Cd'A Back Door Photo Contest

"I am a back door man," Howlin' Wolf first sang in 1961, and though he was singing about sneaking in the back door of his lover's house while her husband was gone away, he could have been referring to the many wonderful exits that go completely unnoticed on the far sides of our local restaurants and lounges. Some are quite lovely. Others, meh. How experienced are you with the shadowy derriere's of familiar Coeur d'Alene food and drink establishments? See how many you can guess!

Entrant with the most correct names wins a $10 gift certificate at one of the places in the quiz (not saying where, that'd be a hint.) Email entries to orangetv@yahoo.com. Contest ends Sunday June 21 at noon when the answers will be posted in comments section. Photos can be enlarged a little by clicking on them. All pictures were taken within Cd'A city limits only.
