Each Entry will be identified by the applicable entrant’s e-mail address, as collected and stored in the Promotion Database.  For purposes of these Contest Rules, the “Promotion Database” is defined as the entire list of valid Entries generated during the Promotion Period.  Sponsor will stop accepting Entries at 11:59:59 P.M. EST on February 11, 2023.



At the conclusion of each calendar day during the Promotion Period (each, a “Promotion Day”), the Sponsor will randomly select, as potential Prize winners, up to ten thousand (10,000) entries from the Promotion Database (“Winner Selection”).  The potential Prize winners will be notified via e-mail within ten (10) days after Winner Selection.



The potential Prize winners shall be subject to eligibility verification.  The potential Prize winners must comply with these Contest Rules.  Failure to do so may result in forfeiture of the applicable Prize, in its entirety. The potential Prize winners will be required to provide Prize Winner Data and execute a notarized Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release (“Affidavit”), as well as a liability, image and publicity release for the guest of each potential Prize winner (where such release may contain provisions relating to exposure to COVID-19 at the Event), and return such Affidavit within five (5) days following attempted notification.  In addition, each potential Prize winner may be required to provide picture proof of identification, which may include a driver’s license, passport, voting card or similar government issued identification, and proof that she/he/they is the entrant that submitted the applicable winning Entry.  

Non-compliance by a potential Prize winner within this time period may result in forfeiture of the applicable Prize, with an alternative potential Prize winner selected.  The return of a Prize and/or Prize notification as undeliverable may result in forfeiture of the applicable Prize.  In no case shall any Covered Party be liable in any manner where a potential Prize winner has not received notification sent from Sponsor or where Sponsor fails to receive a response from a potential Prize winner within the required response period.  The winning Entry, as well as the associated information of each potential Prize winner, must identically match the records maintained by Sponsor in order for the applicable Prize to be awarded.  In the event of a dispute, the information maintained by Sponsor will govern.  Entries will be deemed made by the person under whose e-mail address the Entry was submitted, regardless of who actually submitted the Entry.



(a)        Prize.  Each of the ten thousand (10,000) Prize winners will receive two (2) tickets (each, a “Prize”) for the 2023 Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Tailgate Presented by Cash App event (the “Event”); provided, however, that the Event has limited capacity, entry shall be granted on a first come, first served basis, and only the first ten thousand (10,000) Event ticket holders will be permitted entry into the Event.

(b)        Approximate Retail Value.  The approximate retail value (“ARV”) of each Prize is Fifty Dollars ($50.00).  No Prize winner will receive the difference between the actual Prize value and the ARV.

(c)        Prize Terms and Conditions.  Limit one (1) Prize per household.  The specifics of all aforementioned elements of the Prizes shall be determined in the sole and exclusive discretion of Sponsor.  Some restrictions may apply.     

The Prize winner and guest are solely responsible for obtaining transportation to and from the Event.  Additional activities and features may, but will not necessarily, be made available to the Prize winner and guest for free.  No part of the Prize is transferable or may be converted to a cash payment, resold, included in a separate promotion, or otherwise distributed to any member of the general public.   

(d)        Force Majeure.  The Covered Parties are not responsible or liable to any entrant or potential Prize winner (or any person claiming through such entrant or potential Prize winner) for failure to supply the applicable Prize or any part thereof, by reason of any acts of God, any action, regulation, order or request by any governmental or quasi-governmental entity (whether or not the action, regulations, order or request proves to be invalid), equipment failure, threatened terrorist acts, terrorist acts, air raid, blackout, act of public enemy, earthquake, volcanic eruption, war (declared or undeclared), fire, flood, COVID-19 or any virus, disease and/or pandemic, as well as any private sector or governmental response thereto, explosion, unusually severe weather, hurricane, embargo, labor dispute or strike (whether legal or illegal) labor or material shortage, transportation interruption of any kind, work slow-down, civil disturbance, insurrection, riot, or any other cause beyond the sole control of Sponsor (collectively, “Force Majeure Events”).



The odds of winning a Prize depend on the number of entrants in the Promotion Database at the conclusion of each Promotion Day during the Promotion Period, and the number of potential winning entries selected by Sponsor at the end of each such Promotion Day. The odds of winning a Prize can be calculated by dividing the number of Prizes to be awarded at the end of each Promotion Day by the total number of entrants in the Promotion Database at the conclusion of that Promotion Day.

Promotion entry constitutes permission for Sponsor to use entrants’ names and likenesses, biography and voice for advertising and promotional purposes without further compensation, unless otherwise prohibited by law. 



