Arthur's Day, I was rather confused when invited by a fellow blogger for this event, but when told it was Arthur Guinness' Day Launch Event, everything fell into place. Initially I thought Arthur was this rich KL fellow that held a party to celebrate his special day with Guinness Stout. After a quick check online via my iPhone, I was brought up to date on this event.

Arthur's Day media launch was held at The Beer Factory Sunway Giza in a run-up to the actual celebration day on 22nd September 2011. I guess it must be a very big date to have a media launch with free flow of Guinness Beer before the actual Arthur's Day. Check out below o find out more on what Arthur's Day is all about.
"Celebrate with fellow Guinness fans around the world as we raise our glasses for the third annual Arthur Guinness Day. Kicking off at 17:59 GMT on 22nd September 2011, we'll join together to toast the legendary Arthur Guinness, the man who created our beloved beer. From Ireland and Europe across to the USA, Caribbean and ending in Asia, 24 hours of global celebrations and live music events will mark another year of Guinness goodness. "

It was the place to be for good food, lots of Guinness Beer, some music and best of all, lots of blogger friends! The company of friends itself was enough to make it a successful event. I reached just in time for the buffet, and grabbed a couple of beers to catch up with fellow bloggers.

Of course, like any event where I'm invited to, I did not miss the chance to catch some pictures with the rest. I did realize my shirt was out of place that night, I was wearing a green shirt, which someone mentioned represented a competing beer brand. It did not deter me from joining in the festivities though. Just check out the happy faces below, and this was before anyone got drunk!

It was a good night with free beers and good friends, and I do look forward to the actual Arthur's Day Celebration which is going to be celebrated on 23rd September 2011.
