It was a day this week at the Daily Bar & Grill that began like any other for server Chris Necker. The weather was nice Monday and the patio was getting full for lunch shortly after the Lincoln Square restaurant opened for business. His regular customers--an older couple--came in. They sat down, and Necker gave them their drinks. But when he came back to their table, the man was splashing water on the woman's face. Necker, 27, said she was pale and her eyes were rolling back into her head.

Two violent, daytime store robberies in the past week have some Lincoln Square retailers rethinking their security procedures. Chicago Area North police issued a community alert about the incidents, which both took place when just one employee was present at the North Side retail stores. In both cases, a man punched the store employees after taking money from their registers, according to the police alert. The man who targetted Soggy Paws's SP2 pet supply store on Leland Avenue on Thursday afternoon didn't dip into the array of sqeaky dog toys or cat grooming tools lining...

Two women were killed in homicides in the last week, a RedEye analysis of preliminary police data found. A 37-year-old woman was fatally struck by a car Sunday in the 1100 block of North Mason Avenue in Austin, according to officials. The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office ruled the death a homicide. Three days earlier, a 24-year-old woman was shot to death in the 6600 block of South Stony Island Avenue in Woodlawn, police said. Female homicide victims account for about 12 percent of the 386 homicide victims this year, as of Wednesday afternoon.

($3.50) Eva Fleming, 23, Lakeshore East: "I rarely buy PBR myself. Usually I drink it when someone in a group says they're going to order a round of beers for everyone, that's what they usually order. PBR is the universal language of bad, cheap beers. " ($3) Simon Willums, 36, Bucktown: "I drink PBR four or five times a week. It's mostly the price that does it for me, but I guess maybe I've grown to like the taste a lot too. " ($2) Kevin Weber, 27, Humboldt Park: "Every now and then I get a PBR when it's late at night.

Worth a trip: Lumpia Shanghai at Isla Pilipina 2501 W. Lawrence Ave. Unit D 773-271-2988 It's not so much a restaurant as it is a movement. When Ray Espiritu took over the Lincoln Square restaurant Isla Pilipina from his parents six years ago, it was very traditional, serving mostly expat Filipinos. Fresh out of art school, Espiritu didn't just want to serve food; he wanted to elevate Filipino cuisine and culture in Chicago. He wanted to help the community and create something that was an extension of his personality.
