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 (https://bit.ly/1Gtw83s ) the prize is part of a promotion for the lottery’s $10 Emerald 10s scratchers starting 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-word-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.
