Drink & Hunt - Scavenger Hunt/Pub Crawl

While we were in Massachusetts this weekend I wanted our group to do something a little different than the usual Halloween activities & I came across a website called Drink & Hunt.

What is Drink & Hunt? The mobile based scavenger hunt and pub crawl game. Combining the thrill of a scavenger hunt and the fun of a pub crawl, Drink & Hunt utilizes its extensive network of Boston area pubs, bars and taverns to ensure a good time and a unique experience. - Straight from the drink & hunt website.



Once I saw this site I knew my friends & I had to do this. The point of the game is to find as many bars in the shortest amount of time, you find these bars with clues sent to your cell phone.

Now this game was NOT easy for us since we were at a MAJOR disadvantage since we are not from the Boston area and the clues we received were all based on knowing the area, but that's nothing google & random strangers couldn't fix. Thankfully this scavenger hunt was the day before Halloween & costumes were encouraged - this was helpful because everyone LOVES penguins & everyone we met wanted to help us win. One trolley driver even drove us (for FREE)  to one of the bars when we asked for directions!
Here are some random pictures we took that day..

Our group name was The Wasted Waddlers.

This is our gangster winners pose. Yup that's right, I said WINNERS POSE!

At the end of the hunt there were finger foods and random prizes.

The hunt we went on was open to everyone & all we had to do was sign up and pay the price for tickets.
You can also contact them about a custom hunt for a party or work occasion.  

I would definitely recommend this to everyone I know. It was a great day running around Boston - drinking, playing a game, & laughing with friends. I really couldn't have asked for a better experience and the next time I go to Boston I will be sure to do this again.

Thank you Greg (woopie) & Ben for such a great adventure.
