St. Patty's Day Parade (And Other Non-Drinking Activities)

Yesterday, we compiled our annual list of some favorite St. Patty's Day drink specials. Well there are also many free things you can do today that don't involve drinking.

For starters, there's the St. Patrick's Day Parade which begins at 11:00AM and heads north on 5th Avenue starting at 44th Street.  And while you're in the area, stop into St. Patrick's Cathedral (at 5th Avenue and 50th Street)!

You should also keep your eyes out for folks from the Irish Arts Center handing out free Irish and Irish American books at subway stops and transportation hubs across all five boroughs. Starting at 6:00AM we hear you might be able to find them at: the Northeast corner of Dyckman Street and 200th Street in Manhattan, the subway stop at 7th Avenue and 9th Street in Brooklyn, the Jackson Heights Post Office in Queens, the Parkchester subway stop in the Bronx, and St. George Terminal in Staten Island.
