Our New Year’s Resolution here at Remezcla is simple: we want to know our cities. There are so many cool things happening every day that to live in a place like New York, Chicago, LA, or San Francisco and not check some of them out is to waste an incredible opportunity. But with so many new venues popping up unexpectedly and new bands springing up by the hundreds, who has the time? This is why we’re hoping you’ll join us and make our New Year’s resolution yours too. We’ve even gone ahead and done some of the work for you. Asi que vamos chicos. Let’s do this.

So here’s the deal: now through January 28th yours truly is partnering with SCVNGR (this crazy new app for iPhones and Androids) to map out selected venues in New York, Chicago, LA, and San Francisco. Think mind-blowing art murals, avant-garde photo-galleries, the city’s essential ethnic restaurants, all of these will be mapped on SCVNGR for you to check out. But there’s more.


We’ve secretly selected 20 places in each city, and if you go to them all, you could win a brand new car. A Nissan Juke, to be exact.


But even if you only get the chance to visit one or two venues, there’s still something in it for you (asi que no tienen excusa, sorry). At each place, there will be different challenges earning you points. For example:

20% off menu items at NYC’s Hecho en Dumbo and 10% at La Sirena.

10% off purchases at Mischka or The Sacred Lounge in LA.

If you’re in Chicago, get 25% any food purchases at Zocalo, then head over to Reina Spa, which is offering 20% off any spa service.

San Francisco’s Yoshi’s will give you free admission to lounge performances on Wednesdays, and the Yerba Buena Center for the Performing Arts will give you half off admission.

Even if a place isn’t offering discounts and giveaways, checking in may still count for points, but of course, you won’t know until you check in, will you? Get it? Good.


Win an iPad!


And we can’t forget about our iPad giveaways. Be the first to check in to the right place on the right date between 1PM and 4PM, and you could win a brand new Apple iPad. Here’s a few locations:

So you go to places and get points. Points earn you discounts, which in turn earn you sweet prizes or, si eres un suertudo, the Nissan Juke. But how does it work?

Simple: Download the SCVNGR app and then from all the Treks available pick “Juke the City”. Then use the Remezcla neighborhood guides to knock out a bunch of places at once. We’ll also keep you updated on when you can win iPads, cameras, gift cards and other prizes.

¿Están listos? Let the games begin.
