Five Awesome Food Events in Dallas This Weekend, April 3-5
Rather than show up to your family's Easter Sunday shindig with the same old hot cross buns, why not bring some cookies, chocolates or other goodies you picked up The Bake Sale? The Bake Sale is a collaborative effort between Lily Hanson, of Hotel Zaza, Bolsa and Urbano Café fame, and Skye McDaniel, formerly of Village Baking Co. and currently at Murray Street Coffee Shop. These two will have a host of scratch made, sweet treats that you can either eat-in or takeaway.

What better place to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ than The Gin Mill. From Friday to Sunday, the Mill will serve an Easter Roast with all of Jesus' favorites: leg of lamb with mint sauce, roasted potatos and salad.

Let's face it: being an adult is awful. The closest we normally get to an Easter egg hunt is finding our keys, usually when we are late for work or when a child, still possessing some sense of joy and wonderment, has hidden them. But occasionally life returns a shred of joy to our lives, usually in the form of alcohol. This Saturday is one such occasion. The Cellar is hosting their First Annual Drunken Rabbit Easter Egg Hunt and Brunch. For $20 (you have to pay, because adulthood) you get brunch and an egg hunt. It's just like your childhood ... if your childhood included $2 Mimosas and a $4 Bloody Mary bar.
