189. “Guess Where Wednesday” & Last Week’s Winner

Home Newsroom 189. “Guess Where Wednesday” & Last Week’s Winner

Well, so much for stumping you! I tried my best to trick you with last week’s mystery photo and it didn’t work. Over 20 people submitted correct guesses and we picked our winner today. More on that in a minute. But first, here is our new mystery photo of the week. I think it’s a toughie, but I could be wrong. Can you guess where in Barrington this picture was taken?

We’ll get to this week’s prize in a minute. But first, let’s talk about last week’s winner. Just moments ago my babysitter drew the winning name and it is…

Marti Bonne!

Guess Where Wednesday Contest Winner

Thanks for your guess and congratulations, Marti. I’ve never met Marti, but I’ve talked with her on the phone. She’s a Barrington High School graduate and one of the members of “Together Again”, the band formed by several BHS alums that plays at parties and festivals throughout the year in Barrington. We’ve written about Marti’s band here on the blog before and you’ll find that post by clicking HERE. I’ll be emailing you this afternoon, Marti, with details about how to receive your $50 gift card to Chessies 111 Grille. Click HERE to view last week’s photo and to see all of the guesses. It is, indeed, a picture of the digital marquis outside of Barrington High School.  I tried to snap the photo before the homecoming message fully appeared to make it a little more challenging, but you’re all too quick for that ;).  Here’s another, more revealing look at the spot where we took that picture.

  1. Wow, I’m last week’s winner–awesome! I haven’t won anything in years and years! 🙂

    And thank you very much for mentioning my band and adding the link to your writeup about us, too–very much appreciated!

    I’ll hold off on guessing the pictures for awhile, but this is a really fun game you’ve got going!


  2. I know I’m after your deadline, but just discovered your website fun! Looking forward to trying out some new and different things in B-town. 🙂

    Anyway, pretty sure that’s the sing in front of Barrington Shoe Service on Hough St…pass it almost every day! 🙂
