March 20th marked the annual Macaron Day in NYC where many bakeries and cafes were giving out the traditional French cookie for free. There was even a Macaron Day NYC 2014 map set up at macarondaynyc.com
Around 2:30 p.m. the website reported that it was down due to “to maintenance downtime or capacity problems.”
“Please try again later,” it read.
Here is a story about the event and some participating bakeries.
