Instead of spending $50 on a night out, grab three friends and register a team for CurEat’s Raleigh Scavenger Hunt, an interactive foodie experience and Inter-Faith Food Shuttle fundraiser organized by restaurant discovery app CurEat.
On March 30, you’ll fuel up with treats from Boulted Bread and Slingshot Coffee Co., then hunt for clues and solve riddles at each stop while sampling bites and sips from some of Raleigh’s top food and beverage talent (rumor has it that some of them will make surprise cameos, too). The team that solves all the riddles first wins a three-day, two-night trip to Nashville with a stay at 21c Museum Hotel. Prizes will also be awarded to second- and third-place finishers as well as the highest fundraiser (plus, the more money you raise, the more hints you get throughout the event). The day will culminate with an after-party at Transfer Co. Food Hall, featuring barbecue from legendary pitmaster Sam Jones, fixings from Longleaf Swine BBQ, drinks at Transfer Co. Food Hall’s Bar, plus a cocktail from Copper & Kings and a cider tasting from Stem Cider.
Registration for the hunt is $50 per person and goes toward your team’s fundraising goal of $1,000 and includes a ticket to the after-party. Just want to hit up the after-party? Tickets are $65 in advance, $75 at the door. Proceeds from both the scavenger hunt and after-party will benefit the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle Agriculture Education Program, whose mission is to teach sustainable food production and nutritious meal preparation, promote the establishment of gardens to increase healthy food access (they currently maintain two urban gardens: a demonstration garden on Geer Street in Durham and a community garden on Camden Street in Raleigh), and develop sustainable community food system models.
Registration ends on Friday, March 1. Teams that are fully registered by Friday, February 15, will unlock an extra clue during the scavenger hunt. Can’t make it? You can still donate to teams or make an individual donation to help CurEat meet its $50,000 fundraising goal.
