Scavenger Hunt in Huntington Beach (plus more)

January is half over, are you participating in the Scavenger Hunt downtown?   It goes til the end of the month, so there is still time.  25 HB Downtown businesses are participating in this month-long scavenger hunt with over $2500 in prizes.

"Players" can pick up a game form at any of the twenty-five businesses and start playing right away.  The Scavenger Hunt adventure takes players over several blocks in the downtown destination, where they learn answers to a variety of business clues, such as:  What do the 3 dots represent in the Bruxie logo, or who invented the first permanent wave, and what is the temperature of liquid nitrogen used to make fresh ice cream?  When a player visits the store, he or she is given a sticker from that business.  A completed form makes them eligible to win the Grand Prize of $250.00 cash.  A player who completes at least 10 of the clues can win a $10 gift card; entries with 15 stickers can win a $25 gift card and 24 stickers entries are entered to win a $50.00 gift card.  Over $2500 in prizes will awarded to game players.  Entries are returned to Mangiamo Gelato Cafe by 7pm on Sunday, January 31st. Over 100 prizes will be awarded.  The Grand Prize Winner will be announced during Surf City Nights on Tuesday, February 2nd.  More info on their website:  www.hbdowntown.com.

Have you been to OPM yet?  Warner & Magnolia (next to the Jiffy Lube)…. Well if you haven’t, or even if you have and want an excuse to go back, come join a bunch of us at a business mixer Thursday the 21st, 5-7pm.   Very casual.  Simply enjoying the happy hour and visiting.  No cost, just buy what drinks and appetizers you want.  Their food is very good.  I’ve been to their happy hour many times. It is YUM.  (they also have a great Sunday brunch –with a bloody mary bar – can I say yum again).  Anyhow, come join us and mingle with other business folks and enjoy good company.

And finally (for this blast) thisFriday the 22nd is the unveiling of the Big Board at the International Surfing Museum.  10am to 11am.  That is one you don’t want to miss!   And don’t forget, all these events and MUCH more are on the calendar at www.TheLocalHB.com.
