What? What?! Who is Arthur? What is going on? I can only think of round tables.

Arthur Guinness, apparently. It's the latest marketing craze.

Yesterday was the 250th anniversary of the Guinness Brewery opening in Dublin.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Guinness

At 27, in 1752, Guinness's godfather Arthur Price, Archbishop of Cashel, bequeathed him £100 in his will. Guinness invested the money and in 1755 had a brewery at Leixlip, just 17 km from Dublin. In 1759, Guinness went to the city and set up his own business. He got a 9,000 year lease on the four-acre brewery at St. James's Gate from Mark Rainsford for an annual rent of £45.

Its sweeping the nation ... I'll be back in Dublin this evening, hopefully there is some left over.

I feel for those debutants last night, they are in for a shock today, dropping Arthurs kids off to the pool :wink:

Yesterday was Paddys day of Autumn. Great fun. One of the pubs in town is doing the 2.50 promo all weekend

had a great time for Arthur, drank my first full pint of Guinness....and then had my second ever...managed to get tickets for Vicar who had a great lineup, Dizzee Rascals, the Blizzards, the Magic Numbers, Ok-go, Razorlight and Ronnie Wood's son's band with a guest appearance by Ronnie Wood!!!! then headed over to Whelan's and blagged ourselves in to catch the end of Dave Gray....how fab and all on a Thursday night for nine euro! the vibe around the city was great, like everyone decided to take an impromptu holiday...most people went out straight from work to make it for 17.59 and conveniently forgot that they were working the next day....and for what it's worth all the artists played for free and all the money went to charity...

I'm confused ... I love Guinness, but hate baked beans.

Its not a trick, I promise ... Check out the bottom of this link, black n' black.

Some strange, strange combos here.

There are some weird combinations on that list - blurgh.
However, I have had some tasty cuisine which incorporated Guinness: a hearty beef stew and crispy battered fish fillets. Yum.

Guinness Beef Stew is amazing ... Not sure on the Batter Mix though. What colour is it ? Black/dark would be offputting.

The batter was a honey brown colour. I think the Guinness was mixed with an eggy mixture.
