Various toys are visible all with a physical address in various U.S. cities pinned on them. By instruction, you must travel to these locations. You can’t call them.

The instructions ask you to go on location under the name “Robin Banks” (also known as “Robbing Banks”) with one prize awarded per location on a first-come, first-served basis.

The locations are all bakery stores. The prizes are all bakery delights with an attached phone number. As the bears disappear with each new discovery, the mallet hits harder.

Thanks go to Paul for these descriptions. As the bears disappear, more appear. It becomes evident that the number of bears equals the number of lights. Cakes are awarded at locations.

The note reads:

Wow. You really took the cake! Now put the icing on it. Call (phone number) immediately from this phone and this phone only. Do not give this phone number to anyone else.

Let’s hope your fellow goons come through as well as you. Once all the layers are in place, you’ll all get your just desserts. I’m a man of my word.

3:32 p.m. update: I just received from a reader new photos of the Chicago cake from Halsted Street.

When the person called the phone number, a lady answered from Rent-a-Clown to thank the caller. She said she knew who the caller was. The caller then received a text from the Joker saying:

“Good work, clown! Keep this phone charged and with you at all times. Don’t call me. I will call you … eventually.”

Credit for these photos goes to VLKERS54. The person also told me: “I had to fight another kid for it (only verbally).”

4:58 p.m. update: Alas, the last cake was located and the day was won. With all the lights lit up and clicking on the top, the following page was revealed.

TV, DVD, BLU-RAY & THEATER REVIEWS

  • Speech & Debate (stage play)

    CHICAGO – “Speech & Debate,” the latest production from the mighty Brown Paper Box Company, continues their tradition of thinking outside that “box” in presenting storefront theater that makes a statement and a difference. “Speech” goes inside America by showcasing the outsiders… those who create art because they can’t get it right in real life. This non-equity Chicago stage play premiere is finely tuned and wonderfully acted, and runs through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • We're Gonna Be Okay

    CHICAGO – The 1960s were a time of historical social transition. The movements – civil rights, feminist, gay rights – all had roots in that tumultuous decade. The Chicago premiere of Basil Kreimendahl’s “We’re Gonna Be Okay” echoes all of those movements in its characters, and collides them against the October 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the American Theater Company through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
