Lincoln Park restaurant North Pond is following the lead of Obama's campaign and closing for Election Day, Dish reports:

"It's the most important election of our lifetime, poised to have great historical significance," says Bruce Sherman, the chef-partner. "There are very important matters to consider that day [other than North Pond], including those relating to our food system. And as a father, it's important to me that I have this experience with my daughters."
