Join us in Little Italy as the streets come alive with food, drink, music and murder!  Help the police solve the case of Vinny “The Social Dude” who mysteriously disappeared after attending a party at a local restaurant. Come alone or with friends and we’ll set you up in teams then send you off on a fun and exciting evening with a chance to win great prizes!

The Story:  Vinny The Social Dude is an old school neighborhood guy who grew up in Brooklyn. He loved hanging out in Little Italy. He would spend the day meeting old friends, eating, drinking and trying to score points with the ladies.  This trip was just like every other until Vinny disappeared!  You will need to retrace his steps from that day to find out what happened to Vinny!  (It is all in good fun, nothing gruesome!)

How it works:

-Registration is at 7pm at the Mulberry Street Bar
-When you arrive, we will randomly team you up with 4-6 others (unless you join with a team) then send you out into the streets with clues that you will need to find along the way (each team will have 1 hour to complete the task). You will use those clues to figure out what happened to Vinny.
-After you have found all the clues or your time has run out, you will head back to the Mulberry Street Bar for socializing, food and drink.
-Teams are limited to 4-6 people.

You can stop to eat or drink along the way or wait and have a bite at the final destination bar/restaurant where the group will be set up to enjoy socializing and fun stories from the hunt.

What things are we looking for?  The clues are things that are part of the history of Little Italy and the buildings. Clues are on and in the buildings, restaurants, shops and all around the streets.

Experience Level: None needed

Cost: $25 General Admission / $20 Lifetime VIPs. Includes hunt only.

Recommended ages:  21+.  The majority of this group is usually 30s and 40s but it is open to all. There will be people in their 20s & 50s so you will feel right at home.

Can I come alone? Yes, most guests do! It’s a great way to meet new people.
