Hogs & Honeys is one of those bars, like Coyote Ugly or Hogs and Heifers, that advertises loud music, girls dancing on the bar, and a mechanical bull. It doesn't necessarily advertise the crowds of frat boys and drunken executive-types who stand around gawking and whooping. I'm not sure I would expect there to be a photobooth at a bar like that, but it's Chicago, the land where the photobooth is king.

Hogs & Honeys' photobooth is a color Model 21E that produces nice, clear photos, with four rounded corners, a nice touch. The photobooth is covered in beveled wood paneling that makes it look like it belongs in someone's den or game room. I managed to avoid the cover on the way into the bar on the pretense that I was checking just to see whether the photobooth was working or not, but in my glee at having avoided it, I forgot to snap a photo of the booth. I returned later that night and paid my way in to complete the report.

UPDATE 11/9/16: Andrew writes that Hogs & Honeys is no longer here, replaced by a Nordstrom Rack, and so this booth is gone.
