WAIVER AND RELEASE OF CLAIMS
COVID-19 Update: An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public setting where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.
By participating in an Eat This, Shoot That Food Tour, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. Let’s keep each other safe and healthy by following our new temporary rules which include, but may not be limited to social distancing and wearing a mask for the duration of the tour unless eating or drinking.
Please also read our standard waiver and release below.
I am voluntarily taking part in the food and beverage tastings, photo lessons and walking tours (the “Tour”) provided by “Eat This, Shoot That, LLC” “(the “Company”). I am in reasonable health and am not otherwise limited by either minor or serious mental or physical injury, disability or illness that could potentially render me particularly susceptible to injury or disability while participating in any activity contemplated by the Tour.
In consideration of participating in the Tour, on behalf of myself, my heirs and representatives, I am agreeing to release from all liability and further agreeing not to sue the Company, its employees, contractors, agents, owners, vendors, business participants and all those connected with it from any and all claims, including claims of the Company’s negligence, resulting in any physical (including death) or psychological injury, illness, damages or economic or emotional loss which I may suffer as a result of my participation in the Tour including travel involved in the Tour.

Despite the above I assume all related risks, both known and unknown to me concerning my participation in the Tour.
I acknowledge that California Code of Civil Procedure section 1542, provides as follows: “”A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” I am specifically waiving any and all rights and/or benefits I may have against Company and the Released Parties under California Civil Code section 1542 or any other statute or common law principles of similar substance and effect, and represent, acknowledge, and agree that I am knowing and voluntary waiving the provisions of California Civil Code section 1542 as a part of this Release and Waiver.
MY PARTICIPATION IN THE TOUR IS AT MY OWN SOLE RISK. I agree to hold the Company on behalf of myself and/or any person or entity acting through or on behalf of me, harmless and forever and unconditionally release the Company, and any affiliated entities, parent companies, subsidiaries, present and former employees, owners, officers, members, managers, partners, contractors, insurers, shareholders and directors of the foregoing (including, without limitation, Hoffmann Brat Haus, C’est Cheese, Jamie Slone Wines, Au Bon Climat, Grassini Family Vineyards, Margerum Wine Company, Happy Canyon Vineyards, Enterprise Fish Company, Lucky Penny, Union Ale, American Ale, Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co, Cutler’s Artisan Spirits, The Valley Project, Riverbench Winery, Koval Confections, Mony’s Taqueria, Corks n Crowns, Sugar Cat Studio, Santa Barbara Wine Collective, The Lark, Helena Avenue Bakery.)

I further on behalf of myself and/or any person or entity acting through or on behalf of me, further agree to defend and indemnify the Released Parties, and to hold the Released Parties harmless, from any and all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, expenses (including, without limitation or exception, attorney’s fees) and losses of any kind or nature whatsoever in any way arising out of, or resulting from, my participation in the Tour.
I further agree to grant Company and Company’s assigns the sub-licensable, irrevocable right and authority to use my name, image, video presence, and/or photograph for any and all commercial or non-commercial purposes either now or later, forever without additional obligation or liability to me.
I understand this Waiver and Release of Claims encompasses the complete agreement and acknowledgment between Participant and the Released Parties, and terminates, cancels and supersedes any previous agreement or understanding relative to the subject matter contained within. There are no agreements other than what are described this Waiver and Release of Claims.
I agree that none of the items included in this Waiver and Release of Claims can be disregarded or modified unless done so only in writing, signed by me and the Company.
