Since its renovation in 1995, the Reynolds Club, on the corner of 57th Street and University Avenue, has increased its stature as a place where students can grab some food, kick back, chat with friends, and generally put academics out of their minds for a while. If you're thinking that sounds rather un-Chicago, then you should take a look for yourself.

The student-run Reynolds Club Coffee Shop on the second floor (in the former CAPS office) maintains a 24-hour Webcam on which viewers can watch students-gasp-socialize.

The café serves tea, coffee, soda, and candy, and a number of Hyde Park restaurants deliver meals for lunch each weekday. If watching people eat is not entertaining enough, the real-time Webcam offers an excellent view of pool and foosball games in progress, and quite a bit of shuffling about goes on at 5:30 p.m. That's when The Simpsons begins on the two television sets, and the counter lowers its prices for Simpsons Happy Hour.

Too much to see Chicago students taking a break? Then tune in after 2 a.m. when the shop is closed and there's nothing to do but study, study, study.
