Downtown Management District’s Hidden Hearts Scavenger Hunt Returns

On the heels of the Downtown Barstool Open event, the Downtown Management District (DMD) announces the return of the Valentine season’s Hidden Hearts scavenger hunt.

Residents have the opportunity to win prizes from downtown businesses just in time for Valentine’s Day.

All five (5) papel picado hearts will be hidden on storefronts throughout downtown in each of the five (5) districts starting Tuesday, January 29th. Contest participants can use the clues scavenger hunt style to track down the hearts.

Every participant must find all five (5) hearts to be entered for a chance to win a $50 gift card to one of five great downtown businesses.

Every participant that finds all five (5) hearts is automatically entered for a chance to win a gift card from one of these Downtown El Paso (DTEP) businesses: Zona Centro, Brew Lab, Coco Loko, The Tap, and Wallflower.

In addition, each participant is also entered to win the grand prize of an overnight stay at the new boutique hotel, Stanton House and a $100 gift card to restaurant Taft Diaz.

To play, just follow these steps:

Step 1 –           Use the clues posted at DowntownElPaso.com to find the Hidden Hearts.

Step 2 –           Take a selfie with the heart!

Step 3 –           Post each photo or a collage of the photos and tag us @DowntownElPaso on InstagramFacebook or direct message us the photos!

No purchase is necessary in order to participate. Contest ends February 11, 2019. Winners will be announced on Monday, February 12, 2019 via social media and at DowntownElPaso.com. For contest details visit DowntownElPaso.com. Please be sure to make posts “public” so they are visible for inclusion in contest.


El Centro District

Start in the City’s oldest Street

Next to a pub with plenty to Eat

A bird promising riches is what you need to Think

Look for everlasting art applied with Ink

Las Plazas Arts District

First find DTEP’s public pantheon of literary Pros

Then look across the way where the scent of food this way Blows

Tasting their delicious dishes will earn your Devotion

This heart sits in this place, deftly named after an Emotion


Union Plaza

Find the mascot of a bar, with a Girl

Not far from the once booming Black Pearl

Serving drinks that rhyme with risky isn’t making them a Trend Setter

But they’re served by girls everyone says, “…do it Better.”

Office District

This heart is across from the once lit Blue Flame, but in plain Sight

Just find the place serving drinks that will keep you up at Night

On a window, and in a place where you can study is where this heart Rests

Sipping that sweet caffeine so you can pass those never ending Tests

Government District

Find the building that is home to a restaurant and vinyl record Shop

Look for a service where footwear is saved, except maybe your Flip Flop

In addition, this building is home to First Fridays

Take these steps to find the heart, then bask is high Praise.


– Clues will be posted on social media @DowntownElPaso and DowntownElPaso.com

– Both couples and singles can enter, however; couples posting in same photo count as one entry.

– You must find and send selfies with all five (5) hearts to be entered for a chance to win.

– Do not post location of heart. Saying where the heart is located on social media will disqualify you.
