Curl-Up-and-Dye Salon
8500 S. Burley, Chicago

eah, I know this place was on screen for all of four seconds but I decided to put it in the tour since it was on the way. This is the salon where Carrie Fisher's character sat reading the operator's manual for the flame thrower. I think the storefront was converted to a residence and the front of the building was resurfaced with stone, but it should still look familiar to fans of the Blues Brothers movie.

Getting there: Drive south on South Lake Shore Drive following signs for US 41 or South Shore Drive. The road winds again but eventually you'll come to a traffic light requiring a right turn at 85th and Burley. At the stoplight, the building is the one on your right.
