Looks like we're getting a trendy Wicker Park sandwich shop in the Sloop (kinda) - via ChicagoTribune:
The Chicago Park District has partnered with Pork & Mindy’s, the Wicker Park sandwich shop helmed by Food Network star Jeff Mauro, to open what amounts to a pop-up lakefront food court steps from the Shedd Aquarium, and walkable from The Field Museum, Adler Planetarium, Soldier Field and Northerly Island. Dubbed The Link, the pop-up is housed in the Chicago Horizon, an open-air structure built last fall.
Pork & Mindy’s is the first restaurant to make use of the award-winning space, but other vendors are encouraged to apply. The 4,000 square-foot-space can host up to five vendors and has seating for 40 people. You can also ask for a picnic blanket, and take your lunch or dinner to the surrounding lawn.
