Day 3: 47 Menus To Go

Clue: "Miss Myrtle... why didst thou shun me?" 

Being brand new to the hunt we weren't sure where to begin.  The first thought was to google "Miss Myrtle Seattle".  Tilikum Place was the first thing we saw.  Knowing a park in downtown Seattle would be a great hiding spot we took off for 5th and Denny without reservation. 

Unfortunately for us, we hadn't taken the whole clue into consideration.  We took off for separate corners of the small park and began to search with high intensity.  The cement park (with no hiding places) proved as a failure. 

Although we realized that at this point we should likely throw in the towel we continued to search on our phones.  The only other leads were fruitless and we headed back to work with a feeling of defeat. 

Our one silver lining was the tall man we saw on his phone looking around the park aimlessly as we left.  We decided not to let him know that he too was in the wrong place.

It turns out that the clue was hidden in Gasworks park.  The park was originally named Myrtle Edwards Park.  However, a few years after the Edwards family decided to retract their family name from the park because the design called for the plant to be retained as is.
