The Chinese New Year Treasure Hunt 2009, organized by veteran San Francisco private investigator Jayson Wechter, takes place this Saturday, February 7th in San Francisco.
The Chinese New Year Treasure Hunt is a unique urban sleuthing adventure played on the streets of Chinatown, North Beach, and Telegraph Hill on the night of the annual Chinese New Year Parade. Treasure hunting teams have four hours to solve sixteen clues leading them to obscure landmarks, forgotten architectural delights and vestiges of San Francisco’s colorful past. Players can come with a team already organized, or can join like-minded hunters at the event; it’s a great way to make new friends.
Here’s more information on how it works and registration. Partial proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Circus Center and the Bernal Heights Neighborhood Center.
