80 years ago, the Orrington Hotel in Evanston opened its doors for business. Last week, they closed them in preparation for a major $22 million renovation. But first, everything in the hotel is being sold off. Everything. Chairs, lamps, sconces, barstools, clock radios, bedsheets, bellman's carts, armoires, every last plate, glass and napkin. And it looks like it's going for relatively cheap. The sale started today and will continue for 30 days or until everything sells out.
