Beer Gardens of Stormwind, Darnassus and Exodar

Brewfest is here and along with it, a bunch of achievements, quests and dailies. One of the quests that you may try to complete is Pink Elekks On Parade (not listed in Wowhead) which requires you to visit the Beer Gardens outside of Stormwind, Darnassus and Exodar and zap 3 Pink Elekks in each garden using the Elekk zapper item that you are given.

In case you're wondering 1) where the Beer Gardens are and 2) where the hell are those pink Elekks, here's how to find them. I couldn't find any mention of this - apparently new - quest anywhere.

1) The Beer Gardens are right outside each city's main gates. They're hard to miss. The consist of the same sort of gathering as the one outside Ironforge except on a smaller scale: beer barrels, revelers, a few vendors and banners.

2) The pink Elekks can only be seen if you are well hammered (i.e. very drunk). You can choose to drink yourself to a stupor with purchased alcohol from the vendors or, even better, wear the item called Synthebrew Goggles that on the Alliance side can be obtained from a dude called Goldark Snipehunter at the Ironforge Brewfest. You just need to ask him "what if I don't like drinking" or something to that effect. Once you are wearing the goggles or are drunk, you can see the Elekks. They are as big as a riding Elekk, thus easy to see. Zap 3 of them in each location.

For the Horde, similar instructions apply. Good luck with your Elekk hunting!
