What Happens When You Trolley Bar Crawl

oh yes, trolley bar crawls are a thing in chicago.  you rent a trolley to drive you from bar to bar and you can load it up with all the booze you want and pretty much do whatever you want while on said trolley.  it's kind of a disaster and that's kind of why i love it.  so this past weekend, kelli threw her boyfriend ryan a surprise 30th birthday.  complete with shutter shades and t-shirts with his face on them.


so we surprised that kid at the first bar in our matching shirts and proceeded to load onto the trolley, which kelli and her parents (and ryan's parents) had already stocked with booze.


and said trolley drove us around for a bit while everyone consumed slightly too much alcohol - but free?  um, yeah.  and yes, there's betsy!  and that gem next to us?  that would be her husband, kevin, with her purse.


and oh yes, there were jello shots!  the most intensely alcoholic jello shots of all time.  i don't even know how they solidified, it was so much booze.  and they were topped with alcoholic whipped cream.  hence the fab shots of betsy.


we unloaded at a bar called headquarters beercade, where we proceeded to eat tacos kelli had catered and consume way more beer than humanly necessary.  but i look fantastic in pink shutter shades so that made everything ok.

success.

and the best part is, i have another trolley bar crawl this saturday for my friend caitlin's birthday!  the fun just never ends.

  12. I am so jealous your hair still look amazing after an evening of trolley crawl. After 1 glass of wine, my hair gets frizzy & sticks everywhere. Which is why I have very few drinking pics.
