Eric you beat me to the Playboy club trivia. And yes the tower was originally going to be placed in Chicago. As far as I understand Playboy backed out at the very last minute on the deal, apparently Hefner thought the tower just wouldn't fit the "classy" Playboy look. However I can tell you that the originally plans (these are off pure memory, and might be backwards) had called for the bottom level of the tower to be a restaurant/bar, and the top level to be the dance floor.
