Chicago revealed #1 – WINNAR

Congrats to Kristen, who correctly guessed the building that Chicago Revealed #1 is in.

For those of you who are still stumped, the location is The Field Museum, and for extra points Kristen even told me it was in Stanley Field Hall. (ed. I originally posted “Stanley Hall” and then she corrected me with “Stanley Field Hall” – double points, I guess, but still one prize)

She won a $10 gift certificate to Sweet Occasions.

Chicago revealed #3 will be posted on Wednesday. I guess this has evolved from being posted every two weeks (which it never was) to every three weeks. At least I’m a regular slacker!

Diamond is Forever

If you caught Larry Diamond on The Daily Show a few months back, you know he’s a goofy, but seriously committed guy. Here’s your chance to see him in person.

Ginger Man (trivia): We have a winner!

The winner of my modest lil contest (click here to view previous post) is Richard Zeid. The correct answer to the question “What movie features the interior of this Wrigleyville bar?” is The Color of Money. And the answer to the hint? Iggy Pop.

Thanks for all who submitted their answer. However, Richard takes home bragging rights, as well as a copy of the print. Congrats, Richard!

And for those of you that still have the itch to compete, check out our Chicago: revealed posts. #1 is still awaiting a winner.

Shooting in Rogers Park Thursday, October 27

You guys have heard me say this before, but damn, this blogger is good.

(Update: I turned comments off on this post because we were getting a lot of sales spam unrelated to it.)

That’s a lot of tape

Why is this man smiling? Because with each passing day, his son makes his failed single-term Presidency look like a golden age of sanity and reason.

Located @ 3740 N. Clark. Trivia: What movie features the interior of this Wrigleyville bar? First one to respond by email with the correct answer wins bragging rights. And, if they wish, a print of this image. Email your answers (and smart-ass comments) to photoloukey @ hotmail.com. Enter “Gingerman” in the subject line.

Hint: this flick features a cameo from a performer whose lust for life led to some real cut-ups on stage.

NOTE: this isn’t to be confused with our Chicago revealed posts. This is simply my attempt at being clever.

That’s a lot of pie

Sox Rally

The Sox World Series victory parade and rally, the first one since 1917, can be seen thru a live video feed NOW via the WGNTV website. WGNTV.com. (hi-speed internet connection recommended)

It’s an exciting time in Chicago, whether you’re a Sox fan or not.
