Blasphemous Bunny

Easter without the religious paraphernalia


Skip church, disappoint grandma, and spend Easter Sunday drinking. It is, after all, still a holiday.
Whiskey at Longman & Eagle
Finding the most eggs at this Logan Square Easter egg hunt gets you more than a few bedazzled eggs. Your reward is a shot of whiskey at this third annual adult Easter egg hunt, which begins in the bar’s back patio and ends with you drunkenly crawling through a bush (hopefully).
Sun 1p. 2657 N Kedzie Ave., Logan Square (773-276-7110). $3.
Drag Queens at Kit Kat
Celebrate the progressive new Pope with something he, well, something he probably wouldn't go to: Easter Sunday bunch served with a side of drag queen. Yes, the special prix fixe menu just for Easter diners includes free-flowing bloody martinis, mimosas and sangria, plus performances by Diva Madame X.
Sun 11a-3p. 3700 N Halsted St., Lakeview (773-525-1111). $30.
Willy Wonka at Music Box
While everyone is out frolicking in flowers with bunnies, spend the day in a dark movie theater with Gene Wilder. Music Box Theater’s screening of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory includes candy, a costume contest, and a pre-show sing-a-long.
Sun 2p. 3733 N Southport Ave., Lakeview (773-871-6607). $12.

Tequila at Tavernita (pictured)
It’s time for your nieces and nephews to see you drunk. With a cocktail menu longer than the food menu, choose from the Little Market (tequila, fresh pineapple, Chile guajillo, cilantro and pico piquin), Emperor’s New Clothes (lemongrass-infused vodka, cucumber, honey syrup and lemon), or a dozen others at this boozy family-friendly brunch.
Sun 11:30a-3p. 151 W. Erie St., River North (312-274-1111).
