12 Bars of Xmas: Back to the Minors


It is never too early to start thinking of Christmas...or drinking. So, in order to raise the hype for what shall be another glorious party held by Festa Parties, the 15th anniversary of TBOX is firmly founded in the majesty that has spurned the Christmas pub crawl phenomenon we know around the country today.

What started in Chicago as a fun night between friends has spurned a national pastime. All over the country, cities copy what Chicago established, as the 12 bars of Christmas is popular among all age groups. Christopher Festa mans the event which attracts nearly 10,000 participants. As recently as 2009, Festa was approached by the Guinness Book of World Records as Festa Parties TBOX is the biggest Christmas Pub Crawl gathering in the world.

The essence of TBOX is to walk around Wrigleyville, hitting up participating bars, and getting sloshed. You really can't ask for anything more. But with the massive crowds that attend, the event is less of a party, and more of tsunami of drunken possibilities. Dare you to defy me? Then check it out. It really is the world's largest XMas themed pub crawl.

Don't act like you're not impressed. The event is covered annually by all the Chicago media big wigs including Metromix, and probably the Daily Herald. With regular sponsors including Miller Light and other alcohol pushers, TBOX proves to be force to be reckoned with.
