Baileys & Lights 2016

December 10, 2016 at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago.


Well Kids, it is that time of year again – when we load up our hot chocolate with Baileys and head to crazy town, otherwise known as the Zoo Lights!

First things, first though, we start out at the Starbucks on the corner of Clark and Dickens (2063 N Clark)

You know, we always end up at a bar after, maybe just one but just to warm up… typically Lion Head Pub, at 2251 N Lincoln (where they can easily accommodate us and we can play darts)… invite your friends… it is fun!

It is a great way to get the holidays rolling before we all have to take off to see family and/or get busy doing other things…

Love to you all and see you soon!
