Murder Mystery & Virtual Scavenger Hunt

Online event

*TO ATTEND REGISTER AT - https://dljparty.ticketleap.com/murder-mystery--scavenger-hunt/dates/ (Online game limited to 20 people and this sells out quickly. Multiple Meetup groups are co-organizing so the RSVP's shown are just a small portion of the total members attending). Join our most popular Murder Mystery & Scavenger Hunt! It's an awesome alternative to regular online events and a great way to meet and socialize with others in a safe, fun and unique way! We will put you together with others to trace the crimes which will give you clues to solve what happened. No experience or prior knowledge is needed. The story: Bobby and Lizzy were tired of the Covid lock downs in NYC. They had enough of quarantines and decided to drive across America to get some fresh air and see the sights. As they traveled they got more frustrated to see that things weren’t much different across the country. Somehow their innocent adventure turned them into a modern day Bonnie and Clyde. You will follow their travels and see how they wound up becoming outlaws. All of the American authorities are on the look out for them and you can help! How it works: Register for a ticket and we will send you the Zoom link DAY OF THE EVENT (if you don't see it, please check your spam folder). Once logged in your host will explain the rules and randomly split you into teams (unless you have a team already). If you are registering with someone that will be sharing your Zoom log in please select 2 tickets (or more if you have multiple people playing with you). When the hunt starts we will email the clues page and you will start your online journey. Each group will have 30 minutes to find as many clues as possible. You will use those clues to piece together the answer to the mystery. What do I need? Computer with webcam or tablet/smartphone Can I attend alone? Right now 95% of those participating attend alone. How many are expected? This is a multi-group event so don't pay attention to RSVPs. Most of our virtual events have up to 20 participants unless otherwise specified. How much? $15-$20 depending upon how early you register (and # of spots are available) *P.S. Event organizers are being hit especially hard. We continue to work hard to create fun virtual events for you to participate in and meet new people. We appreciate your support during this trying time.

!! Adventures with Art. An Artistic Deep Dive AKA: A Decent Docent Descent .

Last week was our first Deep Dive. To start out with a good splash we visited to The D'Orsay https://artsandculture.google.com/streetview/musée-d’orsay-paris/KQEnDge3UJkVmw With a focus on this part of the collections https://artsandculture.google.com/search/asset/?p=musee-dorsay-paris&em=m015r61 And then after an intermission we whisked off to San Diego Museum of Art for a nice walk in the sun of California Plein Air https://www.sdmart.org/sdma-360-tour/ https://www.kcet.org/shows/departures/the-california-plein-air-movement All in all a fun social evening where we accidentally learn something together. So we are gonna do it again. Different place. Different theme. Schedule 7:00-8:00 pm: Open Arrival and Open Social. Chit and Chat 7:45-8:00 pm: A little bit of Intro. 8:00-8:45 pm: Location ONE 8:45-9:15 pm: Intermission and Refreshments. Chit and Chat 9:15-10:00 pm: Location TWO What does that mean? It means the main program will start sharp at 8PM. You will need to be ready to go and there BEFORE 8. Ideally . . . you should be there at least by 7:45PM. However . . . The ZOOM will be open starting at 7. Folks will be there and be social and chit and chat. (Spoiler alert: the social thing is kinda important). OK . . . How do I get to go? To Join The Event you MUST fill out this form/link so we have your correct email to email you the Zoom Link on the day of the event. It also asks some other things too. https://forms.gle/HNScXcdCmVeAAJbKA To Join The Event you MUST fill out this form/link (Yes. We did say this twice) This is all sounds great. How much does it cost? Oh yes . . . The cost is FREE! That's a bargain even at twice the price!!!! So why not splurge and come and share your time with us. I know. You just read this whole thing and you are saying to yourself . . ."Self, . . . exactly what will they be covering or doing?" And the answer is simple. at 7:45 we will do some intros of where/what, and at 8 we dive right in. For an online event hopefully you will feel as if you have visited far off places and times. And maybe even see yourself in the those places and scenes. We have been watching other artsy fartsy things being done. They tend to be essentially a power point. When it says "lecture" you better run!! There is no dynamic discussion or engagement. No interaction and no social. AND . . . Most of all . . you really don't visit a place or meet the other people. Just like anything else we do . . . ours will be different. We will come out the other side richer for the experience. Yes. This does mean there is no canned script. Wait!! I just read this and I still do not know where to go. When will I know what places? On the day of the event you will get an email 2 or 3 hours before the event. It will give all that info, plus some other zingers too. For those not aware I do have classical art training, as well as years of working within the art industry with curators, conservators, collectors, artists, museums, studios and institutions. So we will make this all very worthwhile. Our last one had about 70 folks show. Super fun. This event is cross posted to several like-minded groups. The main place coordinating is https://www.meetup.com/NewYorkIsMyOyster/events/275801096/ Good idea to RSVP there as that's where any good comments and conversations get posted. Join us in this Art Adventure Social Soiree. Make some friends while learning and sharing, and sharing some learning. IF you went to our last one you do not need to re-fill-out the google form.

Typically about 75% of the crowd signs up on their own so don't worry if you're by yourself!

If you have someone in the same household as you, they are welcome to sit next to you and play along with you but each device needs to purchase their own ticket. *No more than 2 people can share the same device/screen.
