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
