#HipsterHunt2015

In order to highlight coworking month (August) and to celebrate our first anniversary, Work Nimbly is hosting a scavenger hunt!  

The hunt starts with a list with three tiers of points possible for each business. Teams will try to earn as many points as possible completing tasks like visiting stores and businesses, researching on websites or Facebook pages, and sharing pictures and posts on social media.

How to play:

  1. Grab a hunting guide from one of the participating businesses, or by clicking here.  Fill out the team information.
  2. Complete as many challenges as you can between August 31 and September 13.  Don’t forget to tag your challenge submissions with #HipsterHunt2015
  3. Bring your team’s hunting guide to Work Nimbly by Midnight on September 13.  (Use the mail slot in the door for after hours submissions.)

The team with the most points wins dinner for four
at the Blue Talon Bistro and tickets to the Gallery Crawl.
