Festa Parties Incorporated
Christopher “Mister Festa” Festa is the originator of the 12 Bars of Xmas and President of TBOX Bar Crawls. Mr. Festa grew up in the small town of Vero Beach, Florida, then attended Stanford University, majoring in Economics. He worked briefly in the finance industry before joining global consulting firm Accenture (then known as Andersen Consulting) as a Management Consultant. Fortuitously, his third major assignment took him from the Miami office to a permanent transfer to headquarters in Chicago… where he had never seen SO MANY BARS EVERYWHERE, on every block, on every corner, and he wanted to go to every one of them! Chris began having quarterly pub crawls for his co-workers and friends, and in 1996, had his first “12 Bars of Xmas”. The rest is history, and you can see it all here.
Chris since became a true Midwesterner and Chicagoan, a die-hard Cubs fan, and he personally attends and leads every TBOX Bar Crawl event and fully participates just like his customers! He has no plans to EVER skip one of his own pub crawls! Make sure to find him and ask for his personal sticker when you attend a TBOX event.
