St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, and if you haven't heard, March 17 lands on a SATURDAY this year! If that's not the luck of the Irish, well then ... OK, it occurs every 7 years, but still - more reason to celebrate all day and weekend long! One of the top drinking holidays of any given year, St. Patrick's Day in New York City is one huge party day, and this year it'll be on a whole other level. Even New Yorkers without a drop of Irish in them will be wearing green proudly, drinking Guinness and Jameson and hitting the streets for the best NYC St. Patty's Day parties!
