I guess we could add foosball if you insist

Good, I needed an excuse to bring my pool cue(s) to Chicago.

I seriously vote arcade competition. We can have mini tournaments on a bunch of games and overall placement determines draft order.

We can do simple stuff like total score on 1 quarter per game. Fighting games we could do an actual tournament. Racing games could be the same.

In case you weren't ITT when we were talking about it, this place has all oldschool games (i.e. Simpsons, X-Men, Rampage) and beer... it should be badass.


what is this magical place?

Its buried ITT somewhere but I'm at work... I'm sure the locals know what I'm talking about though. M458 linked their website earlier.


Emporium in Wicker Park. They actually had a Groupon for cheaper drinks/tokens a couple weeks ago; I'll check to see if they still have it going on.

Danke M458

Which site do you guys want to use btw? I've used Yahoo and NFL.com personally. I know most people are familiar with yahoo, so if we want to just do that I'm cool with it.

Here you go: http://www.groupon.com/deals/emporium-arcade-bar

Deal's not valid on Friday or Saturday nights though (I doubt you want to do your draft then anyways). 1 token = 25 cents = 1 play. http://emporiumchicago.com/games/

There's also headquarters, where the games are free. But unless "crawling with bros" is your scene, I will recommend emporium.

Bros tend to be more well bathed than hipsters though, that might actually be better.
ETA: while the game list at headquarters is very impressive, I think emporium still has the edge. Simpsons + Golden Ax is huge.

But louder and slimier and ten times more likey to make creepy comments about girls kicking ass at games involving joysticks.

I could see creepy comments outweighing the benefits of proper bathing. Personally I am not often the victim of creepy comments though.

Competition idea: whoever can write the most believable story proving Aaron Hernandez' innocence in less than 500 words. Bonus points if you include some dialogue between Hernandez and Lloyd.

Just wait till the end of our orientation. I'll point the obvious ones out. It's my favorite thing to do.

Draft order should be decided by an SSB (original) competition.

Am I missing something w/ sending in health information about shots, medical records, etc.? It's not in my to-do list.

Headquarters just expanded. I'd go there if I was you guys. Too bad I'm no longer a law student and can't be in your league. Ah for the good ol days....
