Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got. Taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot.
Wouldn't you like to get away, where everybody knows your name?
Or, stick with us here, how about someplace where nobody knows your name, but the drinks are free instead?
If that proposition interests you, you'll want to sign up for the special contest Guinness is hosting this weekend, in honor of St. Patrick's Day.
The grand prize is a weekend with your best friends and the keys to an Irish pub - as in an actual, no foolin' pub in Ireland.
All it takes to win the prize is registering your name and posting a photo of you and your friends raising a Guinness on St. Paddy's Day, with the hashtags #GuinnessGetTogether and #Contest included.
A lucky winner and their guests will be chosen for a trip to Dublin in April, which includes a tour of Guinness' St. James's Gate Brewery that will teach you how to be a proper publican.
Then, it's off to Joseph McHugh's Pub in the quiet fishing village of Liscannor.
The pub will be renamed in honor of the winner for the weekend, as a DJ, chef, and Guinness expert lend a hand and show your guests a good time.
Bear in mind that you'll face some stiff competition for the prize: the contest is open to anyone from the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, USA, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, South Korea, Australia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and Singapore that is 25 or older. (Your guests must be 25 or over as well.)
