Join Chicago's First Arcade Tournament League... at a Discount!

Beercades (that’s “beer arcades,” gentle reader) are popping up all over Chicago.  Emporium and Headquarters are opening second locations.  I just visited Replay for the first time.  They’re all a blast, but I’m admittedly easy to please.  Beer + video games = My Happy Place.
