Goose Island is having an "Earth Day Happy Hour" April 19. Details in Slowdown.

Dish confirms that Pasteur, the beloved French-Vietnamese restaurant, will be closing so the owners can concentrate on their newer places, Simply It and Viet Bistro. No closing date was given.

• Also from Dish, Bobtail Ice Cream is having a "Birth of a Flavor" contest. Stop into one of their stores and submit your suggestion for a brand new flavor by April 30th.
