As Hamilton’s restaurants, bars, and cafes reckon with the endless challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the push to eat local has never been stronger.
That’s why a new social media Bingo game has been created that encourages grabbing great food at some of the city’s best restaurants; and maybe winning a ridiculously awesome prize while you’re at it.
Hosted by Lotus Thai & Vietnamese Cuisine, this Bingo game is taking place on Instagram with a special Bingo card, each square featuring one of Hamilton’s iconic dishes from a terrific variety of local restaurants.
The game is simple: between now and May 31st, Hamilton foodies can eat their way through the list and earn entries into a draw for over $3,600 worth of gift cards to local restaurants. Two winners will be drawn, each receiving over $1,700 of gift cards.
As proof, locals can share photos of their food to their Instagram feed or story, tagging both @lotus_cuisine as well as the restaurant the food is from.
For lovers of local eats, it’ll hardly be a challenge to make a dent in the list, either.
Just some of the amazing dishes listed on Hamilton Restaurant Bingo are the thick ‘n delicious Brisket Sandwich from Lucky’s BBQ, the unreal Secret Pickle Pizza from MaiPai Tiki Bar, the legendary Fries with Benefits at Rony’s Restaurant, a Belgian chocolate dipped cone from La Crème de la Crème, and the strawberry latte from Phin Coffee Bar.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg in a collection of 25 different restaurants and dishes to try over the next month; and eating just three of them will grant you one entry into that sweet, sweet draw.
Wanna go harder than that? Five restaurants off the bingo card is worth three draw entries, and an impressive full card blackout is worth ten. Participants must be following the restaurants they get food from on Instagram to qualify, and entries will be tracked using the hashtag #HamontRestoBingo.
This contest promises to be just as delicious as it is fun, so play on and support your local faves, Hamilton!
