294. "Guess Where Wednesday" & Last Week’s Winner


Guess Where Wednesday Weekly 365 Barrington Mystery Photo Contest

We have a winner from last week’s Mystery Photo Contest.  I tried to crop the photo to make it tricky, but ye guessers can not be fooled!  We’ll announce the winner in just a minute.  But first, we have a wedding theme going this week at 365Barrington.com in honor of this Saturday’s first annual 60010 Barrington Bridal Connection Show at the Ice House Mall.  And again, after considerable cropping, I have come up with another Wednesday mystery photo.  Who can guess where in Barrington I was when I took this picture?

We have a special prize for the winner of this new mystery photo contest.  But first, let’s talk about last week’s winner. Just moments ago we drew the winning name and it is…

Kim Weidler Wins the 365 Barrington Weekly Mystery Photo Contest

Thanks for your guess and congratulations, Kim. I’ll be emailing you this afternoon with details about how to receive your $25 Gift Certificate to McGonigal’s Pub. Click HERE to view last week’s photo and to see all of the guesses. It is, indeed, a picture of the Sláinte sign above the front entrance to McGonigal’s  in Barrington. Sláinte (pronounced ‘slawn-che’) is commonly used as a drinking toast in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man, literally translating as “health”.  Can you believe it’s almost been one year since McGonigal’s opened its doors in Barrington?  They’re planning a huge one year anniversary party to coincide with St. Patrick’s Day this year.  I’ll toast to that! Here’s another, more revealing overhead look at the spot where I took that picture.

    Our daughter is getting her dress from Marsha. Sad to hear about Sherry’s recent passing too, we’ve known her and her family for many years.
