Not much of a website up for this except for a few video clips of the demos.
You can’t tell me that you wouldn’t book a room in this motel.
This is a brochure taken from the Hartwig Gobbler, a motel-bar-restaurant off I-94 in Wisconsin. The brochure dates from construction, which must have been in the late 60s. But I got the brochure on a trip in March of 1984, and the restaurant was as ghastly then as it is in the pictures. What the current state is, I don’t know. Internet searches pull up no mention of this classic – although the architect, the flamboyantly named, echt-60s multi-material genius Helmut Ajango, still has a practice in the area.
I am curious if this motel is still there. If anybody from Wisconsin knows about The Gobbler, leave a message in the comments to let us know. (Tom, this one is up your alley)
Things are a bit different from country to country. Take New Zealand for example:
In New Zealand they celebrate Guy Fawkes Day as the day for Halloween. It is popularly a night for mischief and is called Mischief Night or Danger Night, which is on November 5th.

I am not really sure how to explain this effectively so just click the link and zoom in or out. Impressive.
