Apparently I was the 15th person who voted today, with the day half over…

There was a ballot initiative banning concealed weapons in bars, and another banning high-capacity ammunition clips – I had heard zero about either of these, glad I voted…

Not sure if this was a member of the Club who wanted to play a bit of jazz, or a paid performer.

The Cliff Dwellers: As seen during the Chicago Architectural Society’s Open House, 2013.

http://ift.tt/JkAbH4

Cliff Dwellers sits on top of 220 S. Michigan Avenue, just under the iconic Borg Warner sign. Founded in 1907 as the Attic Club, it was renamed The Cliff Dwellers in 1909. After inhabiting the top floor of neighboring Orchestra Hall for decades, Cliff Dwellers moved to the 22nd floor of the Borg Warner building in 1996. It remains a private club and is a non-profit organization for men and women who support the fine and performing arts. The club is a haven for artists, authors, musicians, painters, architects and sculptors. Notable members have included Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, Lorado Taft and Hamlin Garland.
