Bring the kids, stay for brunch deals – Easter egg hunt Saturday


A little family fun — paired with cheap adult beverages, if you like — is going down this weekend along East Passyunk Avenue.

The Business Improvement District is holding a free Easter egg hunt for the little-uns. Kids will first decorate bags for egg collection, then you let ’em loose by age group, starting at 11 a.m. for 4 and under, noon for age 5 to 7 and 1 p.m. for 8 to 10. It’s at the South Philly Older Adults Center at Passyunk and Dickinson.

Afterward, several restaurants, including POPE, Cantina and Chhaya, will have brunch specials. POPE, for instance, will have $3 mimosas and bloody marys. Check out the full lineup of specials here. They include a free cookie at the soon-to-be Vanilya Bakery, which is getting ready to open at 1611 E. Passyunk Ave.

Plus, you can get some cheap kids’ clothes at the CityKids Consignment Sale at Neumann Goretti High School, 11th and Moore from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Sunday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. For info:
