Strange Places

So yesterday, I had a meeting in Lincolnwood, and my boss and I drove up there together. My boss grew up in a neighboring town, while I head north, but bypassing most of the suburbs to get directly to Wisconsin. He was pointing out all these crazy places ... so matter-of-factly. I, on the other hand, kept saying "Why didn't you tell me to bring my camera?" and "This sure does explain a lot about you."

- Super Dawg -- complete with boy and girl hot dogs atop the restaurant.
- The Leading Tower YMCA -- it even has a fountain, reflecting pool and a telefono booth.
- The Purple Hotel -- now closed. Hmmm, have no idea why. But in case you missed the purple tiles all around it, it really was called "The Purple Hotel."
