The hangover truck

So apparently NY is very into St Patrick's day. I read somewhere that NYC has the largest St Patrick's day parade in the world! Unfortunately, I didn't know this until the day before and had to work rather than attend the parade. This city really loves their parades...Macy's day parade, Yankees parade, Chinese New Year parade, Puerto Rican day parade, Halloween parade-you name it, there is a parade for it. And of course yesterday all of the bars were full to the brim with St. Patty's day celebrators. I definitely wore green to work for the occasion and I may have joined the bar crowd for a bit (of course sipping my club soda with cranberry juice) for a work happy hour.

The most amusing thing to me about St Patrick's day in the city is the day afterwards. As we were walking back from lunch in Battery Park today (did I mention that it was almost 70 degrees outside? i am LOVING it!) we passed a tabasco truck. Apparently these trucks appear all over the city today only, serving up bloody marys for those with crazy hangovers (apparently those help with a hangover?) from too much celebrating last night. What?!? Gotta love NYC...
