These days, it seems like there is a #NationalDayForEVERYTHING. I can't log onto Twitter without the first trending topic dictating what my Instagram for the day will be. National Puppy Day, National Sangria Day, National French Fry Day, it's getting hard to keep up.
But fret not, my dears! Today we've compiled a list of every national foodie day happening in September (plus where around NYC you can celebrate)! Fact, there are TWO national days having to do with coffee, and I am so okay with that. Also, there's a National I LOVE FOOD DAY. Can we talk about that? Actually - we can't. My face is too filled with food.
Let the hashtags commence!
