Blarney Blast sweepstakes includes fun social media components, such as Irish Toasts and leprechaun photos.

DALLAS, TX (March 4, 2015) – Everyone knows that “Every Day is St. Paddy’s Day” at Bennigan’s. And as this singularly Irish holiday approaches, Bennigan’s is going all out to build excitement for its favorite day of the year.

Beginning Monday, March 2, Bennigan’s month-long “Blarney Blast” promotion will celebrate the spirit of St. Paddy’s Day with odes to all things Irish – from Irish-themed food and drinks to Irish Toasts and, for the luckiest guest of all, a fabulous trip for two to the Emerald Isle!

Guests at every Bennigan’s restaurant across the U.S. will receive scratch-off sweepstakes cards offering the chance to instantly win a free iPad Mini, free meals, appetizers and desserts. In addition, guests are invited to take the fun online to by submitting their best Irish Toast and by taking photos of their faces inserted into life-size leprechaun cut-outs at the restaurants, then sharing them via social media. While online, guests can enter for the chance to win the Grand Prize vacation to Ireland.

“What could be more perfect than celebrating St. Paddy’s Day at Bennigan’s?” said Paul Mangiamele, Chairman and CEO of Legendary Restaurant Brands, LLC. “Well, winning a trip for two to Ireland sure sounds great to me! So come on in, get your Irish on, and let us show you what friendly Irish hospitality is all about!”

Bennigan’s is also featuring several Irish-themed entrees throughout March, including Irish Street Tacos, Reuben Egg Rolls, Corned Beef & Cabbage, Finn’s Beer-Battered Fish & Chips and Beer Cheese Soup. And you won’t want to miss their drink specials – each inspired by one of Ireland’s most vibrant and historic cities:
