Gross. I've never been to an arcade bar. I hear there's one in DC somewhere, but Metro is so awful that I rarely bother going out. If the on in Chicago has the 8-player X-Men game, though, I'm in.

I've recently gotten word about a bar with batting cages. Officially counting the days till I return to the glorious land that is the midwest.

Easily the greatest arcade game of all time. The simpsons arcade game is obviously a close second though.

There are quite a few current 1Ls that go to a bar up in Old Town for pub trivia if you want to be around other NU people, and there are several other bars in the area that do trivia as well if you don't.

Love pub quizzes, and so does my wife. We're totally down for this.

Also, arcade bar sounds amazing. Do they have gauntlet legends???

Bro, bro, seriously... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gauntlet_% ... eo_game%29

Golden Axe is still totally legit. The guy's name is "Ax Battler." Co-op Sega games were a pretty integral part of my summers in elementary school.
