If you can't resist the thrill of a round of BINGO, and you love dining out, your winning number has just been called. That's right, Restaurant BINGO has arrived with a month of digital takeout/delivery challenges.
For the next four weeks, until 11 March, S.Pellegrino and NetflixQueer Eye’s Tan France will be running a brand new Restaurant BINGO game in the US. It's an exciting new challenge, in which you can get involved by simply ordering at your favourite restaurants (delivery/takeaway or dine in) and joining in on bingo-style challenges on Instagram, all in the name of charity.
Speaking about the launch, Netflix's Queer Eye star and fashion designer, France, said: “Together, we’re giving our fellow food fans yet another reason to order from and support neighbourhood eateries through these chilly winter weeks, at a time when they need our help more than ever.”
How do I play Restaurant BINGO?
Over the next four weeks, France will unveil a new Restaurant BINGO board theme via Instagram (@tanfrance), with four food-related challenges at the beginning of each week, as shown below. Each week will have a different theme, including 'Food Love', 'Around the World', 'ABCs of Food' and 'Movie Moments'.
To play, all you need to do is claim a square on the weekly board by posting an original photo of your order (to Instagram stories or in-feed) that matches the challenge on that square using #SupportRestaurants, #promotion and tagging @sanpellegrino_us.
So, whether you've dressed up for dinner at home, or you're eating a burger in bed, here's your chance to have some fun while supporting the industry. It really is win-win.
For each eligible submission, S.Pellegrino will donate $1 to the James Beard Foundation to support the James Beard Foundation Food and Beverage Investment Fund for Black and Indigenous Americans, up to $50,000.
A new board will be released each Friday, so keep your eyes peeled, and think how you're going to get creative.
