{Food Events} Macaron Day NYC 2011 THIS SUNDAY!

Be still my beating heart...I'm so excited! This Sunday (March 20, 2011) is Macaron Day NYC 2011!  What is Mac Day? If you saw my whirlwind macaron tour of NYC post featuring last year's 1st annual Macaron Day NYC, you know that it's a day full of sugar and fun. Inspired by the Jour du Macaron in Paris, Macaron Day NYC features 16 bakeries offering a free macaron to customers who mention Macaron Day NYC.  At many of the participating bakeries, a portion of Sunday's macaron sales will be donated to City Harvest.  This year, I'm going to try as many as I can (and will likely buy a few too for charity).  And with all of these sugary treats, I'll definitely be bringing a bottle of water with me!

    Oh boy! I can already sense that you will be bouncing off the walls! I might just stop to try David Burke's macaron.

    I see David Burke is not on the list. Perhaps La Maison du Chocolate, they have the best macarons!

  3. I love the macs at La Maison du Chocolat! I'm going to try and go to places whose macarons I haven't tried yet, but will def try one of Payard's places since he started this event and I know for sure a portion of his mac sales are going to City Harvest.

  4. I cannot wait to read your post this year Andrea!
