Organization: Detroit Historical society
Venue: hard rock cafe detroit s
|Event Date/Time: Sep 15, 2012 / 11:00 am - (EST)||End Date/Time: Sep 15, 2012 / 2:00 pm - (EST)|
Starting at 11 a.m. at Hard Rock Cafe, 45 Monroe Street in Detroit, participants will have the opportunity to register as a team of three to five people, or solo and be paired with a team. Contestants will be asked to contribute a $10 suggested donation per person at the door, benefitting the Detroit Historical Society’s Past>Forward campaign.
Scavenger hunters will be released into the city at noon with an envelope of clues and a 313 Scavenger Hunt passport which must be stamped by a scavenger hunt staff member at each landmark. The first three teams to find all the landmarks and return to the cafe will be recognized for their speedy efforts with an assortment of prizes courtesy of the Detroit Historical Society and Hard Rock Cafe Detroit.
Additionally, upon registration each participant will be entered in a drawing for two grand prizes, including tickets to a Detroit Lions game and an exclusive sneak preview of the new exhibits at the Detroit Historical Museum.
“The 313 Scavenger Hunt is the Detroit Historical Society’s way of bringing the museum to the public, even while we’re closed for renovations,” said Bob Sadler, director of public and external relations at the Detroit Historical Society. “Each scavenger hunt landmark relates directly to our new exhibits and brings the history represented back to the streets of Detroit, where it all began.”
As an added incentive, Hard Rock Cafe Detroit will also offer food and drink specials to participants throughout the day. Scavenger hunters can enjoy $6 Bloody Mary’s from 11 a.m. to noon and a happy hour featuring half off draft beers, premium wines and malt liquors and $5 mini nachos.
