    Rica Arepa Venezuelan Café Makes Some Seriously Hearty Arepas
    Published today at 12:00 p.m. Husband-and-wife owners Kharim Rincon and Maria Uzcategui make seriously hearty arepas.

    Which do you prefer, Chicago? Outside: Peruse murals in Pilsen, party for Logan Square or watch the game. Inside: Grab a matinee or a double feature or, again, watch the game.
