It’s Easter week, folks, the first big candy feast of the spring, what with jellybeans, chocolates, marshmallow Peeps and that most coveted of basket items, the Cadbury Cream Egg.
Some insist on actual food, though. For those not into making the lamb, ham or what have you in their own kitchens, Boston Market will be open on Easter Sunday, featuring a $10.99 Easter special meal.
Undercurrent in Greensboro is open as well, with a midday menu running from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Make a reservation at 336.370.1266. In Winston-Salem, Mozelle’s is open all day long, with a brunch seating at 11 a.m. and a dinner menu all day. Reserve a table at 336.703.5400.
Easter-themed activities and events run all day long on Saturday. Old Salem kicks off the say at 9 a.m. with egg-dyeing in the Vierling Kitchen, egg-painting in the Vierling Barn, afternoon vespers on the Vierling Back Porch and a reading of John Huton’s “Easter Maus” at the St. Phillips Heritage Center. The Easter egg hunt, suitable for children of all ages, takes place at 10:30 a.m. in the Tavern Meadow. Buy a ticket at 336.721.7300 or e-mail info@ oldsalem.org.
The Piedmont Triad Farmers Market holds its Easter egg hunt on Saturday at 1 p.m. This one’s a freebie.
And the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market holds an Egg-cellent Day at the Market beginning at 10 a.m. No details at the city website on this one, but I’d bet there will be someone in a bunny suit running around.
In other news, Bleachers Sports Bar has opened in Greensboro on Spring Garden Street on the location that once housed JP Looney’s.
Not a real big stretch there. And Donut World, whose doughnuts are so good we even considered changing our style guide to accommodate them, has a new location on High Point Road where Best Bagels used to be.
Room for one more? A restaurant in LA has started tweeting the full names of customers who don’t honor their reservations. As a former waiter, I absolutely love this. They should take it one step further and tweet out the names of people who leave bad tips.
