Eat, Drink and Get Cultured this St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day—more formally known as Saint Patrick’s Day—is a cultural and religious celebration held every year on March 17, the death date of the aforementioned patron saint of Ireland.

A public holiday in Ireland, this day is also widely feted in the United States as an excuse to wear green, eat green and/or Irish food, as well as consume large amounts of alcohol.

What’s great about celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in NYC is how all-out this city goes. On the day, there is a giant parade along Fifth Avenue from 44th Street up to 79th Street from 11 am-5 pm. The parade itself is a dry event, but the rest of the day definitely doesn't have to be!
