Booooooom x The Juice Truck: Summer Ender Party

Tonight is our Summer Ender party with The Juice Truck! We are releasing a cold pressed juice together called “Brain On” that actually helps your brain function, and will be available at The Juice Truck all month. Come try it tonight, and put your brain to the test. There will be mind puzzles, music, beers, and lots of good prizes (including some of the last remaining Booooooom x Herschel bags I saved to be given away).

 

Booooooom x The Juice Truck Summer Ender Party

When: TONIGHT – 7pm till late

Where: The Juice Truck Cafe – 28 West 5th Ave

 

In honour of our brain juice I am re-posting this puzzle from Wired that I shared way back in 2009. It is still one of my favourite puzzles. If you don’t live in Vancouver and you can’t come to our party tonight maybe you can whip up your own brain juice at home and tackle this puzzle.

You are welcome to voice your frustration in the comments but if you know the answer please don’t ruin the fun for everyone else! Apparently this puzzle took me roughly an hour to solve in 2009. Good luck!
