Is your venue ready to make some green?
St. Patrick’s day is a big revenue driver for hospitality businesses and customers are ready to celebrate this year. 54 percent of Americans plan to observe St. Patrick’s Day, with $5.87 billion expected to be spent on the holiday.
Hospitality businesses typically offer holiday discounts, green beer, Irish food promotions, bands, and other entertainment. Your business can stand out and draw more customers this year by offering something different. Here’s a few examples from Tripleseat customers.
1. Murder mystery party
Chenault Vineyards, a winery in Richmond, Ky., might not be the first place on your list to celebrate a holiday that focuses on beer. Their St. Patrick’s Day event might change your mind. Their March Madness Murder Mystery includes a traditional Irish meal, a maple Irish coffee and shandy stout cocktail, and an interactive murder mystery about two strangers and a March Madness ticket mixup.
2. St. Patrick’s tacos
Kachina, a Southwestern grill located in Denver, is vying to be a St. Patrick’s hotspot with their Bangers & Brunch special. They’ve created the bangers and mash taco, which is a combination of chorizo, horseradish whipped potatoes, asadero cheese, avocado salsa, radishes, and lime on corn tortillas. Customers can also take advantage of sangria, margarita, and mimosa specials.
3. A holiday getaway
Customers are ready for any excuse to take a vacation, and The Brunswick Hotel in Brunswick, Maine, is happy to oblige. Their Lucky You Package includes overnight accommodations, an Irish whiskey flight upon check-in, dinner for two at Noble Kitchen + Bar, and a $25 gift card to Byrne’s Irish Pub.
