route check, 4

The Chinese New Year Treasure Hunt 2008, organized by veteran San Francisco private investigator Jayson Wechter, takes place Saturday, February 23rd. Here’s more information on how it works.

The Chinese New Year Treasure Hunt is a unique team adventure game, an exercise in urban sleuthing played on the colorful streets of Chinatown, North Beach, and Telegraph Hill amid the excitement, noise and spectacle of the annual Chinese New Year Parade. Explore obscure alleys and hidden lanes, solving clues created by local private eye Jayson Wechter. Along the way discover secret San Francisco, the hidden history, culture and artwork that most tourists (and many residents) are unaware of.

Partial proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Circus Center and the Bernal Heights Neighborhood Center.
