We’ll get to this week’s prize in a minute. But first, let’s talk about last week’s winner. We had a bunch of correct guessers last week, but we drew the name today and the winner is…

Wil Carr!

Thanks for your guess and congratulations, Wil. I’ll be emailing you this afternoon with details about how to receive your two complimentary movie tickets, meals and cocktails at Gold Class Cinemas in South Barrington. Click HERE to view last week’s photo. Here’s another, more revealing look at the spot where we took that picture.

The Sanfilippo Estate's Eden Palais Carousel

This is the Eden Palais Carousel at the Sanfilippo Estate.  That’s the Barrington Hills home of the family that founded John B. Sanfilippo and Sons, Inc., the parent company of Fisher Nuts.  The European salon carousel was built in 1890. Several different owners toured France with the Eden Palais from 1890 through 1959. It was later owned by a family in Colorado and another family in Montana before the Sanfilippo’s foundation acquired the Eden Palais in 1987. They meticulously restored the carousel and built a building to house it in 1997 where they now host gala charity fundraisers and guided tours. Which brings me to the prize for this week’s mystery photo.

This Week’s Prize

For the winner of this week’s contest, The Sanfilippo Foundation is offering two tickets for a private, three-hour, docent-guided tour of the Sanfilippo Estate. That includes viewing and hearing the foundation’s incredible collection of beautifully restored antique music machines, phonographs, arcade and gambling machines, chandeliers, art glass, a mini-concert on the world’s largest theater pipe organ and a visit to the Carousel Pavilion to check out the Eden Palais in person. This is an awesome tour and is a very special opportunity.

Here’s how it works:

  • You can submit your guesses about where today’s mystery photo was taken in the comments area for this post.
  • You have until midnight on Friday to submit your guess.
  • The following Wednesday, we’ll draw a name, reveal the winner at and contact the winner with instructions about receiving the prize of the week.
  • Only one guess per person is allowed.

  • Your email address must be valid, so we can contact you if you win.

All you have to do is SUBMIT YOUR GUESS IN THE “COMMENTS” BOX BELOW.  We’re working on finding more great prizes for future “Guess Where Wednesdays”.  In the meantime, happy Hump Day, good luck with your guessing and here’s one more look at this week’s Mystery Photo.

  1. The ceiling filled with planes is one of my favorite place to get the Original Chuck Wagon Skillet, “The Canteen”.

  2. Hi Liz, this is a picture of some of the model WWII airplanes that are hanging from the ceiling at the Canteen Restaurant on Hough St. in Barrington.