By entering the Promotion, each entrant agrees to release and hold harmless Sponsor, Personality, Knuckle Sandwich, LLC, the Law Office of Jeffrey B. Gandel, Cash App® and all other sponsors of the Event and their respective representatives, affiliates, subsidiaries, parents, agents, and their respective members, officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, “Covered Parties”) from and against any and all liability for any injuries, loss or damage of any kind arising from, or in connection with, the Promotion (including each Prize, and all travel associated with attending the Event, as applicable) including, but not limited to, liability arising from copyright infringement, improper use of likeness, personal injury, death, damages or monetary loss.  Restrictions, conditions and limitations apply.  By entering, each entrant further agrees that, in the event that there is any conflict or other inconsistency between the Contest Rules and any advertisements, promotional or marketing materials, e-mails or announcements relevant to the Promotion, these Contest Rules will govern.


These Contest Rules shall be treated as though they were executed and performed in New York, New York and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York (without regard to conflict of law principles).  The parties (and Covered Parties) hereby agree to arbitrate all claims that may arise under and/or relate to the Promotion and/or these Contest Rules.  Without limiting the foregoing, should a dispute arise between the parties/any Covered Parties including, without limitation, any matter concerning the Promotion, the Prizes, the terms and conditions of these Contest Rules or the breach of same by any party hereto: (a) the parties/Covered Parties agree to submit their dispute for resolution by arbitration before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in New York, NY, in accordance with the then current Commercial Arbitration rules of the AAA; and (b) you agree to first commence a formal dispute proceeding by completing and submitting an Initial Dispute Notice which can be found here. The Covered Party(ies) named in your Initial Dispute Notice (collectively, the “Named Parties”) may choose to provide you with a final written settlement offer after receiving your Initial Dispute Notice (“Final Settlement Offer”).  If the applicable Named Party(ies) provide(s) you with a Final Settlement Offer and you do not accept it, or such Named Party(ies) cannot otherwise satisfactorily resolve your dispute and you wish to proceed, you must submit your dispute for resolution by arbitration before the AAA, in your county of residence, by filing a separate Demand for Arbitration, which is available here.  For claims of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) or less, you can choose whether the arbitration proceeds in person, by telephone or based only on submissions.  If the arbitrator awards you relief that is greater than the applicable Final Settlement Offer, then the Named Party(ies) will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration and, if you retained an attorney to represent you in connection with the arbitration, the Named Party(ies) will reimburse any reasonable attorneys’ fees that your attorney accrued for investigating, preparing and pursuing the claim in arbitration. Any award rendered shall be final and conclusive to the parties and a judgment thereon may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.  Although the Named Party(ies) may have a right to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses if Named Party(ies) prevail(s) in arbitration, the Named Party(ies) will not seek such an award from you unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous. 

To the extent permitted by law, you agree that you will not bring, join or participate in any class action lawsuit as to any claim, dispute or controversy that you may have against any of the Covered Parties.  You agree to the entry of injunctive relief to stop such a lawsuit or to remove you as a participant in the suit. You agree to pay the attorney’s fees and court costs that any Covered Party incurs in seeking such relief. This provision preventing you from bringing, joining or participating in class action lawsuits: (i) does not constitute a waiver of any of your rights or remedies to pursue a claim individually and not as a class action in binding arbitration as provided above; and (ii) is an independent agreement. You may opt-out of these dispute resolution provisions by providing written notice of your decision within thirty (30) days of the date that you first enter the Promotion.   


The Covered Parties are not responsible for lost, interrupted or unavailable network server or other connections, miscommunications, failed telephone or computer transmissions or technical failure, lost Entries, jumbled, scrambled or misdirected transmissions, or other error of any kind, whether human, mechanical or electronic.  Persons found tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Promotion, as solely determined by Sponsor, will be disqualified.  If disqualified for any of the above reasons, Sponsor reserves the right to terminate entrant’s eligibility to participate in the Promotion.  In the event that any portion of the Promotion is compromised by technical error, virus, bugs, non-authorized human intervention or other causes beyond the control of Sponsor which, in the sole opinion of Sponsor, corrupts or impairs the administration, security, fairness or proper determination of the Promotion, Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to suspend or terminate the Promotion or any part of the Promotion, or any combination of the above.  The Covered Parties are not responsible for any problem with Entries generated by computer hardware or software malfunction, error or failure, whatever the cause.  


You agree to release, indemnify and hold the Covered Parties harmless from and against any and all claims, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and settlement costs), damages, suits, costs, demands and/or judgments whatsoever, made by any third party due to or arising out of: (a) your improper and/or unauthorized participation in the Promotion; (b) your breach of these Contest Rules; and/or (c) your violation of any rights of another individual and/or entity.  The provisions of this paragraph are for the benefit of the Covered Parties.  Each of these individuals and entities shall have the right to assert and enforce these provisions directly against you on its own behalf.


Any attempt by any individual, whether or not an entrant, to damage, destroy, tamper with or vandalize the Site and/or associated technology, or otherwise interfere with the operation of the Promotion, is a violation of criminal and civil law and Sponsor will diligently pursue any and all remedies in this regard against any offending individual or entity to the fullest extent permissible by law and in equity.
