Instagrammer Chronicles The Saddest Chicago Bachelor Party Ever

Labor Day Weekend was full of weddings, reunions, air travel and other last-ditch efforts to savor summer—and with them, the massive flight delays you might expect.

A slew of flight delays left one unlucky New Yorker in Chicago for a friend's bachelor party getaway utterly alone when none of the other men in his party could make their flights. Robbie Chernow, 28, decided to turn his unexpectedly solo-visit to Chicago into a one-man tromp through the bachelor party's itinerary, and chronicle the whole thing on his Instagram account in a series of morose and hilarious selfies.

"Hey @notjake_fromstatefarm, thanks for inviting me to your bachelor party and then having your flight get canceled so I'm the only one here! Let's go Bears! #chicagoforone," Chernow wrote on Instagram Friday as he kicked-off the bachelor party for one with a trip to a Bears game.

it only gets sadder and more comical from there as Chernow proceeds to take a lonely boat tour on the Chicago River and snaps a particularly distressed-looking photo in front of the Navy Pier carousel—along with a passive aggressive jab at the groom-to-be who could make it to his bachelor party.

Chicago is a beautiful city filled with beautiful people....I assume #chicagoforone

Chernow met some helpful Chicagoans along the way, including a Portillo's waitress and a John Hancock Tower attendant...

...And he tried his hand a meeting people on Tinder, with disastrous results:

First time using Tinder! Fingers crossed! #chicagoforone

Chernow was at times so alone, he somehow managed to get a photo of his reflection in the Bean without any other people in it:

Chernow's sightseeing, stunts and Instagram hasthag earned him international attention by the weekend's close. Personally, we're proud of Chicago for showing Chernow a good time, and wondering whether #ChicagoForOne will get any follow-up acts.
