Two Dublin pubs display ads for home-brewed Guinness stout on Arthur's Day in Dublin, Ireland, on Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013. Ireland's love affair with pub and pint is sparking national soul-searching as never before because of an unofficial holiday dreamed up by Guinness. Thursday's celebrations of Arthur's Day, honoring the 18th-century founder of Ireland's quintessential drink, feature surprise musical performances in 815 pubs and clubs across Ireland as well as concerts worldwide from Malaysia to Jamaica.
