Friistyle really stands out once you head inside, though, serving an entirely unique kind of entrée: fries. Usually relegated to the status of soggy side dish, thick Belgian-style fries are the basis of every meal made in this small, bustling spot. The entirely gluten-free menu includes fries topped with sweet chicken wings, roasted lamb, jerk salmon, Italian beef, and plenty more. Unlike typical loaded fries, the toppings don’t overwhelm their potato underpinnings. The fries at Friistyle are cut thick and double-fried, impervious even to toppings like jerk barbecue sauce and melted smoked cheese.

A LEGO set review of a LEGO set that is a LEGO store? Sure, why not? This year’s first LEGO set review is on set #40305, the LEGO Brand Store. Only available from official LEGO stores (the closest one to campus being on the second floor of Water Tower Place along the Magnificent Mile), this meta set, as its name implies, is a miniature version of a LEGO store in minifigure scale.

Battlefield V: a failure in game marketing?

As one of the largest video game franchises currently on the market, the “Battlefield” series developed by Electronic Arts Digital Illusions CE (EA DICE) is currently slated for its 16th installment in October of 2018. Dubbed “Battlefield V,” this game will see a return to the series’ origins in World War II (WWII), a setting not seen in the series since the 2009 release of “Battlefield 1943.” However, from the first reveal of the game on May 23, 2018 through the publication of this article, opinions on the games have been lackluster at best, and outright frustrated at worst.
