We were a little nervous about hosting the hunt on Good Friday, but holy easter eggs were we impressed! Over 480 people joined the event - more than any year before - and raised over $8,500 for GRN's work in the Gulf! A big thanks to Publiq House and especially NOLA Brewing for making such a great day possible!
The hunt began at NOLA Brewing's Tap Room, where we sent the crowd off with the first clue at 2:30. The teams found their way through the Garden District, along St Charles and into Uptown. Some people were stumped along the way, but found the trail to Publiq House where hot crawfish and free beer awaited.
The Quickening got the party started, followed by The Colin Lake Band who rocked us through the evening. Teams like the Easter Baskets, Bad Eggs, and the Carrot Hare'm came up with crazy costumes this year, impressing even us judges, so the competition was tough.
Thanks to everyone who joined us for the hunt, we can't wait for next year!
