Easter Eggs are a food, right?

For our friends at the East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District we're passing along information about a couple of really fun events that are happening soon. On Saturday, March 31, 2012 (that's THIS Saturday), EPABID is hosting an Easter Egg hunt at Le Virtu's garden (1927 East Passyunk Avenue). Bring your kids to the Avenue for a FREE Easter Egg Hunt! Kids will receive bags to decorate and use to hunt for Zitner's Fine Confections and candy filled eggs. The Easter Bunny will be hopping around. Lucky egg hunters will find "golden ticket" eggs with certificates for large one-pound Zitner's chocolate eggs and treats from Ms. Goody Cupcakes, who is debuting her cupcake truck at the event. Times are staggered by age group: 11am - ages 4 and under, 12 noon - ages 5 to 7, 1pm - ages 8 to 10. Select restaurants will offer kid-friendly brunch that day, including Black N Brew, South Philly Bar & Grill and $1 pancakes at Fuel. Many of the child-oriented shops will have special Easter sales. This event is free and rain or shine. Special thanks to Zitner's, Le Virtu, Ms. Goody Cupcakes and the South Philly Review. And on Saturday, April 28 from noon to 4pm, East Passyunk Avenue will once again host Flavors of the Avenue. Tickets are on sale at VisitEastPassyunk.org. Proceeds from the event will be used to hire police again to patrol the Avenue on Fridays & Saturdays during the summer from 12:30am-3:30am. So start your day at the southern end of East Passyunk Avenue for Flavors before moving on up to Passyunk Gardens at East Passyunk and Wharton for the Happy 2nd Anniversary, South Philly Food Co-op party from 1pm to 4pm.
