    Wrigleyville hasn't been hip since the late '80s. Which, coincidentally, is when I lived there.

    Why the fuck do they need a Best Buy there? There is one literally one mile south on Clark. CVS, Dominick's, really? I don't think there is a need for those, either. I'm fine with gutting what is there and building the hotel but they should really try to keep bar and restaurant tenants on the street level. No need for retail there.

    This is retarded.

    This Alderman is an idiot. That said I pray for the day the Cubs tell the City of Chicago to fuck off and build a 50,000 seat stadium in the NW burbs.

    It's not that those things are going to be there that irks me, it's more that they are booting local businesses. And while I don't go to any of the establishments (Goose Island, Red Ivy, Salt and Pepper, Br Louie), it pisses me off that they are getting bumped. Why not tear down that McDoanlds and put them in the new development, that whole west side of Clark is basically empty.

    Whatever happened to their plans of building that big building at the corner of Clark and Waveland that was to house a Cubs museum and a Harry Caray's?

    Harry Caray's is now where the old Hi-Tops is which is now where the Gin Mill was

    They should build an Olive Garden on top of Wrigley FIeld. So you can enjoy the finest Italian eats while being pirched above your favorite sports team ever, The Cubbies!!!! 7th inning stretch everyone gets a free order of rubbery calamari appetizer.

    I would care about this in most places but not here. Wrigleyville sucks. Let it suck a little more.

    Why would they put a best buy in when there's one about a mile south, just south of Diversey? Dumb.

    I was out running around 3 this afternoon, and hit Clark at Belmont and headed north, only to be greeted with the Chad-bro-fest to beat all Chad-bro-fests -- block upon block of 20-somethings wearing ugly Xmas sweaters, pajamas, costumes, etc., many of them carrying or wearing boxes of sugary cereal, nearly all of them highly intoxicated, doing some sort of massive, massive Wrigleyville bar crawl. Seriously, it was unlike anything I'd ever seen in Wrigleyville...it was thousands of people and dozens of bars involved, from Belmont past Addison.

    The fuck is that shit?

    TBOX.

    The Twelve Bars of Xmas.

    Even this 24 year old virgin was invited to this total brofest. Did not attend, obv. Perhaps I should have... :thinking:

    Something like 43 bars in the Wrigleyville area participate. They're closed to the non-TBOX public from 9 am until 9pm or some shit.

    Shit like this almost makes me glad my knee injury prevents me from long runs or really running at all (as some of you know from the last two football games). Before fall of last year, I would probably have jogged a similar distance south (from West Rogers) and run into this :douchechilling: scenario.

    Of fucking course my sister and her far south burb friends went to this. Whatever the most uncultured, obnoxious, piece of shit things you could do--whether it's go to Halloween balls at hotels, or birthday parties at Rockit--they do it.

    Yeah, there's a couple we know who are these people. Last weekend it was Dave and Buster's for her birthday. In a couple weeks it's fucking Howl at the Moon in the CIT-AY!!!! for his birthday.

    They also only go to Disney World on vacation.

    I'll never understand the need for some people to denigrate others for having a good time simply because it is a popular activity. As long as they enjoy themselves, why all the hate?

    You sound like a bunch of snobby Republican 1 percenters

    Mainly because they're average looking chicks who take thousands of pictures, go to shitty bars, and post 5 hashtags in a FB post. But way to somehow work politics in to it.

    Seriously, there are a lot of people coming off as very pathetic in this thread. Is it jealousy? I don't' know, but it's so f'ing pathetic when Palehosers get down on people just trying to have a good time.

    Went to Howl at the Moon for my buddy from work's birthday back in February. For whatever reason he's obsessed with that joint.

    First couple hours were cool, cuz we had dollar drink coupons and the place was pretty open. Then all the fuckin tourists showed up and my other buddy and I booked it out of there.

    I highly doubt we're going to go up to those people and tell them they should stop, we just think it's really lame and uninspiring. If that's your jam, whatever, I'm still going to make fun of you though.

    And yeah, I'm really jealous I wasn't able to pay $90 to get a 5 drinks and be elbow to asshole at bars I can go to on any given day in Wrigleyville.

    I'm all about getting drunk and fucking around, but the whole costume bar crawl thing with these Ohio transplant complete douchenozzles is taking it several levels beyond what is tolerable.

    That said I'm going to a damn Festivus bar crawl in a few weeks. :shrug:

    There are folks with more imagination than you. Is it okay then if we choose to look down upon and belittle your entertainment decisions?

    I'm joshing you of course, but you get the point

    Yup, that's exactly how it is when I go to the place. After 9pm when the drink specials are over, I'm out of that joint.

    That's fair. Personally, I think it sounds like a fun idea but if its elbow to asshole in every bar then yeah, that really isn't my jam. But a large gathering of people going to several bars during the day = fun time for a lot of people. Deal with it. That's their decision and that's there idea of a good time. I'm closer to 30 than 20 and I saw a lot of people on my Facebook talking about this event.

    Who's not dealing with it? It's fine, just making fun of a bunch of 28-year olds getting on the Metra with a Santa outfit and a box of Cap'n Crunch.
