In addition to the 10 days of dining deals, SRW will also be giving away prizes to savvy diners with the Eat & Seek Contest, a QR code contest for smartphone users. All participating restaurants will post the QR code in an inconspicuous location in the restaurant during SRW. Once found, diners simply need to scan the code with their iphone or Android phone in order to enter to win a variety of prizes from an overnight in a Seattle hotel, restaurant gift cards, a chef experience and more. Each diner can only scan the QR code once every 24 hours, giving a maximum of 10 scans during the 10 days of SRW. Social media will aid diners in locating the QR codes with some restaurants giving clues of the QR codes’ location via Facebook and Twitter.
