SAN DIEGO—This just in from the "what happened to him" files: Jason McLeod, former exec chef at Ria, moved back to San Diego, where he's working on the Box Tree Restaurant at La Valencia Hotel. [Grub Street]

WICKER PARK—Hit Bangers & Lace on April 18 between 6 and 8 p.m. for a cheese and beer party. For $16, get four artisan cheeses and four beers and hang with Stone Brewing's Aaron Tyrell and master fromager Colleen Graham. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN—If we could mark the start of the al fresco season, the opening of the Terrace at Trump might be a good date. The 16th floor outdoor expanse overlooking the Chicago River opens on May 18 at 2:30 p.m. It'll now seat 164 people (60 more than last year) and will embrace a new Polynesian chic theme, which apparently has swept the world, just not Chicago. Who knew? [EaterWire]
