What a time to celebrate! In 2019, March 5th is Fat Tuesday. The weekend before is a great time to party gold, purple and green. All of the partying leading up to Mardi Gras is called Carnival. Fat Tuesday is the last day before Catholic Lent starts. So bring out the king cake, the floats and beads. Host a parade, a dance party, a bread celebration or a masquerade. Mardi Gras is a great reason to party!
St. Patrick’s Day
A day to go green. St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Sunday in 2019, so consider having a night party Saturday night. On Sunday serve green beer, black eyed peas, sauerkraut and Guinness beer. Allow your team members to get into the spirit to keep your business lively. Everybody is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!
Spring Break (1st day of Spring)
Spring is a time of rebirth. It’s also a time that most school aged children have off of school. Use this opportunity to promote kids eat free, movie nights, or kids themed parties. Open up the patio and the play ground. Warm weather is near and summer will be here before we know it!
This year March Madness starts March 19th. Sports bars can throw events for every game. Everyone loves the opportunity to make their guesses. Create brackets for their customers to guess and let the winner have a watch party with specials of their choice. If your local school is playing, that’s a great opportunity to invite the community. Any sports games also lends itself to to-go promotions!
Hashtag holidays are simple holidays that you can use to your advantage. For 2019, March 5th #NationalPancakeDay; Friday, March 8 International Women’s Day #BeBoldForChange and March 14th #PiDay. Take the opportunity to get to know the women leaders at your restaurant to celebrate Women’s Day. Or even highlight women leaders in your community. National Pi Day is always fun for pizza parlors and restaurants that serve pi. Or what about a Key Lime Pi shot? The ideas are unlimited!
