MARCH HIGHLIGHTS: THE FINAL ART OF DARKNESS, 
THE FIRST JUNIOR WIZARDS
 
The end is near! To make room on our schedule for new hunts such as The Dancing Nudes Murder Mystery Hunt, March 2 will be your last chance to do The Art of Darkness Scavenger Hunt. You’ll see the eerie, unnerving, disturbing side of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Warning: The thrills are also chills.
 
Presto change-o! OK, that’s not a Harry Potter spell, but for kids ages 7 to 9 who missed out on our Wizard School Scavenger Hunts (for ages 10 and up) we’ve created an easier edition, The Junior Wizards Hunt, debuting March 28. It’s just one of several kids’ hunts we’re offering that week for Spring Break. See the full schedule below or click below!

ERIN GO HUNT: TOP 5 IRISH SITES & SIGHTS ON HUNTS
 
We’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day by visiting our favorite places and objects on our hunts that reflect the history of the Irish in New York. Here’s our list, in no particular order, and continued in the News section of WatsonAdventures.com
 
Draft Wheel from the Draft Riots: During the Civil War, draftees could pay for substitutes to take their place on the front lines. This didn’t sit too well with the working classes, particularly the Irish, who couldn’t afford to buy their way out of service. On our New York History Mysteries Hunt at the New-York Historical Society, you can see an actual draft wheel that helped officials randomly select names for the draft. This event set off the Draft Riots, one of the worst urban riots in American history. Battles raged in the streets for days, and troops were diverted from Gettysburg to take back the streets. 
 
Old (and new) St. Patrick’s: The Irish finally arrived, of course, and declared it spectacularly by building St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth Avenue, a highlight on our midtown hunts for private groups. The Gothic church replaced the Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Mulberry St., always a startling stop for hunters of the SoHo Chocolatey Hunt as it dips into NoLIta. The older church was nearly sacked in 1836 at the hands of anti-Catholic mobs. A different kind of mob visited when the baptism scene was filmed there for The Godfather.
 
 
HUNT FUN FOR “TAKE YOUR CHILD TO WORK DAY”
 
All work and no play...well, you know the rest. April 25 is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day and in years past, many a company has turned to Watson Adventures for help providing a fun activity that adults and kids can enjoy together.
 
After the kids have toured your workplace, how about taking them on a hunt to explore your neighborhood? Or go farther afield to explore a favorite museum or other landmark location. Learn more about our scavenger hunts for kids and adults to do together.
 
Need to keep the gang inside the office? Companies have had huge success with our Trivia Slam game, where once again the adults and kids play on the same team and have laugh-aloud fun.
 
Either way, a Watson Adventures game can be a great way to show kids the importance of teamwork in all areas of the working world. Get the fun started by calling us at 877-9-GO HUNT, extension 11 for private events, or click on the button below!
