As we’re getting ready for Halloween, let’s take a look at events happening this week.
Tuesday, 10/24: National Food Day
This day encourages people to eat “real” food. Promote some of your healthy options with fresh fruit and vegetables. Consider salads, lean protein and whole grain wraps and sandwiches for this event.
Tuesday, 10/24 through Wednesday, 11/1: World Series
Pack the house with one of the biggest sporting events of the year! Given the length of baseball games, consider having a new special every inning to engage customers. And whether your patrons are rooting for the Dodgers or the Astros, team-specific specials are sure to be a 'hit'.
Thursday, 10/26: National Pumpkin Day
Pumpkin beer, pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice martini, pumpkin carving… everything pumpkin! Feature your pumpkin menu items. Consider creating a “Pumpkin Patch” menu full of pumpkin flavored libations. Don’t forget to decorate your bar as well!
Friday, 10/27: National American Beer Day
Red, white and… BREW! Show some American pride by having specials on domestics or buckets of good old American beer. We can all appreciate some home-grown brews.
Happy Halloween planning. Here’s to hoping your Halloween parties are a hit!
