SOUTH STREET — Thai taqueria Tuk Tuk Real will shut its doors on Sunday, June 28, as previously reported, to rebrand as a third location of Circles Thai. As a parting gift, the restaurant will be giving one free taco to anyone who stops by between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. on its final night. (A rep also tells us that Tuk Tuk Real gift cards will be honored at Circles South Street once it opens — but not at other Circles locations — in case you were wondering.) [EaterWire]

LISTICLES — Food Network Magazine says that Continental's Szechuan shoestring fries are among the ten best fries in the country. Add them to your list along with these 25 must-try fries we previously rounded up (but please, pace yourself). [EaterWire]

NOLIBS — North Bowl is seeking entrants and their best tater tot creations for its second annual Tot Chef competition, which will take place on Saturday, August 1.
