The first official Photo Hunt of 2009 is under way, and this time there’s some new incentive behind it! The first person to successfully name all 15 photo locations accurately will win a $50 Gift Card to G. Michael’s in German Village!

Click here to take a look at the photos, and post your guesses in the comment section below. We’ll post some updates on which answers are right and which are wrong, so pay close attention if someone has already gotten a few of them named correctly. Good luck!

    I can’t wait ’til Ol’ Jimmy Sweeney takes me around the pubs and haberdasheries looking for clues. Maybe we can wear those Sherlock hats?

    I’ve played some drunk-ass dart matches at ol’ #3! Kinda miss ol GV.

  • http://www.columbusunderground.com Walker

    I’m not eligble for the sweet prize, but I *think* I’ve got 7 out of these 15 photos.

    I’m a bit embarrassed since I lived in/around GV for like 5 years.

  • http://www.columbus-ite.com Columbusite

    I got a handful. Beautiful shots.

  • HeySquare

    I have 8 for sure, and 2 more that I *know* I’ve seen, but don’t know exactly where they are. Anone with a line on 2, 3, 4 and 7? I’ll split prizes :)

  • Kbear919

    HeySquare…you do know #15 and #13?

    If you do, I’m impressed….

  • HeySquare

    I’m pretty sure I’ve got 15 (although I’ve never actually been inside).

    13 is KILLING me. I know I’ve seen that hitching post like a million times, but I can’t remember exactly where it is. That is one of the ones I have to check on! (I’m a nerd for street furniture.)

  • Kbear919

    I love how your speaking in code, as to not tip anyone off…. :)

    Same on 13, I guarantee I’ve seen it tons of times, can picture it, but can’t figure out exactly where the hell it is.

  • Rocknrolloutlaws

    The thing about 13, is I think there might be multiple ones that are similar, if not identical. I think. I could be totally wrong. Because I think I know where it is, but the background doesn’t seem right.

  • HeySquare

    Bingo…I found 13

  • HeySquare

    Rocknroll… I think you are right… I think there might be one or two more.

  • HeySquare

    OK… I’m going for it:
    1 the sign on the backside of Jurgens.
    2 Laundromat next to Hausfrau
    3 Sycamore Cafe
    4 Max and Irma’s
    5 Sundial at Frank Fetch Park
    6 Light fixtures on Olde Mohawk
    7 G. Michaels vestibule
    8 Bierburg Cookie Bakery on Fifth
    9 Schmidt’s
    10 Umbrella girl in Schiller
    11 Hausfrau Haven
    12 Art studio on Columbus
    13 Hitching post… On City Park just north of the school
    14 Quilting store on City Park south of Roosters (clearly 911 City Park)
    15 I think the Natural Supplement store on Mohawk south of Livingston

  • Kbear919

    so so so so so so so close….but no cigar….

  • HeySquare

    Ok… 7 is Beck Tavern

  • HeySquare

    Sorry… make that #3 is Beck Tavern

  • http://BrianMez.com Mez

    I would concur…I think he got them all….at least those are my guesses also.

  • HeySquare

    Cause I’m a nerd… I did find another horsehead hitching post on Mohawk Street tonight… west side of the street near Frankfort. So there are a few others out there. But the one in the pic is the one on City Park, cause I recognize the red metal roof of the house at the corner of Reinhard and Third in the background.

  • http://www.columbusunderground.com Walker

    I think you’re wrong on #5. ;)

  • Rocknrolloutlaws

    There’s also another horsehead on Sycamore as you head towards Shumacher Place. But it doesn’t have a brass ring.

    The one on Mohwak was the one I was originally thinking of when I said I thought there were multiple ones.

  • HeySquare

    I’m wrong on #5 as well… it’s a birdbath, not a sundial in Frank Fetch park. I have to admit, I’m stumped on the sundial. I thought maybe it was at the Bookloft, but I walked over there last night, and there was no sundial.

    I am impressed HeySquare…You know your village….

    To be honest with you the sundial was taken at the book loft along the left side of the steps leading up to it…

    You said you looked there but didn’t find it… I wonder if it was an oversight or if they may have moved it..maybe worth checking…

    I “knight” you sir, German Village..winner of giftcards

    Now the next question is….how will you fair in other neighborhoods?

  • HeySquare

    I did look at the Book Loft… crap. I’m wondering if maybe it was covered by snow. I almost impaled myself on the fence at Lindey’s for nothing!

    I’ll suck at the other neighborhoods… I don’t walk my dog there! :) It’s amazing how much you notice when you are on foot in the neighborhood. I think I owe a couple of people drinks at G. Michael’s on the gift certificate, since I did have some help from a few additional sources!

  • Kbear919

    I’d love to lift a few with you..

  • chrisgillespie

    Well, I know you’ve occasionally walked your dog in other neighborhoods, heysquare ;) Unfortunately, they’ve already done VV, and before I was even CUing…

    I know next to nothing about German Village, since I’ve only been there to go to restaurants a few times. I didn’t know any of these. I’d probably excel mostly at Marion, where elderly family members live or have been in nursing homes… (I really need the eye roll emoticon here)…

    I’ll have to walk Harley there sometime to learn more about GV. She’d love to meet your sweet pup.

    Hope you’re going to the jazz club next Wed…
