As if a $28 three-course meal isn’t enticing enough, The Seattle Restaurant Cooperative and The Seattle Times is spicing up Seattle Restaurant Week with a QR code contest to win some hard to beat prizes. Don’t count yourself out for this one. All you need is an appetite, a smartphone, and some savvy seeking skills.
Here’s how it will work – Starting April 8, participating restaurants will be hiding a QR code somewhere in their restaurant. When you arrive, the seeking begins and it’s your job to craftily seek out where the QR may be. Once you find it, scan the barcode with either an iPhone or Android smartphone. This will automatically enter you to win a variety of prizes including:
A hotel stay for two at Mayflower Park Hotel with parking and breakfast for two at Andaluca.
A progressive dinner at Nell’s Restaurant, Seastar Restaurant & Raw Bar, and Dahlia Lounge.
A $75 gift card to Flying Fish
A $50 gift card to Tilth restaurant
Each diner can only scan the code once within a 24-hour period. If we’re doing our math correctly, this will give you 10 days to dash around different restaurants and find their QR code. We hear you… what’s a contest without a few clues along the way, right? Leave it to SRW to make this contest even easier, with some added “umph” to your savvy competitive side. Facebook will keep you up to speed as well as following #EatnSeek, @SeattleRW and any of the participating restaurants on Twitter. Together, these platforms will be providing clues to help guide you in the right direction.
Don’t be fooled, you don’t have to be tech savvy to win this one. After all, this may be the one and only time it becomes politically correct to whip out your cell phone during dinner…don’t miss the opportunity!
