Do you love the local food scene? Like solving riddles? Want to meet some of Raleigh’s top culinary talent?

CurEat App, which allows you to see and share lists of great, independently owned restaurants and bars, is organizing its first
CurEat Raleigh Scavenger Hunt and an after-party on Saturday, March 30th, with all proceeds benefiting the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle’s Agriculture Education Program. Expect an amazing day filled with riddles and surprise food and drink offerings at each stop, culminating with a team and public donor party at Transfer Co. Food Hall.

Sounds great, sign me up! 12 teams will compete in the Scavenger Hunt, and registration is officially open. Visit to register your team. When you register, you will be the team captain and CurEat will send a special code for you to add three teammates (teams are limited to four). Registration costs $100 per person which goes toward each team’s fundraising goal of $2000. Teams that raise more can unlock additional clues throughout the event.

How do you win? The registered teams will receive an emailed announcement prior to the event for the first clue, so download the CurEat App and sign up with your email. Clues will be released as they’re solved. The first team to successfully solve all the riddles wins the grand prize.

What’s the grand prize? Four round-trip airfare vouchers to Nashville and accommodations at 21C Nashville for three days and two nights, plus certificates to select restaurants.

What if all the spots are full? You can still buy a ticket to the after-party and/or donate to teams.

What happens at the after-party? Fun giveaways, live music and a pig pickin’ with Sam Jones, a top NC pitmaster who’s opening a new barbecue restaurant in Raleigh. Happy hunting!
