TBOX / T-BOX / Twelve Bars of Christmas, Chicago Xmas Pub Crawl - Festa Parties

#1 – TBOX is The ORIGINAL

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.

#3 – TBOX is a Great Deal!

When you think about how much you can spend going to a sports or concert event, TBOX is an awesome deal. And you get to PARTICIPATE, not just watch! (that’s what she said)

#7 – TBOX is Full of Love!

Over 100 Couples who met at TBOX have gotten married over the last 20 years. You don’t have to be single to attend, but if you’re looking for a Long (or Short!!) Term relationship, EVERYBODY is in a Loving, Friendly Mood at TBOX. Before there was Tinder, TBOX has been the real thing for finding romance.

#8 – TBOX is Unique!

TBOX is all about having a Unique, Creative One-Day Journey through Wrigleyville, and is NOT focused just on drinking. We provide as much entertainment as we can throughout the day… Cereal Shots… Over 2 Million Stickers to Collect… Scavenger Hunts to Win Prizes… Elaborate Opening & Closing Ceremonies… and Yearly THEMES to keep things fresh every year (2021 is Back to the 90s!!!)  No other crawl puts so much into creating such a Compelling Entertainment Experience… it’s what Festa Does!

#9 – TBOX is for Friends!

There’s no better event in Chicago or anywhere to bring your whole squad and have a One-Day Adventure you’ll NEVER FORGET!  And these days, what does anyone want more than to be out having fun with friends?!  Cherish the good times, make it an annual bucket list event!

# 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!

# 11 – TBOX is the Party of the Year in Chicago

Though Others Have Attempted, No One Can Truly Recreate the Magic and Glory that is TBOX! TBOX is so Much More than an Excuse to Party with Your Friends! TBOX offers a truly Unmatched Experience!  Our philosophy is not to just throw out a million events, but to have a few fantastic, epic, memorable blowouts!
