A dinner at the French Laundry in Yountville soon to be California Lottery prize

Real Estate Agent with Better Homes & Gardens Wine Country Group DRE # 00770113

French Laundry, Yountville, Napa ValleyWant to dine at the French Laundry in Yountville and forego the $325 tab, that's per person, for the chef's nine course tasting menu. Soon all you will need to do is buy one the California Lottery's new $10 Emerald 10 scratchers program, to debut Jan. 5., This special prize is for dinner for two coupled with a two-night stay at the Napa Valley Lodge.

To qualify, you must submit a photo of yourself with the scratcher card and compose a 500-character (or shorter) “story” telling who you will take to dinner with you, and why. Lottery officials are still finessing the rules. “We are looking for a really good story,” said lottery spokesman Russ Lopez. “Whether it is funny, sad or touching, it really doesn’t matter — it’s about the story.”

The one caveat here, the French Laundry is closing December 24th for a major renovation which could take up to six months. So any winners will have to contain their palates during this remodel. Till then bon appetit and cheers cvc

One of the hardest restaurants to book, but I have one of those great credit cards that would get us in.

Curtis, did I get this right: Buy a $10 Emerald lottery scratcher. Win or lose on the ticket does not matter. Submit an entry with a photo and story (500 characters) and lottery officials will decide who wins?

Curtis Van Carter That sounds wonderful, I have been to a Thomas Keller restaurant I had forgotten Bouchon...but it has been so many years, I really do not remember it! We went Jean Georges in NYC and it has the best duck ever!!!

The prize has more to it. There is a French Laundry BMW to chauffeur the winner around and includes a bottle of Champagne and wine parings. Total estimated value, $4,000. cheers cvc

Kathleen from what I read, you only need to buy a scratcher and not have a winning one.
