👋 Hi, it's Justin!

First off, what a great inaugural quiz last week! Thousands played, and only a handful got all five questions right.

  • Spoiler alert: Ministry played Lollapalooza in 1992.

This week in Chicago history, investigative journalist Geraldo Rivera went live on television to open a long-sealed vault belonging to Al Capone. What would Rivera find? Well, nothing.

  • But we all watched the spectacular failure.

In honor of Geraldo, how well do you know Chicago's famous stunts?
