Time Out says

For one day each December, the 12 Bars of Xmas pub crawl (better known as TBOX) takes over Wrigleyville, bringing the drunken debauchery of the summer months into the holiday season. More than 30 bars throughout the neighborhood participate in the booze-soaked revelry, as participants in festive garb take advantage of drink specials while indulging in traditions like "cereal shots" and sticker exchanges. Since the event started in 1996, the theme of this year's crawl is "Back to the 90s," which means you can expect plenty of references to Nirvana, Friends, Blockbuster, Spice Girls and other standbys from that decade.
