Do the Gumshoe and follow clues around Phinney-Greenwood

The annual Gumshoe neighborhood scavenger hunt is back with 30 new clues on the 5K walk throughout Greenwood and Phinney Ridge. The $20 entry fee ($15 each if you buy two or more) is donated to the Greenwood Senior Center, Greenwood Food Bank and Greenwood Elementary PTA.

The Gumshoe also includes the Eatsy Street Game, with photographic clues to nine neighborhood restaurants (random drawing from completed entries gets the winner $25 gift certificates from each restaurant). And the included GumShop Game has another nine photo clues of neighborhood shops. Winner gets a $15 gift certificate to each shop.

As a preview to this year’s Gumshoe, we’ll post a photo clue each day from now until the Gumshoe ends on Sunday, Aug. 11. Here’s the first one (photos by Gumshoe Answer Man Mike Veitenhans). Do you know where this is?
