Scanvenger Hunt in Boston

I got this idea from a few different meetups. It's wicked fun and helps you discover the city more.

There will be teams of 5. We will all start at the same area.and end up at a restaurant. There will be a few other meetup groups joining us. People must have a phone that can take and send pictures & videos for proof of the activities. There will be points and all members must do it for your team to earn points! I ask everyone to put in $20. The winning team will get the money!

We will meet at the Frog Pond in the Boston Commons at 11am. Here are the things that need to be found in the Scavenger Hunt:
----
-Give a Police office a high five (5 pts)
-Hug a random bald man (10 pts)
-Dance with an old Asian woman (15 pts)
-Go to the Mayor's office and do a 10 second dance in the lobby (video) (25 pts)
