This weekend, bring out your inner Sherlock Holmes and be rewarded with some delicious food at the end. `
City-based Paprika Idea Labs, a company that creates offbeat events, have come up with a treasure hunt with food as the focus. On the clues trail are ten eateries in Bandra including Out of the Blue, Hokey Pokey, Star Anise, Bombay Coffee House, Dr Bubbles, The Village Shop, Di Bella, Me so Happi and Wok express.
“We have always done food-related events before, like the Itsy Bitsy Food Festival and The Barathon, as we’ve found people enjoy those the most,” says Rajnish Rawat, 45, founder of a year-old Paprika Idea Labs.
The event will begin at Bombay Coffee House where each participant will be given a map containing clues in the form of puzzles or crosswords. Once they solve these, they have to go the areas located on the maps to submit them. Each correct answer gives them the next clue and some goodies at that outlet. “The winner of the hunt will be the person who is the first to reach the last spot on the list after visiting all the food places and having all the correct clues,” adds Rawat.
Participation is individual, there are no teams.
