Sam Zell had another of his big birthday bashes over the weekend in Chicago. A blogger connected to a relative posted a report and pics at the Philadelphia City Paper blog.
Just your average Sam Zell birthday party...That is, if you consider around 800 people bused to an undisclosed location, around 15,000 square foot of space under a big-top circus tent, performance artists, actors dressed as animals, a parade of sculpted bronze circus animals, a large carousel, bearded ladies, illuminated photo-montages, stilt-walkers, six or seven bars serving top shelf liquor, food for miles, and a live performance from the ’80s band, The Eagles…. to be average.
Those are bearded ladies on the left, and Sam and Helen Zell on the right. Via Romenesko.
