* Accidentally released on 12/11/12

Palisades park is usually full of activity. From tourists to recreating locals to the homeless. Along with the work of art, you'll see several plaques to pay tribute to individuals who have made significant contributions to the city. There is a nice view of the coast. A great spot to see fireworks on 4th of July and New Year's Day. You are looking for a smallish, magnetized pill bottle container somewhere on the frame. Please use extreme stealth, high muggle activity at all hours. Hid a decon container nearby and it was gone when I returned an hour later. You may have a pair of eyes watching you, even if you don't see a body in sight. Please replace in the same inconspicuous location.

"Wat dat?" is how we say "What's that?" in Hawaiian pidgin English. When you arrive at GZ, you may have that question in mind. Sometimes you gotta wonder what's going on in the artist's mind. At times, genius. Other times, garbage. I'm not making a comment about the sculpture, just art in general. It's subjective and everyone will see it for what it is. Share your opinion when logging, if you want to stick your neck out.

Difficulty rating based on muggle factor & stealth needed during search, retrieval & return of cache. Congratulations to pgillen for being the First to make sense of 'Wat Dat?'!. Keep trying, Team Weill! And, to kiecker for getting ALL 12 hides on 12/12/12!
