NORTH CENTER — Fans of the cuisine known as "greasy spoon" have just a handful of days left to get their fix at Golden Angel, which closes Sunday.
Described by a Gaper's Block reviewer as "a tour de force of what I imagine the 1960s to have been," the Golden Angel has anchored the North Center/Lincoln Square border for decades. Owner George Kallens recently sold the property to Lou Malnati's, which plans to open a pizza joint on the site in 2014.
Raise a pint to Golden Angel at Northcenter Neighborhood Association's third annual pub crawl, 6:30 p.m., Nov. 15. First stop is the Grace & Leavitt Tavern, with the party migrating to Big Bricks and winding down at Goldie's.
The event is free for association members, $15 for non-members.
Have a far more trivial evening at the Irish American Heritage Center's monthly Quiz Night, 8 p.m., Nov. 15. Cost is $30 per team, maximum of six players. Cash prizes are awarded to first, second and third place.
DANK Haus welcomes neighbors to its monthly Stammtisch, or open house, 7:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., Nov. 15. The gathering is free and open to the public. The featured drink is the Herrengedeck, a beer traditionally served with a shot of Schnapps.
Lincoln Square Lanes is hosting a fundraiser on Saturday for Wright-Way Rescue, an animal rescue and adoption center in Niles that lost its home when a bus crashed into the rescue's building. Tickets to the event, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., Nov. 16, are $75 and include access to a buffet, bowling and music provided by Uptown Shakedown.
Pat Butler, who's been reporting on the North Side for 35 years, will talk about his new book, "Hidden History of Ravenswood and Lake View," 2 p.m., Nov. 16, at Sulzer Library.
