Nope.

Hint #1 - it has the same name as a figure associated with the assassination.

Nice job, Roger! That is indeed the Parker House where Booth supposedly met with some Confederate higher ups. Except for a few benefits, he never acted again after his stay there. You are now the reigning TAC Champ!

I hope it's a sunnier (and warmer) day where you live than in Vienna - I'd like to be here now:

RE: Trivia Advent Calendar
Based on the way you worded the question...can I assume this is not in the United States?

(Eva, where Vicki and I live...forecast highs for the next 3 days...87, 87, 85. Our local forecaster said a couple of records may be broken. But much of the USA is colder than normal right now.)

I'd love to be in FL or Hawaii right now!!!!

But you are right - it's not in the US. (But a place where I'd like to be contains another strong geographical hint to those who know me...).

Ha - logical guess, Joe - I thought less specifically - of a rather southern coastal area. It's not in Tunisia.

Here's the weather forecast for Mr. Lincoln:
   

PS: Please try to think of yes/no questions - I will answer them.

This question obviously doesn't score...

Good idea, Laurie (another place where I'd love to be now!!!), but Roger is on the right track. (Thomas, please re-read post #847!)
