Happy Arthur’s Day

This video says it all – Guinness 250. Happy Arthur’s Day folks!


By the way, have you guys notice the “portrait” of Uncle Arthur in bars/clubs all over the country? The one whose eyes seem to follow you everywhere, and suddenly start to plug an iPod on to listen to music, before looking all bored and back to the portrait mode again? Such a cool marketing tool!

Ps: good luck getting a pint at your favourite local, especially if your local is one of the participating celebration venue, and you haven’t got a ticket. It’s madness in the city of the black stuff! ;)

    Best pint I ever had was atop the Guinness Storehouse, there in Dublin. People here in America say it all the time, and it’s true. The Guinness really is better in Ireland.

    Though I can’t be there for the celebration, I will most certainly raise a glass to Arthur here in L.A. And Lil. And, really, anyone else I can think of, as long as I can keep raising the glass. ;-)

    […] Arthur’s Day was an unqualified success. In Dublin anway. The Buzz around the city (especially around Bespoke HQ next door to Whelan’s and The Village) was palpable all day both on the street and online. Not least on Twitter where thousands of Tweets were sent throughout the day about who was playing where. Haven’t experienced anything like it since the MTV Music Awards were held in Dublin. […]
