TBOX Opening & Closing Ceremonies and Going “Wire to Wire”

Since 2007, TBOX starts & ends w/ Opening and Closing Ceremonies (just like the OLYMPICS!) at Cubby Bear.  Opening Ceremonies are one of the most fun, exciting, high-energy parts of the TBOX experience – and a chance for the fipeople who show up early to all be together before we disperse among Wrigleyville.   All TBOX VIPs and Royal Court members are there, you have the chance to get the MOST STICKERS, the MOST CEREAL, there’s music, entertainment, official photographers, and it’s an amazing kickoff for a long day of partying.

And… We Love People at TBOX to Go “WIRE TO WIRE” – that means ALL THE WAY – from beginning to end.  If you make it to the Opening, go to 12 Bars, and make it back to Cubby, you’ve officially gone Wire to Wire!  Check updates for the official game or scavenger hunt we’ll have to show you did this for the upcoming TBOX to win prizes.  See below for some pix from our Ceremonies and people who went all the way at TBOX!
