Looking at our lineup of San Diego Metro Hunt prize sponsors makes us wish that we could participate in the event ourselves, or at least go raiding the goodie bags. Above and beyond the amazing grand prize of a trip to Fiji for the International Jazz & Blues Festival, there are a slew of other super-desirable prizes up for grabs.
A couple hours up the coast from San Diego — perfect for a daytrip — Shutters on the Beach is a favorite LA hideaway. The charming Santa Monica retreat combines the perfect blend of surfside-sunny and celeb chic. Metro Hunt winners of the Shutters “All in One” package get a full day to lounge about the property, with a 60-minute massage, lunch at Coast, and complimentary valet parking.
We’re very pleased to introduce FIJI fans to upscale footwear brand Donald & Lisa Pliner, a line of elegant, meticulously crafted styles by this husband-and-wife duo. For men, the brand is great with the classics: driving shoes, Oxfords, loafers, and suede boots. Women’s styles range from platform wedges to sexy pumps to booties with a five-inch heel. Lisa gets extra props for designing a women’s collection that actually delivers comfort as well as style. Metro Hunt contestants will have a chance to win $200-$400 gift certificates from Pliner—a fashionista’s call-to-action if ever there was one.
Our yummiest prize sponsor to date is local to San Diego, but their reputation among organic and artisanal foodies has outgrown county borders. Chuao Chocolatier was founded by two Venezuelan brothers who use rare Venezuelan cacao as the base for wonderfully creative, savory-spicy-sweet confections such as “Firecracker” truffles (chipotle-infused caramel fudge) and green tea-infused ginger ganache. Are your mouths watering yet?
Stay tuned for more Metro Hunt posts as we approach game day, April 16. We’ll spotlight some of the host venues on the event route, introduce you to a few of the teams that will be competing, and dish more on our two biggest prizes.
We might even give away a ticket or two, so that in addition to reading, you can join in the fun and compete to win.
