SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The California Lottery is set to offer an unusual prize for one of its games: Dinner for two at the famous French Laundry restaurant in Napa Valley.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1Gtw83s) the prize is part of a promotion for the lottery's $10 Emerald 10's scratchers starting on Jan. 5. It will also include a two-night stay at the nearby Napa Valley Lodge.
To be eligible to win, participants will have to take a picture with the scratcher and write a 500-or-less character caption explaining who they would take with them to the restaurant and why.
Lottery spokesman Russ Lopez says officials will be looking for a really good story.
Rules for the promotion are still being finalized.
French Laundry in Yountville has won numerous awards. It offers a fixed-price menu for $295 per person.
