To Your Health


At 11 tonight, hundreds of thousands of revelers in Irish pubs across the country will simultaneously lift their pints and offer a toast to their friends, bartenders and the memory of Arthur Guinness. It's the annual Great Guinness Toast, a marketing exercise masquerading as an attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records' entry for the largest simultaneous toast.

If you enjoy a pint of the black stuff, lift your glass at Fado, where one customer will walk away with a U2 box set and be entered into a drawing for tickets to see the band in Las Vegas, or at the 51st State, with its impressive collection of antique Guinness posters.

Irish pub fans turned off by the hype should head to Finn Mac Cool's for a glass of Beamish, County Cork's finest stout, and sip your pint in (relative) peace. -- Fritz

Does anyone else find the name of this blog utterly hilarious? The "Washington Area Entertainment Blog". It's like "Herschel Krustofksy's Clown-Related Entertainment Program". Just so over-the-top corporate sounding.

Well, the Post is a pretty big corporation.

How about some name suggestions then?

How about..."Don't call us indie rock, we're alt-country".

Give the GOGs a break, fellas. They're doing what they can to blog within the contraints of a corporation. I imagine that there was a naming committee involved and approval by someone with VP after his or her name before the GOGblog was christened "Washington Area Entertainment Blog."

Uh, how about "The GOGBlog"? or Blogog. It doesn't take huge amounts of creativity. Christ, even "The Going Out Gurus Entertainment Blog" would be better.
