Think you know Chicago like a garbage truck driver knows Italian beef? Then form your teams and mount your steeds Saturday October 13th for a city-wide scavenger hunt! Solve mysteries with hidden clues, race to beat the clock, collect ridiculous items, and bribe judges to raise funds for West Town Bikes, Chicago's premier bicycle learning workshop and youth program provider.
West Town Bikes has teamed up with the Law Offices of Jim Freeman, Chicago's beloved injured-cyclist defender, to create this point based scavenger hunt. Spanning from Howard Street to Hegewhich with thousands of points to rack up and challenges both preposterous and perplexing, this hunt is impossible to conquer and impossible not to enjoy! It all wraps up at the final checkpoint, Cole's Bar in Logan Square, at 10 pm with a free celebration and announcement of winners.
Team Registration: 6:30 PM at West Town Bikes - 2459 W. Division St. ($10 suggested donation per team member)
Hunt Starts: 7:30 PM sharp
Final Check Point 10 pm sharp, if you're a minute late you will be disqualified!
After party at Cole's Bar, 2338 N. Milwaukee - Free! (21+ years old). Party will start at 9pm with specials on New Belgium beer. Judging will begin at 10pm with winners and prizes announced throughout the evening!
Chicago new-wave dance punks the Warm Bloods are sure to get you moving and Impala Sound Champion DJ Dave Mata will keep you grooving as he spins soul, hip-hop, and reggae from his vast collection. With a beer special courtesy of New Belgium Brewing Co. you can support West Town Bikes right up till last call. So get your pals together, get your bikes a-rolling, and prove you know the city better than that guy from Ohio with a Chicago flag tattoo!
