Check it out at Everything sounds yummy, but I feel like everything I need is in the $37 Bloody Best Bloody Mary featured on the Food Network. “Our signature Bloody Mary includes our Sexy Chicken Tender, a Nolan Ryan Slider, waffle fries, grilled shrimp, jalapeno pepper, pickle spear, and bacon.” Right?


4.) If Tex-Mex is more your speed, El Patio (4400 E Hwy 121, Lewisville, 972-410-2096) has an all-you-can-eat Easter Brunch by Chef Salvador 10am-3pm Sun, featuring an omelet station, Southwest salmon, brisket enchiladas, chicken mole, a dessert bar, and more, plus the Easter Bunny will be on hand for pictures.

5.) Let’s not forget that this Friday also marks the beginning of a Jewish holiday. Finding quality house-made items for their Seder table can be challenging for North Texas families who celebrate Passover. Following a recipe passed down through the family, the father/son team of Rick and Ryan Oruch at Sea Breeze Fish Market & Grill (4017 Preston Rd, Ste 530, Plano, 972-473-2722) is making gefilte fish for Passover this year. “While younger generations only know the processed product from companies like Manischewitz, older generations remember great gefilte fish balls or loaves made by their grandmothers.” A limited quantity of Sea Breeze gefilte fish will be sold in 3-oz portions for $4.50 each. Call ASAP to check on availability and place your order for pickup Thu-Sat.


6.) Hotel Drover (200 Mule Alley Dr, 817-755-5557) invites you to “hop on down” to its 97 West Kitchen & Bar, Lobby Bar, or Veranda Bar from Thu thru Wed, Apr 20, to try a Buckin’ Bunny. This hand-crafted cocktail is made with Blackland Gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, Luxardo Cherry Liquor, and Liqueur de Violette, with a Peep on top.
