will close its doors May 4. Co-owner Brian Galati today announced that he and his partners will expand next-door Headquarters Beercade , which they also run, into the space currently occupied by Uncle Fatty's. "It was near and dear to our hearts," Galati said. "[Uncle Fatty's] was a concept everybody counted out in the beginning and here we are five years later.

This has been Lincoln's year. Even though Abraham Lincoln would have turned 204 years old last month, he's still a pretty popular guy. The proof: The "Lincoln" DVD comes out March 26. The movie has grossed more than $180 million in the U.S. since it came out in theaters in November. Daniel Day-Lewis won the Oscar for the lead role in "Lincoln" in February, a month after the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation going into effect. Don't forget how good old Abe was featured as a vampire hunter in yet another movie and fought zombies in a straight-to-DVD movie.

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.

UPDATE: The Chicago Doghouse says about 20 people filed in for their free dessert Sunday as the Hawks extended their points streak to 22. Aaron Wolfson, owner of the Lincoln Park shop, said the offer for a free deep fried Oreo dessert will go for any win this season. The Chicago Doghouse even got a shoutout for their offer on ESPN1000 this week, Wolfson said.  Aaron Wolfson realized that when you deep fry an Oreo covered in chocolate cake batter and peanut butter, the confection comes out looking like a hockey puck.

Burger review: Kuma's Too 666 W. Diversey Parkway 773-472-2666 Rating:  !!!! (out of four) It is a widely held belief that the best burgers in Chicago are found in a heavy metal bar on the far northwest neighborhood of Avondale serving patties named after Pantera and Black Sabbath. The place that I speak of, dear burger fans, is Kuma's Corner, and it is also notorious for its no-reservations policy and hours-long waits. Truth be told, I, The Great Burgerelli, have never shared in Kuma's enthusiasm for death metal (I much prefer Morrissey, The Smiths and the occasional dose of underground French dance music, if you must know)

Burger review: Edzo's Burger Shop 2218 N. Lincoln Ave. 773-697-9909 Rating:  !!! (out of 4) As a fearless seeker of fine burgers, The Great Burgerelli makes a concerted effort to stay attuned to what local burger lovers are buzzing about. It is for that reason that I can say with certainty that one of the most talked-about burgers in greater Chicagoland is Edzo's Burger Shop. Because Edzo's is located in the north suburb of Evanston and my professional burger adventures are focused on the Chicago proper - technicalities, technicalities - it is an unfortunate truth that I have not had the opportunity to dine there.

Having a girl's pint out in Chicago just got a little easier this fall with the launch of Barley's Angels--a growing network of chapters around the globe for women seeking a comfortable milieu to learn about craft beer. But don't be fooled by the group's name and logo--a clever wink at the jiggly, hair-model pretty crime fighters of the iconic '70s TV show--Barley's Angel's is not a social beer-drinking club for women, but a serious forum for beer enthusiasts with a thirst for knowledge.
