2/28 Update: This week's tickets have been claimed, at Utilikilts in Pioneer Square! Don't forget, the last round of our "Orpheus Odyssey" starts on Monday--and this time we'll have TWO chances to win. _____________________________________________________________ Originally posted on Monday, February 27, 2012, at 10 a.m.

Orphée et Eurydice opened Saturday night, yet the Orpheus Odyssey continues!

On the first week of our Orpheus Odyssey treasure hunt, Nick G. claimed the hidden tickets at That's Amore! cafe in Mt. Baker--after only one clue! Our second week clues proved a little trickier, but Stona Jackson, assisted by Orpheus-in-training Noah (pictured below), deciphered the second clue and picked up the second-week tickets at Dusty Strings, a music store in Fremont.

Another hunt begins this week. We've stashed another free pair of Orphée et Eurydice tickets somewhere in Seattle; your job is to decipher our increasingly fiendish clues and liberate the tickets. If you need a refresher on how these treasure hunts work, check out the rules. If you're ready to travel on, here are clues for Week 3's great mystery of Orpheus:

CLUE #1 (posted 2/27)
223 years after pudding, glue. yUcK, Phlegethon!

CLUE #2 (posted 2/28)
A Cerberus of raven, mink, orca (and more) threatens those who seek what lies beneath.

"Open Brook"

Know which business this is referring to? If so, a pair of tickets to the March 10 performance of Orphée et Eurydice await, available for claiming this week from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. this Monday through Friday, or 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturday.

If you're stumped, come back to this blog every morning this week (or check out our Facebook or Twitter pages) for a NEW CLUE, until the tickets have been won. The final hunts begin next Monday.

Good luck...
