Sponsor and Administrator: The Fall For All Sweepstakes ("Sweepstakes") is sponsored and administered by Food 42, LLC, a New York limited liability company ("Sponsor"). Sponsor operates Patina 250, which is located at 250 Delaware Ave, Buffalo , NY 14202 (the "Restaurant").
Submission Period and Drawing: The Sweepstakes begins June 30, 2022 at 12:01 a.m. local time of the Restaurant and runs until August 21, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. local time of the Restaurant, which may be extended in Sponsor's sole discretion (the "Submission Period"). The random drawing will be held on August 22, 2022 by Sponsor to select the winner from among all eligible entries received. All entries must be submitted during the Submission Period. Odds of winning the prize for a drawing depend on total number of eligible entries received prior to that drawing during the Submission Period. Under no circumstances will Sponsor award more than one prize per drawing. Sponsor cannot accurately predict the number of entrants who will participate in the Sweepstakes (each an "Entrant").
Entrant's Acceptance of Rules: By participating in the Sweepstakes, each Entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Sweepstakes Rules (the "Rules") and the decisions of Sponsor, which shall be final and binding in all respects. This Sweepstakes is void in Puerto Rico, and all other U.S. territories, U.S. military installations in foreign countries and possessions and everywhere prohibited by law.
Eligibility: The Sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the United States who are 18 years of age and older or if different, the age of majority as established by such individual's state of residence, as of the date of entry. Employees, officers, directors, managers and members, along with their respective immediate family members, of Sponsor and its affiliates, and any other entities involved in any manner with the marketing, sponsoring, fulfilling or administration of the Sweepstakes (collectively, the "Sweepstakes Entities"), are not eligible to participate or win. The term "immediate family member" includes spouses, parents, step-parents, children, step-children, siblings, step-siblings, grandchildren, step-grandchildren or other family extension, regardless of where they live, and any persons residing in the same residence as the winner at least three (3) months per year, whether related or not.

All Instagram and Facebook terms apply. Normal internet access, phone charges and usage charges imposed by your online/phone service provider(s) will apply.
Winner Selection: The Sweepstakes will have one winner.

After responding to the Initial Notification, the potential winner will be required to execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release/Indemnification and a Publicity Release, where allowed by law, within seven (7) days after it is received. A potential winner who does not respond to the Initial Notification, does not meet the stated eligibility requirements, does not return the required documentation, refuses to accept the prize, or any prize notification which is returned as undeliverable will be disqualified and Sponsor will award the prize to an alternate winner selected from the remaining pool of eligible entries. A selected potential winner will not be an official winner until all required documentation has been returned, and eligibility has been formally verified. [Only two (2) alternate drawings will be held for either drawing, after which the prize for that drawing will remain unawarded.]
Entry Limits: Entry into the Sweepstakes is limited to one entry per person, per email address and per address where an Entrant resides.

No mechanically reproduced, illegible, incomplete, forged, software-generated or other automated entries will be accepted.
In the event of a dispute over the identity of an Entrant, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the Authorized Account Holder (as described below) at the time of entry and the Entrant may be required to provide identification sufficient to show the Entrant is the Authorized Account Holder. The "Authorized Account Holder" means the natural person who is assigned that email address by the email address provider responsible for assigning email addresses for that entity. Potential winner may be required to provide proof of eligibility upon request. Proof of submission of entry does not constitute proof of delivery of entry.
