QUIZ – What Lies Beneath #4

Our answer is posted after the jump! :)

*************
We’re heading a little outside of the city today and down to Long Beach! The rest of the game works the same as usual… below is a spot on a google map. Today we’re thinking of a specific *reason* that this location is notable (other than the general business it currently does every day). Within 24 hours we’ll give you the full details… but as usual, we’re going to give you a little time to guess what we’re referring to first. If you know the answer right away please try not to announce it too quickly and ruin the game for the people who don’t. No hints today, either!

Okay… here you go!

HLA EVENT – Be Our Accomplice!

What would Neil Patrick Harris do? Well, we can guarantee you that he would tell you to read the following post very carefully and do *exactly* as it says within the next four days, and nobody will get hurt…

accompliceHiddenLA and the wonderful people of Accomplice would like to invite you to join us and experience one of the most fun things going on the streets of Hollywood! (Scroll down to read more information.)

For the next four days (March 22-25), use the code HIDDENLA during checkout for a $20 discount on each ticket. While the discount code is valid for any future date, Sunday, April 11th is Accomplice’s official Hidden Los Angeles Day. For that date, Accomplice will ONLY be accepting reservations from HiddenLA fans… 80 people in all. Tickets should go fast so hurry up and RSVP! The show itself features light drinks and food, but we’ll be holding a no-host day-long cocktail gathering for all our participating HLA fans to hang out together and share their experiences when the show is over! Good times. No, seriously, this will definitely be good times. NPH wouldn’t steer you wrong and neither would we. (more…)


CONTEST – Scavenge for Wine at Farmer’s Market!!!

NOTE: THE HUNT IS ON UNTIL 8:45PM OR SO ON FRIDAY AND TOMORROW MORNING UNTIL PRIZES RUN OUT!!!
Hey you lushy HLAers of legal drinking age!!!! Guess what? We have THREE pairs of tickets to give away to this weekend’s Spring Wine Fest at Farmer’s Market. WOO HOO!!! (For more info, see flyer after the jump)

hardyboysAs usual we aren’t about to just HAND them to you though… you’ve gotta WORK for your vino, people! So here’s the deal… between now and the start of the Wine Fest (Saturday at 1pm sharp!), there’s a scavenger hunt goin’ down at Farmer’s Market. There will be four clues to solve. We will give you the first, and when you solve it, you will find the second… which will lead to the third… and… oh, you get the idea.
The first people to solve all four will win tickets to the event (a $60 value!). Only ONE pair of tickets per group please, because we want everyone to have a chance. I’m told if the tickets are already claimed when you solve the fourth clue you will *still* receive a consolation prize though, so EVERYBODY WINS!
Ready to put your thinking caps on and head on over to Third and Fairfax? Okay, here’s clue number one…

cupcakeWith this site going from 3,000 Facebook fans to now over 100,000 in a matter of days… I can honestly say I’ve never felt so much Valentine’s Day love flowing through this city my life. It suddenly hit me this morning… OUR HIDDEN LOS ANGELES FRIENDS COULDN’T FIT IN THE ROSE BOWL. Yeah, that was about when I had a nervous breakdown, and wished I would get off my butt to get all of you to give me a dollar. :)

Anyhoo, in honor of Valentine’s Day and as a very sincere thank you to our local fans in particular for their support, the very fabulous Vincent at the (very hidden!) Bluebird Cafe in Culver City has kindly offered to help us spread a little love your way. During the rest of February, if you walk into the Bluebird Cafe and tell Vincent that HiddenLA sent you, he’ll give you a free cupcake. Naturally I hope you’ll stay and have other food and maybe a glass of wine or something, but either way. Free cupcake. From us. Try the red velvet.

Happy Valentine’s Day, Los Angeles!!! WE LOVE YOU! :D

You’ll discover some of the oldest – and newest – sites in downtown L.A. as you solve cryptic clues and brain-teasing puzzles in this iconic urban adventure through L.A.’s past, present and future. This hunt is challenging.
