A play that showcases real-life CTA stories will celebrate its 100th consecutive Saturday show this weekend. "El Stories," a reenactment of interviews with CTA riders, has been performed every Saturday at the Greenhouse Theater in Lincoln Park since March 2012, play spokesman J.D. Ostergaard said. The show was performed several times before then, but not with the consistency it sees now. There have been nearly 150 total performances of the play, which rotates stories every few months.

Let the games begin. Even if the most physical activity you got this winter was lifting a copy of Suzanne Collins'"The Hunger Games" or walking to your car to see the movie, the odds still are in your favor to get active come summer. That is, if you start your training now. The book trilogy and blockbuster movie - in which teenage "tributes" from one of 12 districts in a dystopian future battle to the death in an unpredictable arena - already has inspired a growing interest in archery, with heroine Katniss Everdeen being a master markswoman with a bow. But fitness enthusiasts from around the city say there are more than just arrows and a bull's-eye awaiting those who want to kick start their summer workouts like their lives depend on it. For Bikram Yoga Chicago owner John Marcoux, the 105-degree, full-humidity yoga classes his Wicker Park, Lincoln Park and South Loop studios offer mimic the extreme conditions not unlike those in the at-times fiery "Hunger Games" arena.

All it takes is a 2 a.m. visit to a strip on Hubbard, Clark, Halsted or Milwaukee to know exactly how Chicago drinks: hard. The city has a documented reputation. Nearly 20 percent of adults age 18 or older in Chicago have engaged in binge drinking in the previous month, according to a report last year from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And while the state isn't currently No. 1 in overdoing it -- that classification goes to Wisconsin -- the Land of Lincoln does come in at No. 5 in the Centers' nationwide rankings.

Brian Galati--who also runs Uncle Fatty's Rum Resort in Lincoln Park - plans to open Headquarters (950 W. Wolfram St., 773-665-5660), a new arcade-themed bar Thursday night. The Lakeview “beercade” will feature a minimum of 37 games. A majority will be upright consoles, while a few tabletop games you can play while seated will also be available. Retro faves such as Centipede, Donkey Kong, Tetris and NBA Jam are all to be expected. All games will cost 25 cents, but if you cashed in all your coins to do laundry or feed the parking meter, don't worry: There are plans for a change machine to dispense quarters.
