Our Atlanta adventure was more fun than free tickets to the Midtown Music Fest! Teams raced all over Midtown, Georgia Tech and downtown. Teams indulged in delicious ice cream from Frazier’s, played Black Jack wtih Yelp, made a bed at Loew’s Hotel right in the lobby (how cool is that) and tons more!
Wrecking Ball (Miley Cyrus inspires us all), led by Jamie Mattoon and David Horgan, won by the slimmest of margins…1 second! They finished in 1:50:27. Way to go guys!
Best Costume went to Pirates Booty. Their costumes made us want to sail the high seas with them! Permission to come a board and be awesome with you guys! They took home the best portable speakers…yes…Jammy Packs!! For your own portable jams visit the JammyPack online store.
Best Tweet goes to Andy Todd. For this team, every day is Wednesday. Follow Andy and his hump day adventures by clicking on his tweet!
We would like to thank Big Kahuna for hosting our 5th annual Atlanta race. This University of Miami bar has a gigantic TV right above the bar and the Surf Nachos with lump crab and jumbo shrimp are pretty bomb too. Come watch the game or participate in CitySolve Urban Race next year (we’ll be back fo’ sho’!).
