Between the abundance of bars, restaurants, social events and stores, seldom do entertainment seekers opt for the volunteer or community service avenue.   One of those people is not Lindsay Payleitner, a Chicagoan who has combined her backgrounds in volunteering and sewing to create a bi-weekly community sewing class through her business The Sewing Maniac. "I think that people want to give back," Payleitner said.

Chicago's event has been held for more than five years. More than 285 people signed up on Facebook to participate, as of Tuesday afternoon. More than 200 CTA riders took the Red Line last year sans pants, according to news reports.
