What You’ll Do
The weather outside may be frightful, but this holiday trolley is most decidedly not. Climb aboard the Events with Benefitz vintage trolley for a whirlwind trip to some of Chicago’s loveliest holiday spots, taking in the sparkling lights on the Magnificent Mile and wandering through Lincoln Park Zoo’s ZooLights. Throw on your souvenir Santa hat, toast the trolley’s BYOB status, and take in the sights.
Start with Chili and Cheer
Meet at Lakeview’s Matilda, where you’ll savor piping hot bowls of chili while admiring the bar’s trademark upside-down Christmas trees hanging merrily from the ceiling. Vegetarian chili will be available.
