The Irish have observed St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, as a religious holiday for over a thousand years!

Not all holidays draw the type of business to a restaurant or bar that St.

Patrick’s Day can. Many restaurants choose to take advantage of this holiday by putting up themed decorations, dying the beer green, offering specialty cocktails and putting “Irish” menu items on special. On this day, restaurants can look forward to a little extra business from regulars, convivial folk out for a green beer, and maybe the customers looking for any excuse to enjoy another night out at their favorite watering hole. According to recent research from the National Restaurant Association, 28 percent of Americans are planning to go to a bar or restaurant this St. Patrick’s Day!

Hoffmaster St. Patrick’s Day tableware is sure to add to the fun and may even include a bit ‘o luck to you, as well!

As the Irish say…“For each petal on the shamrock, this brings a wish your way. Good health, good luck, and happiness for today and every day!”
