The Godfrey Hotel Chicago Challenges You to Name an Element


The Godfrey Hotel Chicago knows a thing or two about the elements. Resembling large stacking blocks made out of modern steel, the luxury boutique hotel features nods to the elements throughout its property. 

This past year, scientists discovered element 139, which has yet to have an official name. Ever a fan of the periodic table, the Godfrey is offering the following for the wittiest name suggestions:

  • First place: Discounted rate of $139 throughout the entire year of 2014, one night complimentary stay, and a $25 gift card to I|O Urban Roofscape

  • Second place: Complimentary one-night stay

  • Third place: $25 gift card to I|O Urban Roofscape

Enter now through January 21 on the Godfrey Hotel Facebook page here

It was just last week that the days of hearing “Please turn off all your electronic devices” on the loudspeaker before flight takeoffs and landings came to an end.

Delta has rolled out its first contest to award photos taken below 10,000 feet, appropriately using the hashtag: #below10kfeet. They’re encouraging flyers to “take that picture you’ve always wanted during takeoff and submit using Wi-Fi once enabled.” They’ll be putting two First-Class tickets to anywhere in the U.S. up as a prize for the best low-altitude photo taken on a domestic Delta flight.
