'80s Scavenger Hunt & Pub Crawl returns to Tampa Bay



2010 Scavenger Hunt/FacebookEighties fans don't need a reason to dress up in the garb of our favorite decade, swill some wine-coolers and fiddle with the memories of our youth. But turn it into a fundraiser and -- like totally awesome -- we are so there!

On Saturday, July 23, the 2nd annual Back to the '80s Scavenger Hunt and Pub Crawl returns to downtown Dunedin. The event raises funds for the Family Network on Disabilities. So that's one good reason to attend. Need another? My favorite '80s cover band Rubix Cubed will make a special appearance.

The cost depends on the number of members in your team: $50 for a team of 2-3 members, $60 for a team of 4 members, and $75 for a team of 5 members. You can pre-register online at but on-site registration will be available on Saturday. If you want to skip the scavenger hunt, the pub crawl is $15 per person. Check out photos from last year's event on the official Facebook page.
