Riddle’s pop-up escape-booth:
Riddle is the first and only Escape-Room here on Cape Cod. Located at 61 Market Street (near the Organic Market and Cape Cod Coffee), Riddle consists of six different games. An Escape Room (also known as Escape Game, Mystery Room) is a live action adventure game where players have 60 minutes to work together as a team to complete a mission by solving a series of puzzles, riddles and connecting clues. Each of the six games at Riddle has a unique theme with puzzles integrated into the storyline. Participants must use their wit, creativity, inquisitiveness, problem-solving skills and teamwork to successfully complete the mission. Get a taste of the Riddle experience this weekend during their pop-up “Hot-Seat” escape booth event, located in Central Square near the Red Balloon Toy Shop & Ghelfi’s Candies. Tickets are $5 and participants get 3 tries to complete the game. Winners are entered into a raffle to win 2 tickets to one of Riddle’s 60 minute escape rooms.

Riddle is co-owned and created by Nicole Merriman and Ashley Carr, also co-owners of Hot Diggity. For more information, visit their website or give them a ring at 508-648-7664.

Paint Parties at the Cape Cod Art Bar:
Paint a masterpiece and bring it home with you the same night at The Cape Cod Art Bar. No Experience needed, they provide all art materials, step-by-step instructions led by a professional artist, aprons, cups, plates, napkins, corkscrews, and bottle openers. The events are BYOB (bring your own beverage) so don’t forget your favorite wine or beer (for those age 21 and over). Guests should arrive 15 minutes prior to scheduled class time, as events will begin promptly as scheduled. We suggest booking your reservation in advance, as many of their classes do sell out. You can reserve your space on their website or by calling the art bar at 508-477-ARTT (2788).

Classes this weekend include Summer Dune, May 26th, 7pm and painting with Haley Rae on Monday, May 28th at 12pm.
