The Weekender - What To Do In L.A. The First Weekend of December
This hunt is not for the meek or the timid. Sponsored by FYF Fest, some of the items off of last year's list included obtaining a dreadlock, a fresh tattoo, a photo kissing a drive-through employee and shaving the team's name into someone's hair. None of the same clues will be repeated this year, but they will be equally outrageous. Prizes for Saturday's six-hour hunt include an all-expense-paid trip to Primavera Sound, a music festival in Barcelona, and the chance for your band to open at FYF Fest next year. Proceeds go to local charities.
$10 entry fee
