Guess Where Wednesday & Last Week’s Winner | X Marks the Spot

2 mins read

It’s Guess Where Wednesday and we have a new mystery photo for you! I snapped this one last Sunday on Pokemon raid with my 11-year-old. That’s clue number one for those of you with Pokemon players because apparently the little gremlins love this particular place in Barrington. It’s a place where families frequent but the 365Barrington team says this one is tricky. I definitely had them stumped. Can you guess where in Barrington I took this week’s Mystery Photo?

Our main clue is simply this… “X Marks the Spot”

If you know the answer, enter your guess in the contest entry form below for a chance to win this week’s prize which is also a mystery. We love to keep you guessing ;).

Now for our last mystery photo contest winner… We snapped this image at a popular Barrington destination that you’ve probably driven past a million times. We ran the photo through an iPhone app to make the colors pop and this one was a challenge. Only three people submitted guesses!

We threw the names of all correct guessers in a hat and pulled out the winner. And her name is… Mandy Lowe! I just caught up with Mandy by phone and she and her family are new to Barrington. They moved here not long ago from Memphis (Welcome!) and we are impressed with their local detective skills! Mandy says it was her 11-year old daughter who guessed that the mystery photo is a picture from the mural on the facade of McGonigal’s Pub on Cook Street. The Lowe family will receive a gift card from Bryan McGonigal, owner of McGonigal’s. Thanks, Bryan and thanks Lowe family for entering our contest!
