Instructions on Going Wire-to-Wire at TBOX2014… and WINNING FREE BeadQuest 2015 Tickets & Other Prizes

At TBOX, we love when people go all the way, baby… WIRE TO WIRE!!!  This year, with our new TBOX APP, we’ve made a fun way for you to complete your mission of going to 12 Bars at the Twelve Bars of Xmas, recording your progress, and winning prizes while you make memories. Here’s what you need to do to go “Wire To Wire, Baby!!!

First, Download The TBOX APP which Lists Every Venue with Location, Directions, Description, Facebook Page, Everything. Go ahead, do it!

Next, Note that the 50 TBOX Venues at the TBOX 2014 ZOO are divided up into FOUR ZONES – Tiger, Zebra, Giraffe, and Jaguar — THE MAP IS HERE (and on the App) — and in each bar, we’ll have our Charity and Partner Bar Hosts who will help you TAKE A PICTURE in the TBOX FRAME for that bar, and give you the special sticker for that bar!

TBOX 2014 Map

You need to get your picture in THREE BARS in each of the FOUR ZONES, which totals TWELVE BARS!!!  Make sure to check out the many bars that are NORTH OF ADDISON STREET and SOUTH OF NEWPORT!  The middle of Clark Street gets very crowded, so make sure to enjoy bars from each of the regions so you can avoid standing in lines!

Then, on the “TBOX WALL” section of the APP, Upload your 12 Frame Photos!!!  If you don’t have time to do it during TBOX, or forget, you will have 10 DAYS AFTER TBOX to submit the photos to us.


We will then give everyone that goes Wire to Wire a FREE TICKET to BEADQUEST 2015, Our Mardi Gras Pub Crawl, on February 21, 2015, and put you in a raffle for the dozens of gift certificates we’re getting from the Wrigley Bars.

Excitement Builds for BeadQuest 2014 Mardi Gras Pub Crawl in Wrigleyville, Chicago

On Saturday, February 22, Beads of all colours will rain down on Wrigleyville as Festa Parties presents its 6th Annual BEADQUEST Bead-Collecting Mardi Gras Pub Crawl, starting at Noon at Murphy’s Bleachers, across from World-Famous Wrigley Field. Since its founding in 2009, BeadQuest has quickly become Chicago’s Premier Mardi Gras celebration, providing an energizing jolt of mid-winter excitement for Chicago’s party people. From the producers of the TBOX Twelve Bars of Xmas event that rocks Chicago every year, BeadQuest is a festive celebration of Purple, Gold, and Green, with the object to collect all Numbered Beads 1 thru 9 that are tossed out every hour across 20 Wrigley Venues. This, in addition to tens of thousands of fun throw beads, and crawlers dressed in festive attire, makes BeadQuest a can’t-miss event for fun-loving Chicagoans and visitors.

BeadQuest will begin at Murphy’s Bleachers, and including the following popular Wrigley venues: Old Crow, Cubby Bear, Sluggers, Stretch, Exedus II, Rebel, Rockwood, Bar Celona, Full Shilling, Rockit Burger Bar, Yak-Zie’s, Bernie’s, Mullens, Dugout, Moe’s Cantina, John Barleycorn, Red Ivy, Deuce’s & Diamond, and Flaco’s Tacos.  Back at Murphy’s Bleachers will feature a Karaoke party and official photographing of people that finish the event, in the famous Festa Frames!

In keeping with its tradition of philanthropy and giving, Festa Parties donated $75,000 this past December to the Lakeview Pantry from the 2013 TBOX event, and each month in 2013 hosted Cereal Donation parties that contributed more than 1,400 boxes of Cereal to the pantry. Also, since TBOX2010, Festa Parties has sponsored and participated in The Chicago Dance Marathon benefiting Lurie Children’s Hospital, and in 2013, won the prize for Top Fundraising team, with over $26,000!  This year, we will have a team of 8 AMAZING DANCERS from the TBOX Royal Court, who aim to top last year’s total!

At BeadQuest, we will be hosting the volunteers from the Chicago Dance Marathon, and Festa has donated some special blinking; lightup EYE OF THE TIGER beads which will be sold with 100% of proceeds going to the Dance Marathon Team.  Also, CDM volunteers will host “Second Chance” tables where participants can make a small donation to get the beads they may have missed earlier in the day!  And, for a further donation, any of our Dancers will give you the dance of your choice for 30 seconds during the Day of BeadQuest!
