What we're about

With the desire to provide more unique, personal rec league experiences that focus on meeting new people as much as the sports themselves, S3 Leagues were first created in Summer '09 and have now seen tens of thousands of players.

While of course winning is always ohhh so sweet, we definitely have as much fun at our post-game bars as at the games themselves. We're more about simply having a good time than practicing to go pro.

So if you're looking for a unique social league, where it's ridiculously easy to make friends, have fun being active and also like the idea of playing on a team with others your age in a huge league with lots of people to meet, S3 has got cha covered.

--------------

You can join:

By yourself and be put on a team with others your age

With friends and have us fill your team with some cool new people

As a full team

Read the Ultimate S3 Testimonial:

"Since you asked...here's what's on my mind. 1) Stop making me have so much fun EVERY weekend. 2) Why in the hell are you giving me beer after the game? I mean, what kind of joke is that? 3) Stop making me make new friends. I wanna be loner. 4) Stop making me play with girls. Ughhh. women. 5) Why is the field so far from the bar. It's just awful. I have a 100 foot radius. Thank you. 6) I gotta go back to all the people at the bar again. Geez, why so many people? I'm on overload here. 7) You should really make people sign a waiver saying their social calender is gonna be filled with new friends and S3 events. Gosh, if I knew what I was getting into, I never would have signed up! 8) Can you tell I'm being completely sarcastic? And that EVERY one of these points is something I love about S3? :) Truth be told, this really has been the best decision of my summer and I don't want this season to end. I'll be back for next season and whatever crazy fall leagues you come up with! Thanks for everything S3! You really do provide THE BEST leagues in the city. Fact."

$5 First Fridays Stand Up Comedy Shows at Chicago's best venue!

Needs a location

The Laugh Factory in Lakeview (Broadway & Belmont) is open for comedy and we all could use some laughs! We always get A LOT of people to attend these shows. Often times over 100 Meetup members!

If you attend by yourself or with friends and want to be seated in the Meetup group section, simply request this when you check in at the ticket booth! Then just say hi to those around you :)

Every First Friday of the month we get $5 TICKETS to their shows at 7:30, 9:30 & 11:30 pm. They're ALWAYS hilarious!

***

Get your $5 tickets ASAP before the quantity they give us get sells out. And with our "laugh or get a refund" policy (that has never in 4 years been requested), I know you'll enjoy your MUCH NEEDED night out! This event is posted in lots of different Meetup groups, so the RSVP # won't show how many are actually attending.

*You can purchase tickets for several people and multiple shows this night through the link. No physical tickets will be issued. Your name will be on a list at the door and all tickets will be under the purchaser's name. Groups of up to 6 people can be sat together if arriving together.

Please Note: These shows are for ages 18+ w/ ID. If you show up after start time you will not be able to enter. There is a 2 drink minimum per person per show (non-alcoholic or alcoholic). Drinks are reasonably priced, and a comedy show is funnier with a few drinks, so this shouldn't be an issue with how cheap our tickets are :) Also, an 18% service fee (aka gratuity) will be applied to all drink tabs at payment to be given directly to service staff.

No refunds or exchanges but tickets can be transferred.

Here are the show descriptions:

7:30 PM - Drink, Date, Laugh! This hilarious show is a one-of-a-kind stand-up comedy showcase/game show at the Chicago Laugh Factory that engages the audience by exploring their dating history and love lives. Short questionnaires are given out before the show (all in good fun) that the team uses to briefly interview selected crowd members (seriously, all in good fun). At the end of the show, three lucky audience members are picked to participate in a live game show to win a $50 gift certificate to a local spot. On top of all that, the show features stand-up sets from some of the best comedians in Chicago.

9:30 PM - Young Hustle Show! This is a Stand-Up Comedy show comprised of the best comedians in Chicago as well as comedians from Comedy Central, HBO and Conan. Every show leaves people coming back for more.

11:30 PM - Low Key Funny Friday Night Variety Show! This monthly show will shine light on some of Chicago's emerging talent in stand-up, improv/ sketch comedy, and up and coming music artists. Break away from the basic format of comedy shows and experience a vibe of music, sketch, and lowkey still crack up all night!

***

Is there parking? Street parking and some garages are available throughout the area. However, public transit, ridesharing apps, and taxi services are highly encouraged.

What is the dress code? There is no dress code. Be comfortable!
