Restaurants and Bars Host Easter Egg Hunts for All Ages

Everyone loves a good Easter egg hunt; it's an activity that transcends age. Unlike trips to Chuck E. Cheese, which rudely requires that you have a kid in order to enter (still holding a grudge against Chuck for that one). Whether designed for families or adults, Chicago restaurants and bars are hosting special Easter egg hunts of their own this year. Take note and happy hunting: 


Longman & Eagle
Last year's basket bounty at Longman & Eagle

One of the ultimate egg hunts in Chicago is hosted by Land and Sea Dept. (Longman & EagleParson's Chicken & Fish), taking place throughout Logan Square on Easter Sunday, April 5. The fifth annual event this year launches from Longman & Eagle, where teams of two can register for $5 per person. The festivities open at 10:30 a.m., with check-in starting at 11 and the hunt at noon. Eggs are dispersed throughout the neighborhood, with thousands to be had. It concludes at 2:00 p.m. back at Longman & Eagle, with ample prizes for winners. The event at Longman & Eagle will also feature D.J. sets, doughnuts, and special rabbit sausages. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago. For more intel and to RSVP and register, visit Longman & Eagle's website. 

Things are a little more family friendly at The Allis this Easter Sunday. The coffee shop/cocktail bar area in the Soho House lobby will play host to an Easter afternoon tea from 2:30 p.m. until 5:00 p.m., featuring activities like egg-dyeing and an egg hunt. 

Between bites at Dusek's Board & Beer, bring the brood to the egg hunt for all ages at Thalia Hall. The historic Pilsen space is hosting a grand egg hunt on Easter, with prizes that are worth hunting for. Swag bags include provisions from Dusek's, Punch House, The Empty BottleThe PromontoryHonky Tonk BBQ, and more. The Easter Bunny will also be in attendance for photo opps. The event is free to attend and kicks off at noon. 

A good old fashioned egg hunt is a nice, apropos way to cap off Sunday brunch. MAX's Wine Dive is getting in on the holiday hoopla with an egg hunt for kids and adults alike. Taking place from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., the holiday brunch shindig offers prizes for egg hunt participants, including $1 mimosas and a free meal. Reservations are recommended.
