Calling All Paddys, Patricks, Pats, and Patricias!

They say everyone's a Paddy on St. Patrick's Day, but this year everyone will be wishing they really were a Paddy (or a Patrick, Pat, Patricia, or Patrice). To celebrate the tenth anniversary of opening their doors to the public, the Guinness Storehouse will present anyone named Patrick (or any variant of the name) with a special complimentary "VIP Pass" (Very Important Patrick Pass) into their St. Patrick’s Day Festival. Non-Paddys are welcome, too, but you'll have to pay €15.
Festivities include fire-jugglers, street performers, Irish groups Rattle and Hum, Sliotar, and The Gravel Walk, musician Jimmy Smyth, Irish celeb DJs, a Céilí Mór, and a personal welcome from Arthur and Olivia Guinness characters. Visiting Paddies will be invited to taste Guinness variants—Foreign Extra Stout and Extra Stout, to sample Guinness brown bread with smoked salmon, along with other Guinness-inspired recipes (wonder if they'll have my cupcakes), they'll learn how to pour the perfect pint of Guinness, and they get to take home a hand drawn caricature of themselves enjoying same perfect pint.

Wonder if it's too late to consider a name change now ... I want that Very Important Paddy pass!
