Murray and Sebastian are two of Santa’s not so responsible elves.  They were sent to the city to take care of some last minute holiday chores and have not been heard from since!  Please join us as we follow a trail of their social media posts to try and find out what happened to them so we can get them back to the north pole in time for Christmas!  This will be a fun afternoon of socializing and exploring the city and the holiday decorations.  No experience is necessary. This is a fun and casual way to meet others from our group, learn some history and check out all the holiday decorations.How this works:

  • You will meet the group at The Playwright Irish Pub 4pm sharp.  Your NYSN host will set you up on a team and explain where and what you need to do.
  • Each group will be given a list of clues to follow that will help you determine what happened to the elves.
  • Each team will have 90 minutes to solve the puzzle.  Clues will be between 34th street Herald Square and 50th Street Rockefeller Center. 5th ave and 8th ave.
  • The team that finds the most clues and solves the puzzle wins!
  • Following the hunt most will stick around to socialize eat and drink plus share stories of their adventures or you can head over to the Holiday Party at 230 FiFth for FREE!
PLEASE NOTE: This scavenger hunt is very similar to our Holiday Lights Scavenger Hunt.  The difference is this one has a story and puzzle to follow.

Cost: $20($10 for NYSN VIP Members) includes the Scavenger Hunt Only
