Warm clothes, check. Umbrella, check. Camera, Red Bull and Blackberry….check, check, check. Scavenger hunt list?

There are lots of things to do and see this October 3 but if walking around the downtown core checking out art installments doesn’t turn your crank then throw a little fun into the mix. Make the night a pub crawl and challenge your friends to find and do things along the way to make the walk from each Nuit Blanche exhibit a little more interesting.

The Scavenger Hunt Challenge
Here’s how it works:

During the course of the nuit, have your friends try to find/do the objects and activities listed below. 

If you accomplish 5 of the listed items, you get to veto an installment you would rather pass by. If there is more than one person who accomplishes five tasks, take turns choosing which exhibits you would like to go to. 

Accomplish 10 things and the person gets to choose which bar he/she would like to go to next and the group has to buy him or her a shot.

Accomplish 15 of the items on the list and everyone in the group has to buy that person a shot. 

Work in teams or compete as individuals against each other.
