Looks like this week’s game was a bust. Did we even get any real guesses?
Oh, a few. Your comments mentioned Beaumont, River Oaks, the Westside Tennis Club, Hooks Airport, Waller County, Riverside (Terrace?), the Third Ward, Sharpstown, Fondren, Harwin, and Downtown.
No bluffers showed up.
So no winner this time. But a bunch of you sure had some fun with it! An honorable mention goes to Brad, for this first-rate snark:
The drop ceilings, the steel beam kickouts on the walls, the plastic chandeliers, the â€˜mediaâ€™ room with microwave stand and cafe-style seating, the fantasy executive boardroom with â€˜conferenceâ€™ table, and the executive exercise poolâ€¦
This is the Corporate Crimes wing of the Federal Prison near Beaumont where they sent Andy Fastow. The drapes and mini-blinds are covering the bars.
Bravo. And thanks again to the tipster who provided this ripe subject. What are its actual coordinates?

Yowza. How’s about we try something a little cozier next week? See you on Tuesday!
