Just because you're too old to hunt for eggs doesn't mean you can't have a fun Easter. Here's the rundown on three food-and-fun pairings, whether you wake up early or sleep way past noon.
Sunrise & Beer Biscuits at Barbec's
Grab a blanket, pull up a piece of shoreline, and catch the sunrise over White Rock Lake before hiking over to Barbec's for a hearty (and cheap) breakfast loaded with bacon, eggs, and their famous beer biscuits.
Open 7:30a. 8949 Garland Rd., East Dallas (214-321-5597).
Brunch at Marquee Grill & A Movie
Bloody Marys and carafes of sangria (above) set the stage for a special three-course, fixed price Easter Brunch menu featuring crab cakes benedict, steak and eggs or shredded chicken chilaquiles. Then let the food coma set in while watching a movie upstairs.
$37 for 3 courses. Reservations recommended. 33 Highland Park Village, Highland Park (214-522-6035).
Easter in the Park & Dinner at Steel
Catch live entertainment, a hilarious pooch parade, and an Easter bonnet contest on the lawn at Lee Park . Then keep your parking spot and walk to Steel for a four-course Dungeness crab feast and half-price bottles of wine.
$48 for 4 courses. Reservations recommended. 3180 Welborn St. in the Centrum Building, Oak Lawn (214-219-9908).
