Hidden Cash To Make Drops In The Inland Empire And L.A. Today, With 'Biggest Ever' Tomorrow
The enigmatic, Internet-savvy purveyor of free money will sojourn into the Inland Empire this morning and swing back into L.A. this later evening to dish out the goods. On Thursday the man otherwise known as Jason Buzi made his drop in Whittier's William Penn Park, and yesterday treated O.C. residents with another beach scavenger hunt in Huntington Beach. Last night his drop at Kenneth Hahn Park didn't go so well because he showed up a little late. But his "biggest ever" is in store for tomorrow, he tweeted:
Today's drops will be contained in sugar packets, upping the difficulty a little bit because of their small size, and because there's fewer things we love more in excess than money and sweets:
Sadly, sugar packets aren't nearly as fun as Angry Birds or bottles of bubbles.
So far the only clue has given out about the location of today's drops was one aimed at Dad Rock Aficionados in the Inland Empire, of which we are sure there are many.
All signs point towards Riverside.
(Oh, and by the way, that song was originally by Robert Johnson, just another blues musician Led Zeppelin borrowed wholesale from)
As for tomorrow's drops, will residents of downtown and/or Diamond Bar be in for a his "biggest ever" treat tomorrow?
Have fun, stay safe, and once again don't do anything stupid.
