DALLAS, TX (March 1, 2016) – While it’s true that “Every Day is St. Paddy’s Day” at Bennigan’s, it’s even more true when it’s actually St. Paddy’s Day!

And as this singularly Irish holiday approaches, Bennigan’s is pulling out all the stops to make their 40th anniversary celebration the most Legendary ever!

Beginning Tuesday, March 1, Bennigan’s is inviting its friends and family across the globe to join in the World’s Greatest Irish Toast! Simply post a picture of your “Cheers” on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #40YearCheers and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a fabulous trip for two to the Emerald Isle!

It’s all part of the month-long Blarney Blast promotion, during which guests at every Bennigan’s restaurant across the U.S. will receive scratch-off sweepstakes cards offering the chance to instantly win a free GoPro camera, along with dinners for two, appetizers, desserts and Coca-Cola products. Cards will be available at Bennigan’s restaurants while supplies last.

“One thing has become eminently clear over the last 40 years: Aside from Ireland itself, there’s no better place to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day than Bennigan’s,” said Legendary Restaurant Brands Chairman & CEO Paul Mangiamele. “Everywhere I go, I meet raving fans who have a great Bennigan’s story to tell. This March, those stories are going to multiply, and one of our guests will even celebrate the true luck of the Irish with a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Ireland!”

Throughout March, Bennigan’s is also featuring several Irish-inspired menu items, including Beer Cheese Soup, Irish Street Tacos, Corned Beef & Cabbage, Irish Whiskey Glazed Grilled Salmon and Irish Cream Cheesecake.
