Chicago is renowned for its architecture. Let's take advantage of a rare opportunity to get behind the scene access to some of the gems that dot our skyline. Get your camera and sneakers and lets do a walking tour of the following sites:

Chicago's Oriental Theater
Behind the Scenes – Lobby and Auditorium

CTA Headquarters
Behind the Scenes – 33,000 Square green roof with unique view of the city

Civic Opera House
Behind the Scenes – Grand Foyer and theater

Chicago Sky Temple
Behind the Scenes – Sky chapel and patio

Kemper Building
Behind the Scenes – 41st Floor with views of Chicago River

Lake Point Tower
Behind the Scenes – Rooftop garden and building rooftop

Sullivan Center
Behind the Scenes – 12th Floor Zero/Zero lounge

Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies
Behind the Scenes – Panoramic views of Grant Park and Museum Campus

Tribune Tower
Behind the Scenes – 24th Floor with Panoramic views

I will add a meeting spot once I determine the shortest route to visit all these places.

The event runs Saturday and Sunday. If possible, I would like visit some of the locations in Bronzeville, Prairie District, Chinatown and/or Pilsen on Sunday if anyone is interested.

Here is the link for all the sites and what you have access to at each site.

Feel free to organize groups to other sites via the thread.

Cheers!
