More than 50 shops and restaurants in Wicker Park & Bucktown and West Town are revving up for Unwrap WPB kicking off on December 1 and 2 and running until December 24. Like every year, it's touted as the city's biggest neighborhood shopping extravaganza and is the Near West Side's shining moment for shopping and stunt-y Santa shenanigans.
The Unwrap WPB weekend includes free trolleys to destinations like the Renegade Holiday Craft Fair, freebies at salons, the hilarious build-a plywood snowman event, discounts and promotions, cocoa and cookies and potential Santa sightings at any point.
