Thank you Chicago for taking part in the Gadling scavenger hunt!

Last night’s first ever Gadling scavenger hunt was a great success. In total, we handed out over $2000 in prizes to more than 20 participants, and judging by the smiles, hugs, free beer and kisses, the prizes went down quite well. Wear those Gadling T-shirts with pride!

Thanks to Piece Brewery and Pizzeria for hosting us, and not minding our massive boxes of swag taking up so much space! But most of all, many thanks to everyone that followed our cryptic and not-so-cryptic tweets, directing them to the secret location. And of course, a very special shoutout to Eye-Fi and Office Depot for providing most of the amazing prizes.

We’ll be doing more of these this summer, so pay close attention to the Gadling Twitter feed – and don’t worry, other cities will not be ignored!
