The taste of victory? Delicious!

Food Tour Munch HuntersImagine a food tour of a neighborhood, full of fascinating facts about the gourmet restaurants and shops and local history, where you get to choose from a variety of places to stop and grab savory or sweet samples—and it’s all part of a game? That only begins to describe the fun on a Watson Adventures “Munch” Scavenger Hunt. It’s a great team building activity that satisfies your hunger for adventure.

In the course of 90 minutes to two hours your team will follow a trail of clues and answer fun, tricky questions about the places and sights you discover. Along the way you’ll find great gourmet stops, and you’ll also be challenged to pick up snacks at a number of recommended locations and document your delectation with a creative team photo.

A sample question from a Munch Hunt

On MacDougal Street in Greenwich Village, where New York University’s law school stands, Maria’s opened in 1892 and became the Village’s most popular Italian restaurant, where “bohemians” dined on chicken and spaghetti. Across the street, three buildings remain that were built (supposedly) for Aaron Burr in 1829. Out front, one exhibits food that was once a symbol of hospitality because it was an edible item hard to come by and often crowned lavish displays at parties. How many of these symbols are still here?  Answer: There are three decorative pineapples outside the buildings. 

Available in seven cities
