Final Clue for Hunt in the 216!

25 Nov

Here it is…  The final clue for the first ever DU Hunt in the 216!

In the heart of downtown this time I will stay,
On this glorious, victorious, final clue day.
To a street formerly known as Sheriff I will go,
And find a place that sells a “crush”, and the stuff we call Joe.

Then I’m gonna book it to DU and win!

Remember, the first person to relay the message on the puzzle pieces wins $100 gift card, and gets to name a piece from the DU S12 line, and get that piece in his or her size when the line is released.  No phone calls, you must be here in person to win…

Also, anyone that comes in with the completed message after the winner gets 20% their entire purchase at the DU today!

The city of Cleveland was also kind enough to offer free metered parking downtown today in honor of the release of today’s final clue!

Good luck and Happy Hunting!!!

Hunt in the 216 Clue #3

21 Nov

Here is the third clue for the epic saga that has become Hunt in the 216!

From the heart of downtown a bit South I would travel,
To trees and grass where nearby clues would unravel.
This open air space in honor of old Abe,
Has as its neighbor a beanery in its shade.

Be the first person to know what all 4 puzzle pieces say and share that with a member of the DU staff to win!  Be kind to your fellow competitors…  If you find the last puzzle piece in any location, just write down its message and leave it for the next person.  Or maybe not.  Depends on how bad you want to win.  Haha.

The final clue will be released on Friday morning at 10am.  Something tells me there is going to be a “foot race”.

Good Luck!

DU Hunt in the 216 Clue #2

17 Nov

Here the second clue for the DU Hunt in the 216:

From the heart of downtown East I must go,
To see an independent moving picture show.
Next to the theater stands an Irishman’s bar,
within it a cigarette machine, to the back but not far.

We’re also sweetening the pot by adding to the grand prize.  In addition to a $100 gift card to the Dredgers Union, the winner will also get to name a style from the upcoming DU Spring 12 line, and get a free piece in his or her size!

Remember, to win you must be the first person to know what all four of the puzzle pieces are, and then relay that information to a member of the DU staff.  The next clue will be released on Monday at 11am.

Good Luck and Happy Hunting!

DU Hunt in the 216 Clue #1

14 Nov

Here is the first clue that will lead to the first piece of the puzzle for the Hunt in the 216:

From the heart of downtown I headed due West.
I was craving a hot dog, and wanted the best.
After 58 blocks I entered this place,
and saw a peculiar bulletin space…

Use this clue to lead you to the first piece of the puzzle.  Collect the piece, or write down it’s message as you will need to know what all 4 puzzle pieces say to win.

Remember, 14 Days, 4 Clues, and 1 Grand Prize! Be the first to put all the pieces of the puzzle together and you win!

The next clue will be posted this Thursday at 11am.  Improve your chances of winning by keeping any puzzle pieces that you find a secret.

Good Luck!

25 Oct

We adore our neighbors across the way at Greenhouse Tavern, and last week for Cleveland Beer Week they gave us yet another reason to love them more.

It’s been years since Three Floyds Brewing has been able to send their delicious brew into Ohio and in honor of them coming back, the lovelies over at Greenhouse decided to have a wildly extravagant evening of food and beer pairings prepared by two of Food & Wines Best New Chefs, Jonathon Sawyer of GH and Michael Sheerin of Three Floyds brew pub.  The night started with an array of fried snacks aka Best of Deep Fryer, including scotched quail eggs and stuffed padron peppers served with Gumball Head pale wheat beer.  The place was filled to the brim with foodies and beer lovers who wigged out over the appetizers but somehow managed to save a little room for the five courses to follow.

Dinner was, in true Greenhouse style, enormous in size and taste.  From duck ”mittens”, smoked sturgeon and beef shin(check the photo with a quarter for scale, wha!?!?!) to stuffed peppers and wild mushroom fregola for the vegetarians. Everything was phenomenal and perfect with the Three Floyds beer.   The finale was some of the best and most creative doughnuts any of us have ever had, coconut cream and fruity pebbles and pb&j, to name a few.
