Where am IIf you’re a subscriber to our weekly email newsletter, than you already know how much you’re loved and appreciated by Kari and the contributors to this website. Many of you have followed through the good times and the … not so good times. You comment here, on social media, and you even email us with thoughts and suggestions. So, it’s no wonder we love spoiling you to pieces. You are why we’re still here and we want to say thank you in yet another way.

“Where Am I”

Once a month on average,  we will send an email to subscribers containing an obscure photo or photos taken at a different location around Chicago. The photo will first be posted to our Instagram feed. <—- That part is especially important if you have yet to follow us on the ‘gram! The first to guess “where we are” receives a gift card to that location. Think you know where we are? Respond with your answer in the comments section under the photo on Instagram. That’s it! To reiterate:

How to Win

  1. See a photo on Instagram (Chicagoings) with the caption “Where am I”. (If you’re a subscriber to our newsletter, you will also receive an email alerting you to the contest BUT it won’t be sent simultaneously! Make sure you follow us on Instagram to increase your chances of winning.)

  2. Respond with the location where the picture was taken under the photo on Instagram. Note: You must be a subscriber to our newsletter in order to win! < — Also important.

  3. We will contact you via email with instructions on how to claim your prize.

Our objective is to promote our favorite places around town while rewarding readers for your loyalty.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are a subscriber to Chicagoings’ Weekly Newsletter but do not wish to participate in this game, there will be instructions on how to opt out in your first “Where Am I” email. Also, you can just shoot us an email and we’ll be sure not to bother you with this giveaway game.

The first photo in the contest will be posted this week. Stay tuned!
