Scavenger Hunt

Come find me.

You like Waikiki.

You like drinking.

You like scavenger hunts.

You like supporting charities.

You like children.

You don’t like cancer.

This Sunday evening, you can combine those passions in two hours of cocktail-infused bacchanalia in the 1st Annual Waikiki Cocktail Scavenger Hunt, a benefit for the Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation organized by The United States Bartenders Guild Hawaii Chapter, the super secret quorum of mixed drink mavens dedicated to stomping out injustice in world and making decidedly excellent cocktails in the process (I may have taken some liberties with that description, but they do make excellent cocktails).

Participants enter in teams of four. Each team is given a list of ten drinks and 10-15 bars and, over the next two hours, needs to connect each cocktail with its bar. The team must buy the drink at the bar (one drink required, more admired), keep the receipt, and take a photo of all receipts at the end of the hunt. Whole teams must be present for each drink. The team that finds all ten drinks the fastest (or most in two hours) wins.

Free cocktails will be provided at Nobu during check-in and various prizes (Nobu, Halekulani, and Apartment3 gift cards, liquor, bar tools, and more!) will be awarded at the end of the night.

The entry fee is $100 per team and proceeds benefit the Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation. To enter, RSVP by this Friday, March 18th to Chandra Lam at clam@southernwine.com or (808) 256-4561.

Support the fight against children’s cancer; drink incredible drinks; meet bartending superstars dedicated to stomping out injustice in the world (or, at least, making excellent cocktails); and have a legitimate excuse for tearing around Waikiki like Charlie Sheen’s bachelor party.

Needless to say, I’ll see you on Sunday.
