Spoon University- Delhi Chapter organized Spoon Scouts: A Foodie Treasure Hunt on 1st October, 2015 at Hudson Lane. Teams who had qualified the online round gathered at Kake Di Hatti for briefing and to get their clues. Teams present included quirky names like The Pirates of Hudson lane, Hupshis, FooDelicious, among others. The teams started the hunt at 3.30pm.

Cafes across Hudson Lane such as The Bunk-in Café, The Vintage Avenue, For God’s cake, Jack N’ Chill, Mood Swingers were a part of the Hunt. At every level, the participants won coupons from that café. Six Teams made it to the final round, with the Hogsters and A crazy one sharing the first prize.
