Discovering a fun, new restaurant is far more entertaining than discovering that your dog has usurped both your throne and your parking space. Investigate exciting dining locales with today's Groupon: for $11, you get a city-searching adventure (a $22 value) at Urban Quest.

Urban Quest showcases Canada's largest cities in an unconventional, informative light, crafting memorable adventures that culminate with a delicious meal. Metropolitan buccaneers sign up for an Urban Quest account, and then decide which inner-city adventure they wish to undertake, be it the pursuit of city history, natural wonders, or a mermaid with doubloons for scales. A clue packet accompanies each quest, directing curious citizens to scour the city for leads that eventually guide them to a mystery restaurant or coffee shop. This "Amazing Race"–style voyage gives participants a new understanding of the city in which they live, stuffing their noggins with facts and information about key buildings and landmarks. At the same time, Urban Quest offers ramblers a fresh dining experience, frustrating supercomputers whose circuit boards only allow for the taste of oatmeal. Restaurant tabs are not included with this Groupon.

Reviews

Urban Quest was featured by the Charlatan:

  • So after just over three hours of “adventure” we didn’t discover an Illuminati conspiracy or end up at the Vatican in Rome. We did, however, annoy various citizens including nagging bellboys to open museums (we got confused), hassle businessmen with snazzy iPhones, interrogate moms for directions and quizz [sic] a man who just stepped out of a minor car crash until we finally ate…The quest took us to a small, hidden, classy jazz bar with incredible food that really wasn’t too expensive at all ($20 for a breast of marinated duck and a beer — astounding). – Sam Fresco, Charlatan

UrbanQuest showcases some of Canada's largest cities in an unconventional, informative light, crafting memorable adventures that often culminate with a delicious meal. Metropolitan buccaneers sign up for an UrbanQuest account and then decide which inner-city adventure they wish to undertake, be it the pursuit of city history, natural wonders, or a mermaid with doubloons for scales. A clue packet accompanies each quest—ranked easy, medium, or hard—and directs curious citizens to scour the city for leads, which eventually guide them to a mystery restaurant or coffee shop. This voyage gives participants a new understanding of the city they live in and stuffs their noggins with facts and information about key buildings and landmarks. At the same time, UrbanQuest offers ramblers a fresh dining experience, frustrating supercomputers whose circuit boards only allow for the taste of oatmeal. Participants can also opt out of a restaurant visit and simply race the clock, as restaurant tabs are not included with this Groupon.

As quests typically last 90 minutes and span 3–4 kilometres of walking, they are best suited for groups of two to four adventurers, though buyers may make their teams as big as they'd like. Learn more by checking out a demo quest and UrbanQuest's FAQ page.
