This Is Trench. It Used to Be Trenchermen.
TRENCH WARMER

This Is Trench. It Used to Be Trenchermen.

Then: This was Trenchermen. Now: It’s just Trench. Then: You had a Pat Sheerin-helmed kitchen. Now: Jared Wentworth’s making you Kentucky fried quail, bone-marrow cornbread and other nice tavern fare. Then: It occupied an old bathhouse. Now: Still does. But there’s a DJ booth. Hope you’re cool with all of that.

Le Duck is a comely French-Asian restaurant in Wicker Park with orange chicken wings, Japanese chicken katsu curry and caramel custard. There’s also duck over rice and BBQ duck wraps. They justify calling this restaurant Le Duck.

Now open, Le Duck, 1359 N Milwaukee Ave, 773-661-2542

HAUT TO TROT

Gratis Vosges Chocolate and Rum Cocktails. Neat.

Not long ago, we rounded up a few sexy, sweet and otherwise unique Valentine’s Day gifts. We neglected to inform you, however, of a little pre-holiday Vosges chocolate tasting happening this Friday, featuring gratis rum drinks and samples from their new collection. So we’re doing that now.

Saturday
A Tale of Two Sales
CLOTHES ONE

A Tale of Two Sales

For the exceptionally sleek: Rag & Bone is taking up to 50% off monochromatic sweaters, button-downs and jeans, with more markdowns coming soon.
For the ruggedly handsome: Independence’s end-of-season sale boasts discounts on Gitman Bros. Japanese flannel shirts, cotton moleskin pants and diamond-quilted down jackets.
For you: Maybe both.

You can take in the game and a bottomless seafood boil at Lowcountry. The over/under for crab legs consumed is set at 8.

Sam Eichner likes literature, reality television and his twin cats equally. He has consistently been told he needs a shave since he started growing facial hair.
