If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary from how people usually celebrate the holidays, Chicago Detours’ is offering a creative, new angle on festive walking tours in downtown Chicago.
A Holiday Tour of Drinks, Daleys and Dead Guys is an unusual new holiday tour that not only stays indoors for most of its run, but includes classic, unusual and off-the-beaten path sites and stories.
Patrons will discover a unique look into Chicago’s history of holiday fun and follies. For example, you’ll hear about how Mayor Richard J. Daley saved the Christmas Parade and how his son, Richard M., was almost given a stocking of coal for his affront to Christmas and Hanukkah.
The tour will be hosted and guided by Amanda Scotese, the founder and executive director of Chicago Detours. Guests will receive a hot Tom and Jerry cocktail at historic Miller’s Pub and a second drink, a choice of wine or beer, while gazing at the holiday tree at the former Marshall Field’s Department store.
A Holiday Tour of Drinks, Daleys and Dead Guys is sure to sell out so buy your tickets soon and make this holiday season even more memorable!
