Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, Food/Beverage Editor, News Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO, MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - March 1, 2010) - St. Patrick's Day has a rich history dating back hundreds of years. In Ontario it is a fun day filled with all things the colour green and Irish.

ORHMA or the Ontario Restaurant Hotel and Motel Association represents the thousands of establishments across Ontario ready to help you make St. Patrick's Day fun filled and special.

On March 17th we collectively celebrate St. Patrick's Day. To some it is a religious or cultural holiday celebrating the Irish saint, St. Patrick. Credited with various wonders including banishing snakes from Ireland, St. Patrick is seen as an emblem of all things Irish. St. Patrick's Day affords a special day of celebrating with friends and family. In Canada and the United States there are a handful of St. Patrick's Day parades and cultural festivals.

ORHMA is reminding all Ontarians to make sure their plans are in place for this St. Patrick's Day. Create a fun dinner out or get away with friends to a hotel for the night. Make your plans today to avoid disappointment as your favourite place to go may be a wee bit busy that night. If you are looking for ideas to make the evening special, ask the restaurant manager for suggestions. Remember, if you have planned to tie in another occasion or two speak to the staff ahead of time to help make your night all the more fun.

Without question, the accommodations and restaurant sector of our economy has been very hard hit by the recent recession. It is said that we are the first into a recession and the last out. ORHMA represents over 11,000 establishments across Ontario employing thousands of workers.

So make this St. Patrick's Day the best yet and help out Ontario's economic recovery at same time. Make dinner or hotel reservations today.

ORHMA dates back to the early 1920s with a proud history of serving the accommodations and restaurant sector of Ontario for several decades. As the industry voice for the discerning Ontario restaurant, hotel or motel, the ORHMA represents 4,000 members.
