If you haven't caught out on our admonition Open House Chicago 2012 is one of great events of the year, I've included this gallery to convince you, starting with the image above, from the delirious Oriental Theater.  There's one more day, Sunday, October 14, to take in your own selection of the 150+ participating sites from Rodgers Park to South Shore and all points in between with a bunch sites that were closed Saturday opening up on Sunday.

Check it all out at Open House Chicago 2012.
