So the Trib has been having a "Find It" game this summer, where they show a portion of a picture of Chicagoland landmark and ask readers to write in with their best guesses. I had to smile when I saw this week's challenge...which shouldn't be much of a challenge for this group.

Do you know what or where this is?

I think you can hear Gene on the PA system in the background noise of the audio.

What is with the seagulls in the audio clue?The clue was probably recorded at the plate, and when's the last time you saw a big parking lot without a bunch of seagulls circling and looking for dropped food?

Yeah I heard it, at the end when the lady talks.

"Yeah it was run down!" Ok, so is Wrigley...you think that might be a clue when they have that dump in this contest?

For this group...easy. A better clue would have been:
For anyone that actually reads the trib or works there, this place would be tough to find (in the newspaper).
