Saturday fun activity: Where IS this?


     Maybe because it's new — since it's just now being built, it would kind of have to be — and off the beaten track, I saw this construction and thought, "Maybe...."
     I couldn't be confident, since you've cracked absolutely everything I've thrown at you, including last week's carpet bagger from Philadelphia. But this might prove something of a challenge. That's the hope at least ...
     Anywhere, where is this thing? The winner will receive one of my last 2015 posters, whose stock, I am happy to report, slowly diminishes. Post your guesses below. Good luck.

  1. This is new construction on Northwestern's Evanston campus. The view is from the lake fill park area, where we have been running and biking for years.

    1. Yes, congrats Melissa. You won in May, so already have this year's poster. What would you like instead? Last year's? A book?

    2. Thanks Neil! I'd love a book, though last year's poster is also pretty neat. Dealer's choice?

    3. Sure, though you'll end up with last year's poster then. I have more of those than books.

  2. Damn, that was fast. By the by, at NU some folks call this thing Battlestar Kellogg, as it will be the Bidness School's new home.

    1. Hah, funny. My first thought seeing the picture was "looks like a spaceship."

    2. That was actually slow, by Fun Activity standards. I missed you at the HIstory Museum lat night, Bill. Rick Kogan and Tony Fitzpatrick were superlative.

  3. Has any location ever not been guessed correctly?

  4. Thanks Neil! A book would be lovely, though last year's poster is pretty neat, too. Dealer's choice? I'd be happy with anything.

  5. This place is so special! Speaking of special, this is how our evening went at venues in Los Angeles. I met my buddies in the downstairs part, which is more than just an average kind of bar with a lot of woodwork.
