QUIZ – What Lies Beneath (Baldwin Hills Dam Break)

WOW. You guys are on the ball today! The full answer is after the jump. :)

************

Well, we were a bit busy last week so we fell a little behind on our quizzes… but we’ll try to make up for it now. :)

You regular readers should know how this game works by now… it all starts when we show you a spot on a google map (see below) and tell you that we’re thinking of a reason this particular area is notable. Then you start to guess what that reason might be. Within 24 hours we’ll give you the full details… but as always, you have a nice amount of time to guess what we’re referring to first, we encourage you not to cheat by googling the address and we also ask that if you know the answer right away please try not to announce it too quickly and ruin the game for those who might not.

And with that little refresher course… it’s guessing time! No hints today, either.

QUIZ – What Lies Beneath (Avila Adobe)

Okay, you guys got it. The full answer’s after the jump. :)

*****

Well since y’all had so much fun with this last week, let’s try this little game again!

Just to refresh your memory, here’s how it goes… first we’ll show you a spot on a google map (see below). We’re thinking of a notable location that’s within walking distance of that exact point, less than a block or two away. Within 24 hours we’ll give you the full details… but as before, we’re going to give you a little time to guess what we’re referring to first. Again, don’t you dare go cheating by googling the address. Cheaters never prosper. (And if you know the answer right away please try not to announce it too quickly and ruin the game for the people who don’t.)
Lastly, if you need a hint, scroll down and we’ll give you one. :)

Ready? GO!

QUIZ – What Lies Beneath (Home/Deathplace of Old West Legend Wyatt Earp)

A few of you got it! Nice shootin’, Tex! The answer is after the jump. :)

quiz Okay, we’re going to try a new game. Here’s how it goes… first we’ll give you a location (see below). Now, it’s been widely stated that something (or someone) *very* notable once happened (or lived) within yards of the exact point shown on the map.

Within 24 hours we’ll give you the full details… but just to be sadistic and challenge you, we’re going to give you a little time to guess what we’re referring to first. And don’t you dare go cheating by googling the address. That’s not fair!!!

Happy guessing!
