WhirlyBall, a made-up sport that is played by two teams driving bumper cars, combines elements of lacrosse, hockey and basketball. Needless to say, it's a ton of fun after you've had a few drinks. The new WhirlyBall location in Bucktown doubles the size of its previous facility, adding 12 bowling lanes and a new laser tag arena, in addition to three WhirlyBall courts. Fuel up for an evening of fun at the revamped bar, which features food, a full cocktail menu and rotating selection of craft beers.

WhirlyBall is even more fun than you imagine. The games get competitive but then everyone hangs out between/after the games. When you're done with WhirlyBall, if you have enough energy, you can go bowling as well. The food and drink options are plentiful and delicous.

There is something for everyone and I recommend going with a big group to get the most out of the experience.
