Ever thought you’d be PERFECT for the cat and mouse reality show Amazing Race? Perhaps the whole camera in your face thing made you think twice about it though. Take those hunting skills and put them to use at Houston’s CitySolve Urban Race happening Saturday, February 18, 12:00 – 5:00 p.m.
So, what exactly is CitySolve? It’s a combination of scavenger hunt and Trivial Pursuit. Teams of 2-4 gather at the starting line and have to solve clues to find the next location, complete a task (like taking a shot), solve another clue and move on until they hit the finish line. Brush up on your Houston history as the clues are all about H-town and the only means of trasnspo you can use is Houston’s own, or your own two feet. Incentive? Oh a big-ole cash prize at the end if you win (not to mention hours of fun bouncing from bars in Midtown, Montrose, and Eado with your pals).
Here’s a sneak peek at what the questions look like:
Clue: Don’t You Forget About Me… Possibly the best high school movie ever, this flick doesn’t star The Rat Pack, but famous teenagers whose group name rhymes with Sinatra’s. Think you got it figured out? Great! Now head to the establishment located on a street named for a famous William who lost his life at The Alamo.
