First day of spring? Sure, whatever. (Free) Macaron Day NYC? HELL. YES.

What, you might ask, is a macaron? It’s a French confectionary tradition, a dainty cookie with a soft, almond-based shell with a creamy ganache center. Basically, it’s how the French do Oreos. Yum. Today, bakers all over NYC will be dishing out these bite-sized delights for free. Because, why not?

NYC Macaron Day coincides with France’s jour du macaron, and has been going strong since 2010. Courtesy of Macaron Day NYC, here is a map of all the bakeries that will be participating in this most glorious celebration. And go.
