Boston Fails to Set Guinness World Record; Can Chicago do it?

Boston Fails to Set Guinness World Record; Can Chicago do it?

Boston attempted to gather the most redheads in one place at Irish Fest to set a Guinness World Record.


Based on my Twitter interactions and naked eye on the street, I'm noticing lots of redheads exist in Chicago. It's a bigger city than Boston and there's a sizable Irish population (though, don't get me started on not all redheads being Irish).


I'm wondering if (and how) we could/should compete with Boston for this title?


Thoughts? St. Patrick's Day flash mobs have been brought up in past discussions.

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
