RIVER NORTH—Taps for Tap, a monthly series featuring kegged cocktail recipes by notable mixologists for charity, begins tonight. This month's is called coctel iberia (whiskey, sherry, pimento bitters) and is designed by Dale DeGroff, a James Beard-award winner and founder of the Museum of the American Cocktail. [EaterWire]

WRIGLEYVILLE—After 28 years of slinging burritos to Cubs fans and bar-hoppers, El Jardin on Clark Street shuttered on New Year's Day. What bar or lounge is coming next? [Twitter]

GOLD COAST—Did you know Elvis' birthday is Tuesday? Well it is, and if you dress up like The King, you'll get a free king cupcake at Sprinkles. That's banana cake with peanut butter frosting. [EaterWire]

GOLD COAST—Italian and southern truffles may have never come together like this. At Spiagga January 17, Tony Mantuano's tuscan truffles and Blackberry Farm's Tennessean truffles join forces for a six-course wine-paired dinner to benefit the James Beard Foundation. It's $200 for non-members. [EaterWire]
