CHESHIRE BRIDGE— The Sheik Burritos n Kabobs three year anniversary party is this Sunday, December 16. It's going to run from 2 p.m. until dark, and there will be burrito-eating competition at 4 p.m. The event is free, but there's a $20 entry fee for the competition— those who eat three or more burritos in 45 minutes will get their money back; winner gets the rest. The Chic Sheik himself, aka owner Jahan Ostad, issues a personal challenge to all, because he intends to win the contest. Cheer him on or take him down, but make sure to show up because the restaurant is closing on December 23 (to reopen somewhere between Midtown and Virginia Highland this spring). Live music, King of Pops, and SweetWater specials will also be involved. [EaterWire]

BUCKHEADSeven Lamps will officially start serving on Friday, December 14. The restaurant at the Shops Around Lenox was originally slated to open on Monday, and after a few delays, chef/owner Drew van Leuvan and bar manager Arianne Fielder have gotten everything in order and are ready to unlock the doors.
