FREEBIE OF THE WEEK
for the partiers Free Rides
No matter which category above you choose, we respectfully recommend tacking on what may be the best freebie yet: a safe ride home. Courtesy of Miller Lite, revelers can hop on and off a shuttle service running every 20 to 25 minutes on a continuous circuit between Wrigleyville, Lincoln Park, Old Town, River North, the Loop, and points beyond. Happy New Year, everyone.
