Kia Rio Scavenger Hunt

6/16/2012 06:04:00 PM
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kia Rio. All opinions are 100% mine.
The folks over at Kia asked me to share a short L.A. scavenger hunt video with you guys.  I'm kind of fond of those hamster commercials that they have, so I couldn't say no.  It also kind of makes me miss having my car.  For those of you that forgot, I sold my car last year because I just wasn't using it enough and it was getting pricey paying for parking and insurance for something I was rarely using.  Check out the video below:

Kind of makes me want to visit LA, especially because of all the rain we've been having.  And a Scavenger Hunt is a nice way to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time.  The last scavenger hunt I went on was at Rutgers New Brunswick - it was wayyyyy less glamorous. 
If you're curious, here are the five spots that they hit:
• The Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round
• Amoeba Records
• Rodeo Drive
• Pink’s Hot Dogs
• The Roosevelt Hotel
I had yogurt, granola, and a banana for dinner tonight.  Now I really want a chili dog.  That thing looked delicious.  Adding Pink's to the list of places to visit when I go to L.A. and crash with my buddy Yamashita.
I wonder how long the teams ended up spending at Amoeba Records searching for that proverbial needle in the haystack.  That was probably the toughest of the 5 challenges.  
And now a few of my thoughts on the car.  I've never actually driven a Kia, but I do like that they packed a bunch of features into the car (Bluetooth, USB, Navigation, Rear Camera Display).  My old Yukon had navigation, but that was about it .... that and GM wanted 200 bucks a year for updated map discs.  And it seems like the future is all about voice commands.  Apple's got Siri and Kia's got UVO.  Oh and lastly, if I were to drive a Kia Rio, I'd probably have an easier time parking in the city than I did with my Yukon. 
Any readers out there test driven or own a Rio?  Any thoughts to add?

    Just got back from LA, my uncle lives out there and has for almost 40 years. Locals would tell you to skip Pinks, not worth the wait, not very good. If you want good bad for you food, go to Tommy burger and get the original burger with the chili and so good. Their chili cheese fries are amazing too. And definitely do an In and Out burger. Ask for it animal style - they add pickles, grilled onions, extra sauce and they mustard grill the burger which means they cook one side then squirt mustard on the side facing up and flip it over and cook the mustard into the patty. Makes me drool just thinking about it. They will do fries animal style too - fries with grilled onions, special sauce and cheese. You wouldn't think CA would have so many good burger places, but they do. It's crazy. Have fun!! LA is a great place to visit. :)
