We're working with a startup called Stray Boots to create interactive food adventures around New York! Like a cross between a tour and a scavenger hunt, Stray Boots's cell phone-guided experiences send you "challenges" at different locations that you complete to earn points and learn fun facts about each stop along the way. You can play by iPhone app or even by using any phone via text message or a mobile web browser.
Of course, the tours we create together are all about food. For the next 24 hours ONLY, Serious Eats readers get 75% off our first food tour—reducing the price to $3/person. Just use the coupon code SERIOUSLY12 at checkout. The offer's only good for the next 24 hours, but once you purchase the tour, you can play it any time (through the end of 2013).
For our first foray, Stray Boots has taken a bunch of our favorite spots in Chinatown and Little Italy and turned them into an gastronomic game through one of the tastiest parts of the city. Wander around through our favorite eating spots, markets, and more (no pressure to stuff yourself, but we bet you'll want to snack along the way!). You'll stop at our favorite dumpling place, favorite bakery for egg tarts, favorite spot for $2 lamb burgers, and more. For details and to purchase tickets to the experience, which you can play virtually any time and on your own schedule, click here.
