189. Best of Barrington Survey Results: “Out on the Town”

 We recently published a survey at 365Barrington.com, asking visitors to share their recommendations about all things Barrington in a range of 10 categories.  There are about 75 questions in our survey and the response was overwhelming!  So overwhelming, in fact, that we’ve just now completed the process of tallying the votes.  And that means it’s now time to finally reveal the results.  Because there are 10 categories in this survey, we’ll reveal the results of one category each week, starting with the first category called Out on the Town.

As a quick reminder, all ten of our categories have the following names: Out on the Town, The Active Life, Shopping, Clothing, The Best Eats, Sweet Treats, For the Home and Garden, Barrington Services, Health & Beauty and Neighborhoods. With our Out on the Town category, we hoped to get a snapshot of what people most like to do when they step out to socialize in Barrington.  So before you plan your next night out, check out these reader recommendations……

188. KIDS CLUB: Solve the Blue House Riddle to Win

 On the first day of every month we host a special contest just for kids here at 365Barrington.com. Because today is July 1st, we have a brand new contest in the form of a riddle about a little blue house.

Any kids who can correctly answer the following riddle are eligible to win July’s Kids Club contest.  Learning Express Toys has given us another $100 worth of gift cards to give away at their stores in Barrington and Lake Zurich so the prize for our winner or winners is pretty sweet.  You’ll find details on how to enter the contest below, but first, take a look at our riddle.  You’ll need your thinking cap for this one ;).
There is a one story house and everything is blue.
The lamp is blue, the floor is blue.
The walls are blue and
the roof is blue.
What color are the stairs?
Before we share details on how to enter July’s contest, it’s time to reveal the winner from last month.  Because June is a month for celebrating dads on Father’s Day, we asked kids to draw a picture of their dads and share what they most love to do with their dad. Our winner is a ten year old boy named Patrick Wang who says, “My favorite thing to do with my dad is to play ping pong with him.” And here’s a look at the picture Patrick drew, winning him a $100 gift card from Learning Express Toys in Barrington and Lake Zurich……
