Pub crawls are exactly what they sound like, a group of drinkers trying to catch pubs that keep crawling away before they can sit down. Pursue some evening fun with this Groupon.
- $10 for registration for one to "Everyone Gets Lei's" pub crawl on Saturday, August 24 (a $20 value)
Starting at 1 p.m., patrons gather at Fatpour in Wicker Park to start the Hawaiian-themed pub crawl with drinks and free leis. From there, the group—lead by Lei leaders carrying a giant beach ball—make their way through the neighborhood stopping at bars such as Inn Joy, Division Ale House, and Fifty/50. Throughout the course of the evening, guests are encouraged to collect leis before the event concludes at Shambles. Those that collect 9+ leis and send Festa Parties a picture of themselves with the leis will be entered in a drawing for prizes.
Each registered guest receives an admission badge, lanyard, and a "Everyone Gets Lei's" t-shirt or gym bag. Drink specials will also be available during the event. See the event page for more details.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
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. Most recently, the event company donated $75,000 and more than 1,400 boxes of cereal to the Lakeview Food Pantry.
