I'm a noob here, but I just saw something!
Go look at the app's description in the app store! IT HAS CHANGED. Apparently the game isn't all there is to this!
Now, after the binary code (which I assume is the same, someone might want to confirm), there's one more line, a set of coordinates:
+32 42' 31.63", -117 9' 32.06"
Searching this in Google Maps returns an address:
335 6th Ave, San Diego, CA 92101
GMaps has Street View available, which I checked. It seems to be centered on a curious-looking building with no name or sign on it. Looks like stucco on the outside, sort of a Mexican design to the facade. There are a set of black double doors in front with long metal pulls I think, hard to see it very closely. There's a lot of hardwood around the windows.
NBC San Diego Events calls it the Culy Trucking Warehouse.
Some website named Culinary Concepts (but with the address www.cateringpsecialist.com) has this to say about the building as a potential venue:
"In 1914, Frank O. Culy started the Culy Trucking Company in the historic heart of the Gaslamp Quarter’s East Village to transport goods to early San Diego residents. Today, the warehouse is a multi-purpose 15,000 sq ft downtown event center. Located between J and K on the 300 block of 6th and 7th Aves, directly adjacent to Petco Park and within easy walking distance to the Convention Center and the Gaslamp Quarter, the Warehouse offers a unique and ideal venue for corporate events, trade shows, live performances, fashion shows and other events. The warehouse offers ample parking, easy access set-up and take-down, a full caterer’s kitchen, and customized store-front, signage, and entrance opportunities on both 6th and 7th Aves, with excellent visibility from both Petco Park and the Gaslamp. This space is divided into two connected warehouse units: the Jack Dodge Theatre and the Culy Warehouse Studio. The warehouse features 16 ft open-beam ceilings, 4 tall wood-and-glass front doors that can be thrown open for a dramatic entrance effect, cement floors and walls, for a combined standing capacity of 1,300. The space is a "blank slate", but not so rough that you have to do a lot of dressing up. From a barefoot bar/beach club, to a Harley Davidson roadside saloon, to a sleek nightclub theme, the space user-friendly, and limited only by your imagination! The spaces have hosted local and celebrity events, from performing arts to fashion shows to Super Bowl galas and clients such as San Diego Magazine, Disney, Fox Studios, and Cadillac."
It also lists a website for the venue itself: www.culywarehouse.com. I've been through it a bit, about half of it is 'coming soon' banners. There is a PDF flyer downloadable from there, with some names & numbers.
I've called the main number for the venue, sounds like an otherwise normal message phone. I've also emailed a request for more information "about the building's history, and that of the Culy Trucking Company", we'll see if I get a response.
Am I going too crazy, here, digging too deep to find something that isn't there? Can someone else go through these sites, see what you turn up?
