They say everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day in New York City. March 17 is a religious day of honor for Saint Patrick of Ireland, and the mid-month holiday has also become a free-for-all celebration of green statement pieces, Jameson, and Irish culture in general. Whether due to its proximity to spring or abundance of green beer, the boozy holiday is a cornucopia of come one, come all carousing.
This year, shake up your shamrocks over green eggs and ham at a Brooklyn Cidery, board a yacht party, and, of course, celebrate along the St. Patrick’s Day Parade route. Whether you’re a direct descendant of the great patron himself, toasting to the 4% of Irish blood your home DNA test detected, or just looking for an excuse to get the hell out of your apartment, we’ve got your St. Patrick’s social calendar covered.
