RANDOM DRAWING: One (1) potential Grand Prize winner will be selected in a random drawing held within one week of the 318 Restaurant Week Crawfish Crawl ending date from among all eligible entries received and combined throughout the Sweepstakes Period. The 318 Restaurant Week Crawfish Crawl runs from March 16 to May 31, 2019 (the “Sweepstakes Period”). Odds of winning the Grand Prize depend on the number of eligible entries received throughout the Sweepstakes Period.
