PhotoVelo in the Dallas Observer
Sunday, October 16, at Eno’s Pizza Tavern
If you ever had to compete in a scavenger hunt as a kid, you’ll probably remember it wasn’t very difficult. The clues were easy, the objects in plain sight and it was really only a race of speed, which made the scavenging part so unnecessary. Flash forward to now and the grown-up version of that competition really isn’t child’s play. You need mental strength and a strategy to win adult scavenger hunts, and for PhotoVelo you also need a bike. Bike Friendly Oak Cliff is hosting their third annual bicycle photo scavenger hunt in which individuals and teams of two to four cyclists are given a list of items to photograph around Oak Cliff. All you need are your bike, map, a Sharpie and your camera. Oh, plus you need a place to print or develop your pictures, and we can tell you with certitude that Walgreens needs to take down that one-hour photo sign. So if you live in dark ages, have the darkroom ready to go when the race begins at 12:30 p.m. Sunday at Eno’s Pizza Tavern. You can register for free by emailing info@photopolus.com or showing up in person before noon on Sunday, and stay after the race ends at 4 p.m. for live music and an early dinner at Eno’s. The winner of PhotoVelo gets a free meal at Eno’s (up to $75), and second place snags tickets to the DMA. Hey, if you don’t win you got a free workout, so really everyone’s a winner.

And here is a note from the hostess herself:

The official votes have been tallied and it’s looking like the fans of Sat, March 21st have prevailed. I’m incredibly sorry to those that begged and pleaded for a different date. We will miss your contributions to this show. Can’t please all the people all of the time, right? I hope something opens up in your schedules and you are able to join us!

Oh, and keep in mind- even if you can’t participate in the day of hunting, you can still make it to the viewing party that night. AND… if you can’t physically make it to the party, you can still “be there” via Twitter, FaceBook, Myspace, Texting or whatever non-verbal device you know of! If you don’t partake in any of those forms of communication, bring a notepad and a pencil. We ain’t scared of old school. Should be interesting.

More specific details will be announced as the date gets closer, but you should start stretching your hamstrings NOW. I’m super excited, and I can tell that a lot of you lovely folks are, too. See ya soon!!!
