Never quite got a handle on the whole flash sale thing? Miss the thrill of camping out all night and stumbling into class the next day clutching a ticket that declares to the world “I did it!”? Not to fear! Always eager to please, SPEC is giving students another way to fight for the right to party.
On Friday, April 5th, SPEC is holding an Instagram Scavenger Hunt, where teams of 2 to 4 people will compete to score some of that fling floor gold. Teams will be led to different fling-related locations around campus and upload pics to Instagram to receive more clues. Click here to register and get more information about the hunt. Filter your way to victory!
Get your drinking pants on now because registration ends tomorrow for what sounds like a winning combo: a team scavenger hunt and bar crawl through some of our favorite (…and not so favorite) UCity spots on Cinco de Mayo! (For you Anglophiles, that’s May 5th.)
According to uwishunu, Young Friends of University City, which exists, is partnering with six bars and restaurants to put on the first (annual, we hope) “Hunt ‘n Crawl”. Participants form teams of up to 10, and then complete a list of tasks and challenges throughout University City at spots like City Tap House, Landmark Americana Tap & Grill, New Deck Tavern, Smokey Joe’s, The Blockley, and Pizza Rustica.
All participants get in on the drink specials offered at each locale, as well as a few other perks. We’re hearing reports of “Hunt N Crawl” promotional T-shirts, and in culturally insensitive Cinco de Mayo fashion, a team sombrero. The winners will receive a complimentary brunch at City Tap House and a $75 bar credit at Blockley. Take us out for a drink after you claim your prize!
Like An Easter Egg Hunt. But With Text Messages.
What happens when geeky tech-savvy students organize an (inherently geeky) scavenger hunt? You’d probably get this week’s Venmo Geo Hunt, hosted by the Interactive Media Group. The week-long scavenger hunt starts today and contestants can win up to 200 bucks by participating. You’ll have to sign up for two cell phone services, SCVNGR and Venmo, to participate. Fortunately, it doesn’t cost anything and Venmo (started by Penn alums) is actually pretty legit and useful; you can pay back friends and even food trucks (Don Memo’s, Coup de Taco) via text message. Awesome! Cash sucks. Sign up for the hunt here. So go ahead, cast that social network into the world of new media.
