Saturday fun activity redux: Where IS this?

     Okay, that was too easy.
     The Saturday activity I posted below was solved in, like, a second.
     The Palmer House, of course. 
     I was banking on people not looking up.
     Which is crazy, because everybody looks up.
     And that would have been fine had I gone to bed.
     But I checked the blog again—stupid—and found that the gig was up.
     Okay, the full Boy Scout try. I haven't done two contests on a Saturday, but I couldn't stand the thought of hundreds of disappointed visitors finding the contest already solved. And seeing how October was a record month for pageviews, I had better start showing some pride and professionalism. I mean, there's no RULE that says I can't have two contests. There are no rules at all, in fact, except the new one: No Dales.
      So something more enigmatic, like this strange room, with books for light fixtures. This strikes me as being much harder. 
      Where the heck is THIS?
      You'll still get it. I haven't stumped you yet, to my shame. But maybe it'll be at 10 a.m., instead of 12 frickin' 17. 
      The prize is a bag of fine Bridgeport cofee—a $13 value. If you guess this one in a minute, you'll have to wait until morning to find if you are correct. Remember to post your guesses below. And remember our new rule: Dale can't play. Good luck.

    1. I like that guess. The Thorne Rooms should have some weird Dada-esque space. But they don't.

  3. Then, Colleen More's dollhouse at MSI?

    1. Nope. Full sized room.

      I'll give you a hint. It's related to a major news story last month in Chicago.

    1. That's it! Man, you guys are good. Send me your address and I'll send you your coffee. Dailysteinberg@gmail.com. Wow, I'm impressed.

  5. One of the houses that was supposed to be burnt up at the Fire Festival?

  6. Holy smokes! You'd think that chandeliers made with old law books would show up somewhere in a google image search, but not that I've found. Obviously someone with money to burn, since that's got to be a stage set of a room, not a place people actually use, but if Bruce Rauner has that much of a sense of humor it hasn't shown up in this campaign. A law firm that represents a lot of artists? A terribly hip new restaurant? Totally baffled.

    1. You are correct, in the money-to-burn aspect. More than you realize. It's a room in the Redmoon HQ ... see above.

  7. Capone's former 2 flat on the South Side?

  8. Some theater? Back wall doesn't seem to go all the way up to a ceiling, suggesting a stage set. Nothing playing at Steppenwolf (news link: Martha Lavey's departure) fits that though.

  9. Congrats to the winner! It took me over 2 hours to find it, so I wouldn't have won even if I was eligible. I still like to play, though. I'll just keep the answers to myself, lol.

    1. That's sporting of you Dale. You don't mind my having a bit of fun with you. My kid thinks it's unfair of me to impose this rule, but I don't want you to become our Tiger Woods, who almost wrecked golf at one point. Or am I missing something here?

    2. I thought it was hilarious. Plus, I'm not a huge Tiger Woods fan. It's nice to see Rory McIlroy or Sergio Garcia win sometimes.
