No, we're not talking about dumpster diving or being a "freegan" and consuming others' leftover food, but a different kind of scavenger hunt is going on through July 11 at various midtown restaurants. Here's the deal: surf over to www.ilovedowntownsac.com and look for a link to download the "SCVNGR" app for your smart phone. You'll then be sent to an array of restaurants - including de Vere's Irish Pub, the Firehouse, 3 Fires Lounge and more - and can earn points by completing tasks. The Top 7 point getters will then receive $50 gift cards at local businesses. Score! Once again, click over to www.ilovedowntownsac.com and get scavenging.
