Detectives Nick Burkhardt and Hank Griffin investigate a home invasion in the latest episode of "Grimm" debuting at 8 p.m. Nov. 4 on NBC. But as you'd expect in a show about fractured fairy tales and an episode titled "Bears Will Be Bears," it isn't your normal case of breaking-and-entering. Nick (David Giuntoli) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) meet a mysterious family whose cultural background blurs the line of right and wrong, not to mention human and, um, not human. Nick also asks his new wolf buddy, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell)

In the U.K., there is trainspotting. In Chicago, we have TamaleGuyspotting. Like the yeti, the Loch Ness Monster, Elvis and Santa, the Tamale Guy has taken on the aura of a mythical creature. One minute you'd be sitting in a bar, alone and crying, curled up in a fetal position, drunk - and then, a shining beacon of Hispanic hope appears! Hot. Damn. Tamales so good they make you wanna drop to the floor and praise Jesus. The name? Claudio Velez. Now show some respect. Back in the day (sometime in 2004)

Forget the tamale guy. Late-night eaters in Ukrainian Village now have a new option thanks to a hot dog shop that opened in early February. The team behind rock music/prison-themed burger bar Lockdown has opened Phil's Last Stand (2258 W. Chicago Ave. 773-245-3287), which serves a selection of classic char-dogs, burgers and sandwiches such as grilled salami. The spot was named after 440-pound Phil Ashbach, who owned several hot dog stands and restaurants throughout his lifetime, and for whom the signature “Double Fatso” burger is named.
