Anybody go out and participate? We did it at Boondoggles, where I work, and I think we had about 200 people toast together. It went pretty well, although it's funny, because we only sold about 50 pints of Guinness for the toast, and some Guinness promoters came out and paid for about three dozen of those 50. So it seems like a money loser, but, whatever.

Well, I didn't know about it, but if I had, I would have looked for some place where Guinness promoters were giving out free beer!

It's always on a Friday, and it's pretty much the same day, yeah. Next year it's on February 15th. It's always 11pm Eastern, which seems bizarre to me, because that puts it at 4am in Ireland. :confused:

The first night we met, my wife and I did the Guiness toast (she's Irish). Haven't done it since. No good reason, really, we just haven't. Next year.
