You will not look at the famous holiday decorations in the same way!  Join us for this fun afternoon of exploring, socializing, and holiday spirit as you set out to visit and find clues that are a part of the famous holiday decorations from Herald Square to Rock Center.  Along the way you will also learn some interesting historical facts about the city that you live in.  The group will meet at a bar at Grand Central, head out for the hunt then return to the same bar for food and drinks.Here is how it works:

-Arrive at “The Bar” Located in The Great Northern Food Hall in Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central.  If you don’t have a team we will set you up with other fun people.  98% of those attending will be coming on their own. That is just inside the main entrance under the park avenue overpass.
-After you are set up on a team we will send you out for 90 minutes to find as many of the clues as you can.
-Teams return to The Bar for food and drinks as we tally up the scores and announce the winners.
-Following the hunt stay at The Bar and socialize.

What will we be looking for?  You will be looking for clues that are part of the famous holiday decorations that are between Herald Square and Rockefeller Center (how many nutcrackers are in Rock Center, what color are the ball on the Bryant Park Tree,  How many elves in the Macy’s Windows, etc)  You will also have to look for other historical clues that are part of the history of NYC!

Can I come alone?  Yes 98% of those attending will likely come on their own.  If you don’t have a team we will set you up with other fun people.
