El Pasoans can win prizes in annual ‘Hidden Hearts’ scavenger contest

EL PASO, Texas - El Paso's Downtown Management District is giving you the opportunity to discover downtown and win some great prizes. The annual "Hidden Hearts" scavenger hunt is underway.

Five paper hearts (one in each of the five districts downtown) have been placed in the windows of storefronts. You must find all five hearts and take a selfie with each. Then tag it with @DowntownElPaso on Instagram or Facebook. You can also send a direct message to the Downtown Management District with your selfies.

Prizes range from gift cards to dinner for two, courtesy of these downtown El Paso businesses: Elemi, 501 Bistro, Juicery Plus, Taft Diaz, Anson 11, and Hotel Indigo El Paso Downtown. The grand prize is a one-night stay at Hotel Indigo, with two tickets to the Mamacita's Wine Dinner on Friday, February 14.

The contest ends at midnight on Wednesday, February 12 and winners will be announced on Thursday, February 13. Complete contest details are available at But here are the five clues to help you find those "Hidden Hearts":

Green Hidden Heart:

Venturing into the oldest Street in town, is the very little we can Foretell, 

Find the shop with a statue of a singer known for Heartbreak Hotel

While you’re there, buy and sell at your Leisure

But keep in mind, the Hidden Heart is the true Treasure

Blue Hidden Heart:

Think of a Year when drink was once again made Legal,

When exclusivity made you feel naughty but Regal  

Named after a time when you needed a password for Access

Ponder the clues and a simple Google search will reward you with an Address

Red Hidden Heart:

The food served here originated in Spain

Named after cuisine served in small portions as meals or Snacks

Look for a silo of food where the tastes are anything but Plain

Tucked in a part of Downtown known for trains and Tracks

Purple Hidden Heart:

Look for a neon heart in addition to our Papel Picado Corazon to Start

This restaurant is at the foot of a resting place for the traveling Weary

Named for the one person in the world that loves you like their finest work of Art

The food here will nurture your soul, but don’t expect to be called Dearie

Yellow Hidden Heart:

Next to a bar known for their world famous Nachos

But this place is partially named after Leonardo da Vinci’s Bae,

You’ll look for drinks but you’ll find art, gals and Muchachos

The focus is creativity, cocktails and nighttime Play
