The 2012 Foodie Photo Scavenger Hunt (Sponsored By The Culinary Institute of America) Starts Now

On your marks…get set….

Ok, wait! Before you get started scavenger hunting, I need to tell you a few things about the 2012 Foodie Photo Scavenger Hunt. First: choose your partner wisely.

Two Things

1. Check out the new banner by Lindy Groening. If you have bee allergies, my apologies; there’s an epinephrine autoinjector for you on the bottom right of the page. (Hey: I’ve seen “My Girl.”)

2. Tomorrow begins the 2012 Foodie Photo Scavenger Hunt (with over $3500 in prizes from the CIA). I’m posting the list at 5 PM E.S.T. and you have until Sunday at midnight to complete it. In the meantime, if you’re on Twitter, check out the hashtag #foodiephotohunt. That’ll be important during the hunt for an opportunity to score some bonus points by finding other teams in your area. And if you have any questions, ask them with that hashtag and I’ll be sure to answer them. Now e-mail your friends and find a partner, quick!
