Guinness drinkers across the country will try to break the record for the largest simultaneous toast next Friday, February 15th for the The Great Guinness Toast. Since it’s inception in 1993, each year the toast breaks it’s own record!
The concept of collectively raising a glass on the 3rd Friday in February and toasting with the famous black and creamy brew is an attempt to gain entrance into one of Arthur Guinness’ other select clubs; The Guinness Book of World Records.
Bars, Clubs, Pubs, Restaurants and all types of drinking establishments all around the country put up posters, hand out door prizes and even raise funds for charity, all to be a part of the famous simultaneous toast…and you don’t even have to be Irish!
Look for locations around Pittsburgh participating in this year’s toast! The 21st Annual Great Guinness Toast! is Friday, February 15th 2013 @ 11:00pm EST.
