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.

Eggnog is lucky that fruitcake exists, otherwise it certainly would be the butt of more holiday jokes. Cartons of the thick, overly sugary stuff have convinced many people that eggs belong nowhere near their cocktails--and that's too bad. Plenty of the city's top bartenders are reaching for eggs this winter to add texture and balance to spiced and cold weather-appropriate drinks. Once shaken (this is where the term "vigorously" really applies), the eggs become light, frothy and just the right complement to spirits of all sorts.

Star Wars fans are known for being passionate folks. But if you ask me, they should also be known for how charitable they can be. Some of the most passionate - and charitable - Star Wars fans you'll ever meet are members of the 501st Midwest Garrison , a costuming group that makes public appearances for charity, dressed as characters from the Star Wars movies. They've made appearances at children's hospitals, fundraisers and sporting events. This week, you'll be able to catch Darth Vader and his Imperial Stormtroopers at North Avenue Beach when they join the American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK)

Time to stock up? Beginning Monday, some Dominick's stores will be selling liquor for 30 percent off, ahead of planned closures of the grocery chain in the area. A call to the Dominick's at Sheffield and Fullerton and Lincoln Park confirmed the sale, which began when city liquor sales started at 7 a.m. If last week's sales-- which offered 50 percent off many items in the store --were any indication, lines will be long. Only stores that have not been purchased by Mariano's or Jewel and will be closing have the sale, so it's a good idea to call ahead.  Want more?

Stella Barra 1954 N. Halsted St. 773-634-4101 Rating: !!! 1/2 (out of 4) Push . I've heard a lot of great chefs say it. Push through the pain. Push forward. Push past your limits. Nothing is impossible if you push. The difference between the successful chef and the pedestrian line cook, or so it appears, is returning a force just a little harder than the force that comes at you, aka pushing. "Push" is also what's tattooed on the right wrist of Jeff Mahin, the executive chef partner behind Stella Barra, a new pizzeria in Lincoln Park.

  Hey, hey! What day is it? Yeah, it's already Hump Day Wednesday. Mark the weekly occasion by brushing up on Chicago's resident Bactrian camels captured above eating flowers on Mother's Day this year at Lincoln Park Zoo .  A quick rundown from the zoo's fact sheet:  Bactrian camels are an endangered species, can reach 7-feet tall and 1,500 pounds. Both the male and female of the species have two humps, and can be found throughout China and Mongolia. Right now, the camels should be well into growing their winter coats.  Want more?
