Hey Food Ballers, Play Along with Us at Eat Real's Scavenger Hunt
Food events are Super Bowls for foodies. Being a judge in the L.A. Cupcake Challenge was perhaps the toughest thing we've ever done. Sure, it sounds like the best idea in the world, but after sampling 40 cupcakes you feel like you just came back from battle, with just enough energy to exclaim, "I need real food!" But what if this "real food" was its own festival, and what if you had the opportunity to add more missions to the event beyond just stuffing yourself silly?
You can use Dishcrawl to map out your very own Eat Real itinerary.
Relax, fellow food ballers, you are very much in luck. At this weekend's three-day Eat Real Festival, you'll have a chance to partake in a scavenger hunt organized by Foodspotting and Dishcrawl. Sandwiched in the middle of the event ― on Saturday, Aug. 28, from 1 to 3 p.m. ― you'll have an opportunity to kick your food festing up a few notches.
Armed with your Foodspotting iPhone app or your digital camera, you'll search the festival in search of 20 separate photo ops you'll need to spot and shoot. According to the rules, "The more funny, interesting or ironic, the better!" Categories range from Something Giggle Inducing to Something Grown Within 50 Miles of Jack London Square. The photo with the most votes will win an awesome gift bag. You can also make your own playbook ahead of time using Dishcrawl as your food escort. Simply check off what pleases your mouth and how you like to be stimulated, and in seconds you have your very own Eat Real dish crawl and map.

If you believe that food events are not something to take seriously, then you don't deserve to call yourself an SFoodie. These events are hardcore. Sure, you could complete the scavenger hunt alone, on some other day, but a food baller is nothing without her team. Meet me and the other Foodspotters and Dishcrawlers at the giant telescope on the boardwalk next to Scott's Seafood Restaurant at 1 p.m. Saturday and let's make a real scavenger hunt out of this.
Also, we hate to disappoint, but unfortunately, for us, the sports analogies don't reach outside the food realm.
