DEPAUL— Duck Walk, the popular Thai restaurant at 1217 W. Fullerton, has closed. The phone's disconnected, and customers reported the shutter two weeks ago on the restaurant's Facebook page. [EaterWire]

EDGEWATER— Another dive bar bit the dust last month when Edgewater Lounge called it quits. The city had cited the bar for a barrage of violations, and the owners grew tired of running the establishment at 5600 N. Ashland. [DNAinfo]
