If fans of ABC's "Revenge" feel like making a drinking game out of watching the soapy series, they now have a drink of choice: the Black Dahlia. In Wednesday's episode, "Treachery," the real Emily Thorne--I'll call her Amanda (Margarita Levieva) to make things easier--mixed up a few Black Dahlias for herself and bar hunk Jack (Nick Wechsler). I looked around the web for the drink and found many versions of it. But not the "Revenge" version. So here's the recipe as Amanda said it: BLACK DAHLIA 3 ounces of vodka 1 ounce Creme de cassis "A little"...

With Fox's "New Girl" returning its third season, star and Chicago native Lamorne Morris recently visited RedEye to talk about the show and what's in store for Winston, Jess, Nick and Schmidt. More importantly, Morris talked about the origins of the drinking game True American, which the show's characters introduced to fans in Season 1. In the game, players must stand on chairs, tables, countertops or anything that keeps them off the floor, which has become molten lava. Through a series of commands, shouts, trivia or whatever else players invent, they move around...

The Blackhawks start the next round of their Stanley Cup journey this week in the Western Conference semifinals. In the meantime, you should prepare for the official RedEye Sports Chicago Blackhawks WCSF Drinking Game, or RESCBWCSFDG for somewhat-short. When buying your booze, please reach for a Wirtz Beverage-distributed brand, so you can help defray Rostislav Olesz's $3 million-plus salary in Rockford. And if you need an excuse to show up hung over at work the next morning, cut this article out and show to your supervisor.

It's an unwritten rule of the web: If it's new and hyper-addictive, a drinking game must be made. Vine, Twitter's app that allows users to shoot six-second video s and Tweet them, is entertaining on its own. There's six-second cat videos, six-second stop-motion “look how fast I ate my soup” videos and six-second “I'm trying out Vine for the first time and will never use it again” videos. After about a week, the service has already seen big names like Sir Paul McCartney, the Brooklyn Nets and Tyra Banks join in with thousands of others trying the...

A drinking game becomes a lot more intense when the red queen is literally holding a heart. That's what Blaise Sewell thinks, and now he has a fully funded Kickstarter campaign to prove it. “Zombie Shuffle,” a 52-card deck with its own set of rules, surpassed its goal on the crowd-funding site this week, and now Sewell hopes the game will become as popular as any other card game that's played at parties. “I hope the future of Zombie Shuffle is that everyone knows the rules,” he said, adding that the game's rules can be adapted...

Displays of united patriotism are few in bars these days. Instead, we spend most of our time yelling at one another over whose alma mater reigns for the night. But those in need of a hearty "USA!" pub chant are in luck - never is toasting the accomplishments of ripped 17-year-olds more accepted than at a pub during the Olympics. Even if you're not a Games addict, it's hard not to get swept up in the cheers as an American-flag-festooned swim cap breaks away from the pack. And if you're going to be spending the next week staring at screens with a...

What happens when gamers play under the influence? Avid gamer and beer connoisseur Jared Hoffa is mixing the two to create a live-streaming competitive game show called GUI . "It's taking something that sounds ridiculous and turning it into a seriously entertaining game show," said Hoffa, 27, a TV producer who lives in Lakeview. He got the idea a year ago after seeing how popular streaming video-game shows online was in places like South Korea. So he took that concept and added a twist: beer.

This past weekend marked a big step for my close group of friends: We're turning 25. Not all at once. Slowly. But it's started, and I'm next. We've landed somewhere between trays of 25-cent draws at sticky college hangouts and $25 bottles of wine on our Scotchgarded couches. The rules have shifted slightly, whether I want them to or not, and the thought of being "too old" is starting to have some heft behind it. Some. Closer to 21 than 30, most things stay the same. The mornings-after just start to slowly ache a little more.
