Chicago Nicknames Quiz!


This is the second in a series of quizzes about Chicago that I will post from time to time. Everyone who answers all five questions correctly will be entered in a drawing to win a free, autographed copy of It Happened in Chicago!

The deadline for entering this contest is Sunday, September 13. Just post your answers to the Quiz in a Comment and make sure you provide a way for me to contact you. If you prefer not to post contact info publicly, you'll have to check back here next week to find out if you won. If you win, you can email me privately with your snail mail address.

A couple of these might be considered "trick questions." That's just to make it more fun! Don't worry. I'm a lenient grader.

There is no penalty for guessing! So go on and give it a whirl. You know you want to. Good luck to all! Ready? Set? GO!
