Discover the luck of the Irish with St. Patrick’s Day celebrations all weekend, as well as a variety of fun food events to chow down on after all that green beer is consumed.

 

NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade

I’m not sure if good old St. Patrick ever thought he would be celebrated as much as he is, but the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in NYC has a long-standing tradition, and will make those of us who aren’t Irish celebrate for a day as if we are. The parade will begin at 11 a.m. Friday on 44th Street and make its way down Fifth Avenue. It will continue until 5 p.m. when it ends at the American Irish Historical Society on East 80th Street.

The parade is free, but arrive early for a better seat/to continue the fun from your kegs and eggs breakfast.

Irish Brunch Sponsored by Guinness

To continue the Irish fun by attending the Irish Brunch at Tavern on the Green that takes place on Saturday. Sponsored by Guinness, your $35 ticket will get you exclusive access to the bar with the first two pints on them and an authentic Irish breakfast buffet to top it off.

You know those sausages and beans are calling your name.

 

The Brooklyn Meatball Takedown

Mamma mia, here we go. Who doesn’t love a good meatball, and better yet, the opportunity to try a bunch of the best?

The Brooklyn Bazaar in Greenpoint is hosting this fun event, and $20 gives you access to all the best balls that Brooklyn has to offer. You then will get to vote on your favorite that puts all the other balls to shame. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Women’s Education Project, and it IS Women’s history month so all the more reason to attend.

 

The 12th Annual NYC Coffee and Tea Festival

Get your caffeine levels up all weekend at the 12th annual Coffee and Tea Festival at the Brooklyn Expo Center. Your $25 general admission ticket gets you access to more than 95 exhibitors pouring tastings of the finest coffees and teas. There will also be a couple of food trucks there, in case drinking so many samples gives you an appetite.

 

Time Out Wingfest-Brooklyn

In the final installment of the Time Out Wingfest series, Brooklyn takes all the glory this Sunday. Get your wet naps out one last time at Hill Country BBQ Brooklyn to sample the best wings that this borough has to offer. Your $35 ticket comes with samples from all participating establishments, including Dinosaur BBQ, as well as two brews and giveaways.

The Whitney Museum Biennial

Starting on March 17 and running through June 11, the 2017 Whitney Biennial is the seventy-eighth installment of the longest-running survey of American art. Throughout the exhibition, artists challenge us to consider how the reality of racial tensions, economic equities, and polarizing politics affect our senses of self and community. The exhibit features sixty-three individuals and collectives whose work takes a wide variety of forms, from painting and installation to activism and video game design. Tickets are $22 for general admission.
