Happy St. Patrick's Day, New York! If you haven't busted out your best green attire and your four-leaf clover charms, what are you waiting for? The official festivities kicked off at 11am during Gotham's annual St. Patrick's Day Parade (you can watch it live here), but you know the celebration will only continue to escalate at the best Irish pubs in town. And quite a few New Yorkers are already glugging down pints of Guinness, singing Irish drinking songs, getting rowdy—and it's only noon. We turned to Instagram to investigate the activities, so if you're stuck at the office all day, prepare for some serious FOMO. But don't worry, there's still plenty of time and ways to enjoy the holiday according to our St. Patrick's Day guide.
