I Shamrock NYC: Getting Ready for St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day in New York City is always a lot of fun. My favorite part of the day is the parade down 5th Avenue with all of the bagpipes. And watching all of the crazy drunk people. Luckily this year the St. Patrick's Day parade falls on a Saturday, so we'll be able to attend. Hopefully there will be no more of this snow stuff we're supposed to be getting today and a clear sign of Spring will be in the air.

When thinking about cookies for St. Patrick's Day, I was trying to think of something outside of the shamrock. Around this time of year, the street vendors in the tourist areas start selling NYC-themed St. Patrick's Day merchandise to wear during the parade. The most common item I've seen is the white I Love NY T-shirt with a shamrock replacing the heart. Inspiration!
These are mini cookies, made with a small copper T-shirt cookie cutter from coppergifts.com. Love that site. 

Of course, I couldn't totally forgo the usual shamrocks and leprechauns. I'm still working on those. 
How do you plan to spend St. Patrick's Day?
