It’s back! The third annual Explore Buffalo Architectural Pursuit returns on Aug. 20. Look high, look low, and look straight ahead and right under your nose to find unique architectural details and historic trivia. This year, the popular scavenger hunt will be searching the Theater District for architectural clues. The highest scored team wins, but all participants get to enjoy a post-hunt party at Cabaret, 490 Pearl St., Buffalo.
Arrive at Cabaret between 12:30 and 12:45 p.m. to check in with your team. Instructions will be given at 12:50 p.m., and at 1 p.m. teams will be released to begin searching.
Return to Cabaret by 4 p.m. or penalty points for being late will be assessed! While the points are being tallied, enjoy a light dinner from the following options: 8 oz. Angus Burger with French Fries; Chicken Sandwich with Spinach, Provolone, Lettuce, Tomato and French Fries; or a Vegetarian Wrap with Roasted Vegetables, Provolone, Lettuce, Tomato and Basil Mayo. Please select your choice when you register. There will be a cash bar available with happy hour prices. Once the points have been tallied, winners will be announced and prizes distributed!
General admission is $25, or $20 for Explore Buffalo Explorer Pass holders. Reservations are required; reserve now as reservations cannot be accepted the week of the tour.
Each team may have two to five participants, and teams must stay together throughout the entire event. This is a walking scavenger hunt; no bikes, cars or other means of transportation allowed. You may, however, use the free-fare Metro Rail. Social media challenges for bonus prizes will be included, so be sure to charge your cell phone!
