Tours started this past weekend.
Kevin Hindley, who founded the company with his wife, Elizabeth, said the first weekend went well for Food Done It? on the North Shore.
“A group of friends on Saturday, and an intergenerational family group celebrating a birthday on Sunday,” he said. “They all gave very positive feedback and created lots of happy memories.”
How it works is this: Groups sign up for a tour that starts at a local restaurant, where they’re challenged to solve a crime by tackling a series of clues that take them from location to location.
And there is a lot of eating along the way.
“We have to emphasize that people pace themselves,” Elizabeth Hindley previously told GreaterPatchogue.
Food Done It? debuted in September 2017 and this past January the company launched a second mystery challenge for foodies in Patchogue Village.
The first tour they created involves deciphering a series of clues and answering trivia to figure out who stole an engagement ring. That tour is called The Cupcake Conundrum.
That same mystery, along with a second tour called Fire & Ice, is also now available for solving in Huntington.
The tours also help local restaurants with exposure to new clientele, the Hindleys and local restaurant owners have told us.
“Our new partners are terrific hosts and we look forward to bringing lots of new exposure to Huntington’s thriving main street,” Kevin said.
Food Done It? is also working on a spooky new tour that will be introduced to both Long Island markets this fall, he said.
“Could it involve the ghost of a recently deceased character from one of our other adventures? Stay tuned!”
