- $12 for general admission for one ($22 value)
On Saturday, May 9, the Cover Your Bases bar crawl gets you into 12 bars, one T-shirt, and admission to the afterparty. Crawlers can participate in a scavenger hunt or a series of competitions at each bar which will place the fans of various rival baseball teams against each other. The crawl kicks off at noon, circling Wrigley Field and ends at 9 p.m. with karaoke and is produced by Festa Parties. Participants can pick up their t-shirt any night of the week leading up to the event at Murphy’s Bleachers.
The team known as Festa Parties produces many themed pub crawls each year. Events include the well known Christmas themed TBOX, Mardi Gras-themed BeadQuest and the baseball-themed Cover Your Bases. And the brains behind these quirky and interactive crawls is owner Christopher Festa, who aims to help locals have a memorable night out while simultaneously giving back to Chicago. Over the past six years, Festa Parties has donated over $230,000 and more than thousands of boxes of cereal.
