Clang, clang, clang went the trolley (party!)


Many of my Chicago friends have summer birthdays, which make for fun birthday parties. My friend Evelyn just celebrated hers with a Trolley Party! If you’re not from the Midwest, you may have never heard of this concept before – at least I hadn’t. But everyone assured me it would be a blast, and it certainly lived up to the hype!

We all convened at Ev & Chris’ place where our chariot awaited us. The trolley then chauffeured us around beautiful downtown Chicago for three hours, while we celebrated onboard!



Our resident party planner, Maria, organized a fun photo challenge, which really livened things up. Some of the photo challenge terms were “sword fight,” “pyramid,” “shots with the birthday girl,” and “ride the trolley.” Can you guess which one is which?



With these gems, it should be no surprise that our team won!

I was in charge of the playlist. Obvi! In honor of Ev and songs from our youth, a compilation of 80’s and 90’s hits. Have you ever seen a trolley full of adults singing and dancing their hearts out? I can only imagine it was as awesome as we thought it was!


Like every fun time, it all flew by way too fast and we ended our three-hour-tour at Jake Melnick’s to close out the night and recap some of the evening’s shenanigans.


Happy Birthday Evelyn!
