New dishes and drinks make the restaurant even better.
I’ve been a big fan of Ra Sushi for years, so when I heard that they were revamping their menu I jumped at the chance to check it out. After trying many of the new dishes and cocktails at the restaurant’s Glenview location, I can attest that in this case change is very, very good. The spot at 2601 Aviator Lane has a hip but relaxed décor. Hanging red spheres cast a mellow glow over the space while bamboo accents lend an earthy appeal. The restaurant was fairly busy when I went for dinner around 7:30 p.m. on a Friday night, mostly occupied by younger diners dressed on the nicer side of casual. Ra Sushi is well equipped to deal with large groups, and there was a birthday dinner going on at a particularly long table. The cocktail menu has …

In celebration of Sweetest Day, Patch catches up with some local love birds.
If you woke up this morning without candies for your honey, you may be in the dog house. Sweetest Day, Valentine's Day's less famous cousin, has become a time for gifts and flowers. It wasn't always that way, however. In fact, Sweetest Day originated in Cleveland, OH, when candy company employee Birch Kingston created the day to bring happiness into lives of the less fortunate—in the form of candy and small gifts for orphans and shut-ins. The holiday gained such popularity that the city of Cleveland officially declared the third Saturday in October "Sweetest Day." Throughout the years, Sweetest Day has evolved into an occasion to spread cheer and happiness to anyone whom we may think of as special—and most often, it seems, a sweetheart. In…
