Celebrate the First Day of Spring with Free Macarons!

Can this day get any better? Just when we thought it was enough that spring has finally started and 70 degree days are becoming the norm, a bunch of French bakeries have decided that today is also “Macaron Day,” and they’ll be handing out FREE samples of the colorful, circular morsels!

Organized by macaron master François Payard, today marks the third annual Macaron Day in NYC, which essentially means that the spring version of trick-or-treating can commence: stop by any –or all- of the 16 participating bakeries and mention “Macaron NYC Day” for a free almond and egg white cookie fille with decadent buttercream.
 
 
Of the bakeries that are participating, here are our neighborhood favorites:
 
Battery Park and SoHo: François Payard Bakery
West Village: Bosie Tea Parlor
Financial District, Upper East Side, Midtown West: Le Maison du Chocolat
Upper West Side: Bouchon Bakery
 
Each participating shop has Macaron Cards you can add stickers to; the more bakeries you stop at, the more you’ll fill up your card. When your card is complete, you can redeem it at Francois Payard Bakery West Houston for a FREE 12-piece box of macarons.
 
See? Hard work does pay off, so keep hustlin’.
