Top Reasons to Come to TBOX - 1 - 12 Bars of Xmas, Chicago Christmas Crawl, Wrigleyville Pub Crawl, Chicago Events - TBOX2021, TBOX2022, TBOX2023


Founder Christopher Festa pretty much invented bar crawls as an organized party event (Starting in 1996) – and any other pub crawls you see out there started because of TBOX! It’s a business, but we have TBOX every year for our sheer love of pub crawling and bringing joy to thousands of people.

# 10 – TBOX is Wrigleyville!

Long before the Cubs Won it All, before Wrigley was redeveloped, before it became one of THE Nightlife Hotspots of Chicago, TBOX was Here! We started in ’96 (in Lincoln Park) and moved to Wrigley in ’99 — and have had TBOX the 2nd Saturday of December Every Year. We’re proud to support the neighborhood and Chicago’s Best Bars!
