Easter is the day to celebrate Jesus Christ’s resurrection-right? BUT as all holidays the meaning of it got watered down to easter eggs, bunnies, bunny-shaped chocolates, egg hunts for kids and a day off for adults.
Either way, Good Friday is about to be a GREAT Friday with the rest of the weekend. So after Good Friday Service for church-goers, here are some events you should check out.
Easter Egg Decorating Party
Who didn’t like arts and crafts back in the days with all the glitter, glue sticks and construction paper? Let’s bring it all back but make it better…it’s beer-and crafts for the grownups.
Gather up your friends and get into Easter’s tradition of egg dyeing and decorating but punch it up with some booze. Village Pourhouse- an ultimate pub is having an Easter party with an open bar with some good old beer and cocktails. See who’s the next artist and see how your easter eggs slowly demolishes after one beer after another.
WHERE: Village Pourhouse (64 3rd Ave at 11th St.)
WHEN: TONIGHT @ 7pm
Wear Spring head to toe
This is probably more of a warning for most New Yorkers. Easter Sunday means…Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival on good old Fifth Avenue. 49th to 57th street is going to be closed to traffic but unlike other parades, Easter Parade is much less organized and is more of a closed off area where paraders show off and check out each other’s bonnet. Definitely more of a tourist event but if you’re in the area, just be aware ;)
WHEN: Easter Sunday April 8th. 10am-4pm
WHERE: 5th Ave from 49th-57th St
