Glens Falls Announces Restaurant Bingo
The Glens Falls Collaborative, with support from the City of Glens Falls and the Business Improvement District, has just announced Restaurant Bingo, launching on Monday, January 18, and running to February 28, 2021. Folks can print out the card at home, mark the restaurants they patronize, and once they have five in a row, email in their bingo card along with receipts/proof of purchase to firstname.lastname@example.org to enter.
Each week there will be a drawing to win a $20 gift card from one Glens Falls restaurant, a different one at random each week. A grand prize winner from all entries will be chosen on March 1, 2021, to be awarded a “staycation” gift certificate for an overnight stay and breakfast for two at the Queensbury Hotel.
This is a reprise of the Restaurant Bingo done in Spring 2020 when many restaurants were forced to go to all take-out or even close. A restaurant can still be patronized and marked on the bingo card if a gift certificate is purchased in this time period. Most closed restaurants are still selling gift certificates.
“We know this has been a trying time for many local businesses, and we wanted to do something to help the restaurants out,” says Amy Collins, the City of Glens Falls’ Director of Tourism and Business Development.
“We felt it was important to do something that wasn’t going to make more work for any of the businesses but would still be fun for people to do,” says Nancy Turner, Secretary of the Glens Falls Collaborative. “So this will be one way to support the restaurants because you can still buy a gift card and play the game, even if a restaurant has temporarily closed due to the pandemic.”
The bingo card can be found in the following locations:
