And now for the new clues for week eight...
Buck #15 / Clue 1
Our next buck in the hunt, to all my dudettes and dudes, is just a hop, skip and a jump from the store that’s named Whole Foods. For a change of pace this buck does not sit beside a tower. But as you look you’ll soon see why his name is Flower Power.
Buck #16 / Clue 1
After Pizza last week perhaps you need a treat. At Our next location there is something for your tooth that’s sweet. A favorite of the locals it sometimes considered off the beaten path, but don’t miss pronounce the name or you’ll feel a French Chef family’s wrath.
