Countdown to Christmas

Good morning everyone (and Good evening to my readers in Asia and afternoon in Europe)! Happy Tuesday.

 

This past weekend was quite the eventful weekend – I’m trying to soak in all the festivities before friends start leaving the city for the holidays.

 

2 main things that happened –

1. T-Box (Twelve Bars of Xmas) bar crawl on Saturday. An annual bar crawl from 8am-8pm around Wrigleyville. Everyone was dressed in festive wear and I wore a mandatory christmas sweater, unfortunately not an ugly one.

2. Lincoln Park Zoo Lights – breathtaking display of lights around the zoo. I dare say it was the prettiest lights I’ve ever seen in my life. Comparing this to Xmas lights in HK and London, it says a lot. Here are some pictures (that doesn’t really do it justice)…

If you’re in the city for Christmas, this is a must-go. I definitely want to go back and enjoy the lights again, perhaps on a weekday when there are less people. The zoo is free to the public and very close to Lincoln Park and LakeView area if you live around here!

 

Seriously, GO. Alternatively, hit me up, and I’ll go with you 🙂
