Today is Game of Shrooms 2022. You can read about it at yumfactory.com . This is the 3rd annual GoS. I think it's cute. There are a few in the Chicago area, but we are very spread out. I don't recommend anyone get into their car this year to drive to pick art shrooms in 2022. I *do* hope it takes off many more people do it next year and it becomes a walkable or bikeable event in some areas.
I think it could be a cute event that also doubles as promotional activity for museums, indy stores, libraries, park districts etc. like how everybody wanted to be a Pokemon Go stop when that was a thing.
You can see where mushrooms are popping up on Instagram by following #gameofshrooms2022 or #shroomdrop .
