Things to do this week in Baton Rouge: Scavenger hunt, a cooking class, SpongeBob and more

Grab your phone for a scavenger hunt Wednesday

“It’s a Scavenger Hunt” hosts hunts around the world, and the group comes to Baton Rouge this Wednesday, May 24.

Clues and riddles on the “It’s a Scavenger Hunt” app help players navigate from item to item. The hunt takes place in generally crowded areas like malls and shopping centers. For about $25 per person, teams will have 90 minutes to hunt. Each hunt is catered to the player, and the timer starts the second the player starts the clock.
