This inconspicuous and upside down blue kettle stumped all but three players!

The lucky three correctly guessed the location at Olsen's Bakery and Coffeeshop at 1529 Mission Drive in Solvang. It's hanging from the southeast corner of the building and is pretty invisible to the untrained eye. Congrats to the game changing players.

Boy am I kicking myself. I looked all over the county at every cafe and coffee shop, but I didn't look in Solvang because I thought the design codes there would be too strict to allow something as funky as an antique coffee pot hanging from a pole.

An antique *Danish* coffee pot:

Game changing indeed! Almost gave up! Besides the nail-biting element (found it at 7:50), there is the mind-blowing reality of beating Penelope805 and Holazola! I can't believe it. They were probably at all-day work seminars or something.

Wow wow wow. I feel like I've slumdog millionaired my way into most of these answers. Congratulations to the winners and all the competitors for making this one for the edhat history books.

Nope, SBSurferlife, that's how we all do it! You are one legit player!

If you like these visual scavenger hunts, or just for training for Edness, there's a similar Where in Santa Barbara? section at, but I think it only does the city.

MAC - I had no idea about SiteLineSB. Looks clunky and a bit too bougie for me, but cool to know there's another local site. March Edness is something I look forward to every year. I'd love to this more often!

Sacjon - I sure hope you meant the slang term for bourgeoisie, rather than the main definition:
"A thin, flexible surgical instrument for exploring or dilating a passage of the body."

Agree Sac, the site's owner/writer is from NYC and comes off very pretentious and snobby in his posts. He basically copies the Restaurant Guy and edhat then makes snide remarks about our town. Not a fan.

Ah. I had only looked at the Where In posts, and not the elitist content.

Michelle, you hit the nail right on the head - I'm at a high school robotics competition in Lancaster till the weekend. I hung in there as long as I could!

Aww Mike, you're my Edness mentor! Thank you for mentoring those young engineers!

I had to knock off and get my equipment ready and then drive to San Diego. I wouldn’t have gotten it, I passed it in street view, stopped and read the red sign, didn’t look up. Congratulations to the winners, well done.

I know Mike, don’t know who Michelle is. Maybe a dinner of contestants after it’s all done?

I'm Michele, and I've always thought that would be fun. There is the Edhat open house party, let's start with that!

OMG, congrats to the ones that got this tricky one, we looked everywhere, near and far!!! WOW!

Oh man, I was so close! I was looking at tea shops in Solvang for about 5 minutes and then something came up and I forgot to get back to my search! Congrats to you three!
