is a new interactive tour company that launched its Good Times Historic Pub Crawl for corporate groups earlier this year. The tour explores historic ballrooms, jazz clubs, former speakeasies, and dance halls by foot, as guides share information about prohibition in Chicago, the heyday of the Playboy Club, and popular theaters, restaurants, and social clubs of eras past. Supplied iPads show historical photos and provide more information, and the tour includes stops at three historic bars along Michigan Avenue. Tours with eight participants start from $58 per guest; the cost per head decreases to $40 for larger groups. Basic fees include shared use of iPads, tour guides, beer, wine, and light appetizers; upgraded packages include top-shelf liquor and heavy appetizers.
