The Hunt for the Red October Lobster

Saturday, October 24, 2015
Hunt begins at 5:30pm.

Join NCDC for the Hunt for the Red October Lobster Hunt on Saturday, October 24th! Every year one of our great supporters, Ed Wagner, puts together this fun event to benefit NCDC in the fall. This is a fun bar hop, a claw crawl, if you will, to celebrate the fall. Teams of one-to-whatever compete in different contests for really cool lobster medals and stuff. You are free to compete in whichever (or all) of the contests you want, while enjoying the evening. The hunt begins at Tir Na Nog (1600 Arch Street). Teams should arrive sometime before 5:30pm (you can start later, but let us know first!).

At 5:30pm, instructions and details will be given. You’ll play games, solve puzzles and wheel n’ deal with other teams at Tir Na Nog, Con Murphy’s and finally City Tap House Logan. Teams set their own schedule based on which contests they are competing in, so you can crawl at your own speed. Top teams get medals! The cost is $25 per team member. Purchase tickets HERE!

Contests this year (choose to participate in any combination!):

  • Team attire contest – think red, October and/or lobster!
  • Photo hunt – bring that camera
  • Trivia – know your red, October & lobster facts
  • Lobster puzzles and riddles to solve for prizes and glory
  • Fun and challenging contests to prove your skill – or luck
  • Collaborative contest – work with other teams – to win
  • And a hidden contest!

Recommended items:

  • Pen or pencil, and notepad
  • Digital camera for use in photo hunt (with a display big enough to actually see the photo!)
  • Flashlight (it will be dark outside!)
  • Smart phone (at least one per team) for text messages
  • Funds to purchase food, drink & stuff during the hunt

So, grab a partner or two or more, dress for the weather (you will be outside occasionally!) and get ready to Hunt for the Red October Lobster! The event is open to everyone, but it is recommended that all team members be over 21 (all the indoor stops are bars).
