Event Details

Here's your chance to show off your mad geek skills while trekking around San Francisco's Noe Valley with your friends and your smart phone. 


It works like this:

Arrive on time at the auditorium at Alvarado Elementary School (entrance is on 22nd between Douglass and Eureka).  Check in runs from 5:15 to 6:00.  At 6:00 pm sharp participants will be given a map with some challenging clues to decipher.  Deciphering those clues will lead you to various locations in Noe Valley. When you arrive at the mystery location, you take a photo of the answer with your phone and email it back to an address provided at the beginning of the event.  The first team to complete the clues will be the winner.

Why: For fun, mostly.  And prizes.   And also because all money raised goes toward improving  technology for students at Alvarado Elementary.  That means your ticket price is tax-deductible.

Did you say prizes? Thanks to Geeknet and EA Games for providing prizes; and to the aquapreneurs at Metromint and David Rio who are providing liquid refreshment.  We also now have free Bon Jovi tickets, which come as part of the Radio Alice gift pack, courtesty of the Sarah & Vinnie Show.  This is for the Feb. 22 show in San Jose.

Cost: The fee is $50 for a team of up to 4 and $75 for a team of up to 6.  A bargain for memories that will last a lifetime.  Don't forget to come up with a great team name.  Be creative; you might get bonus points.

Rules: You’ll need a phone that can take a picture and send email.  Be on time, or you’ll be screwed behind your fellow competitors.  Teams have to stick together.  Stay on foot.  Bring a flashlight (or flashlight app). Charge up your phone batteries.  Respect the neighborhood.

The Tech Search Party will conclude at the Dubliner on 24th near Church.  The winning team gets a free round of drinks; each team gets one free drink; and everyone gets to see the answers.

Does the Dubliner location mean there's a James Joyce clue in the works.  We're not saying...
