This is an amazing building. The internal street structure curves upwards some 60 floors, 850 fee and it was done in 1969 by Chicago architecture firm Perkins & Will. Don't miss the Chagall mosaic on the Towers courtyard!

A friend took a group of us to NPR's "wait, wait...don't tell me" in the Chase Auditorium. Outstanding production and live performance that was recorded for editing.

Chase Auditorium is a wonderful intimate theater for the taping of Wait Wait don't tell me NPR news quiz show. Absolutely a blast to attend.

The Chase Bank Auditorium hosts the Thursday taping of the popular NPR radio news quiz show. It is broadcast the following Saturday. Really fun and funny to watch live. The 2.5 hour show is edited down to the one hour broadcast.

Chicago is a dream for architecture buffs, from late 19th century to today. The Chase tower is another of the interesting buildings, and is most recognizable by its curved front. Step close to the wall and look up, the effect is amazing.
