Saturday fun activity: Where IS this?




     As with last week, I was going about my business, not thinking of the blog at all—it does happen—when I noticed a tableau that fairly shouted: "Saturday fun activity!"
     On the plus side. Very few people could have been in the room with this avian menagerie. It isn't some public spot that readers are constantly traipsing past. So that ramps up the difficulty factor.
     On the negative, someone knowledgable about the circles I travel in might hazard a guess.
     Which makes it doable and, who am I fooling, if history is any judge, it'll be cracked at 7:03 a.m., as always.
     Still, a guy can dream. Right? Right?! I mean Trump hasn't banned it yet, has he?
     So where is this flock of birds? The winner gets my already-five-years-old-Christ-I-can't-believe-it book about the city, "You Were Never in Chicago." Place you guesses below. Good luck.

  1. I'm guessing the National Museum of Mexican Art on 19th Street.

  2. From some of the written signs, it looks like a classroom of some kind, but then there's the one sign "If you're not doing shit....CUT!!"

    1. This was going to be my guess, due to the birds and "shit", but the signs seem kinda pedantic (for lack of a better word) based on my understanding of Mr. F.

    2. "Anonymous" has it. I'd tell you to claim your prize, but how would I know it if were the right person?
