The Feast of San Genarro is one of NYC’s oldest and largest festivals.  Join us in Little Italy as the streets come alive with food, drink, games, lights, live music and hundreds of vendors with cool things for you to discover with other members of our group. This year you will help the police solve the case of Vinny “The Social Dude” who mysteriously disappeared after attending the feast. Come alone or with friends! We’ll set you up in teams then send you off on a fun and exciting evening with a chance to win great prizes! COVID-19 precautions will be followed (see below).

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

How it works:

-Registration is at 7:00pm at Vincent’s Restaurant
-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 festival 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 to a local bar 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 street fair. Clues are on and in the buildings and festival booths and stages.
