Night 2 Puzzle Released

The puzzle included in this post encodes the location of PuzzleNight event 2, which happens Monday, March 10th starting from 6:30pm!

Here it is:

PN_Night2_PrePuzzle  (updated 2-28)

Like most puzzles used for PuzzleNight, it is designed to be done by groups of 2-4 people, and may include unexpected surprises. It should result in a general address, but the explicit address is not far.

This post will be updated with hints in a few days, which should make the puzzle easier.

The location of PuzzleNight will then be released publicly in a week, so you can verify your answer (or just skip the puzzle).
