EARLY CASUALTIES: TBOX Revelers Begin To Stray From The Pack

Some of the early-arriving TBOX bar crawl participants have begun to feel the effects:

1:22PM: Officers on patrol cite three for drinking on the public way across from Wrigley Field, 1027 W. Addison.

1:34PM: Resident at 12XX W. Cornelia says an intoxicated white man dressed as Santa Claus keeps banging on her door. He's mumbling something and she can't understand what he's saying. Police move him along.

1:42PM: Resident at Grace and Southport finds a "very high" white female wearing a red hat and black dress lying in his yard. Officers find the incapacitated woman at Byron and Clark. She is hauled away by ambulance since the officer doesn't "know what else to do with" the resident of southwest suburban Woodridge.

2:19PM: The 19th district Tactical Team lieutenant calls for a police paddy wagon to come to Clark Street south of Addison. TBOX's first two arrests are made outside of Moe's Cantina.

Since things are heating up (or melting down, as the case may be) CWB will withhold further TBOX updates until the event winds down late tonight.

  2. I’m looking out my window at Cornelia and Seminary and I am seeing many more Xmas zombies stumbling around than last year and it is only 4 o’clock. It is rather sad

    1. I see the revelers too for all of these holidays. Not a big deal. Good business for local bars.

  3. Tbox doesn't affect me - these are NOT the kids strong arming us at night.

    2. Good point. Kinda like that guy stealing bikes and arrested for weed possession deserves some type of accolades.

    3. ^^ Not sure what that is supposed to mean but Mr. Brandis deserves to be behind bars; he was a menace to the community.

  4. Really, I'm no prude but I just don't see the fun in all day drinking starting at 8am. Frankly, I'd be embarrassed to be seen participating in this and if I were an employer and saw one of my workers in a picture out there, I might have a different opinion of them.

    1. I agree. It doesn't seem fun. 3 hours maximum for me. I'm a prude now. If I were in my mid-20s and single....eh, perhaps.

    2. Day drinking in your 20s can be a fun thing.

    3. Ahhhh, the joy of daytime drinking....

      I do agree that I'm too old to participate in this event....but were I in my 20's....hell yeah!

    4. This is morning drinking....starting at 8am though. ....it's not like they're having a Bloody Mary with their brunch.

  5. I'd much prefer drunks roaming around Clark Street vs. thugs roaming around all of Boystown ready to strike us with their fists and guns. Makes me wonder if that one nitwit is running around Clark Street today campaigning for his dry district lol.

    1. The drunks roaming around on Clark street are taking away valuable police resources from the whole district, uh nitwit.

    2. The area just attracts trouble be it vomit or guns. I've read it was even worse in the past but the gays moved in and "cleaned it up". I'm gay and disagree. Lipstick on a pig is still just lipstick on a pig......and even a broken clock is right twice a day.

  6. I live on Clark/School, don't get me wrong because it was another shitshow, but not as bad this year in this area. I think the Xmas trees on the sidewalks provided a safe haven for relieving themselves, which is an upgrade to my front door!

    1. I agree, this year was not as bad as in the past. More security was definitely present and maybe the snow played a role. But as I type it is only 10:45 and all the fun is about to start. And of course, TBOX has ended and has no responsibility for whatever happens later.

    2. What do you mean whatever happens later? I doubt these revelers are causing many problems.

  7. Apparently there is no better way to celebrate the birth of Christ than going out on Clark street dressed up as a whorish elf and getting blasted out of your mind…
