Things to do this Easter weekend - Miami Edition

Who says Easter needs to be cancelled?

Though many events + celebrations have been postponed due to COVID-19, Easter Sunday, doesn't have to be one of them. Below are a few ways to make Easter extra special, since it'll be one that we sure won't forget.


Let's get into the Easter Spirit PEEPS!


Take Me to Church

(Insert Hoziers song here)

You can stay connected with your church on Easter by checking to see if it’s hosting a digital service: Many religious organizations have been offering online services, so do a little research online to find one you can stream.


Easter Brunchin'

If you typically go out for Easter brunch or head to Abuela’s for her Easter must haves—don’t take it upon yourself to cook a multi-course meal. You want your groceries to last as long as possible.


Instead, consider supporting local businesses. Call around to see if any restaurants are offering a to-go or delivery special for Easter meals. Here are a few must brunch spots in Miami, Florida:


  1. Grails + Spanglish Grails Miami and Spanglish Craft Cocktail Bar + Kitchen will be offering curbside takeout this Easter Sunday from noon to 8 p.m. For  $40 total, the sister restaurants will be offering a three-course Easter Brunch Kit meant for two with options like Smoked Salmon Benedict, BBQ Grails Burger, and a Croque Madame Sandwich. 2800 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33127 Visit Website

  2. Eating House In addition to its all day brunch takeout menu, Eating House will also be offering Easter specials like Marshmallow Topped Pancakes, Cinnamon Roll French toast, and a Brunch Burger topped with Black Truffle Cream. 804 Ponce de Leon Blvd, Coral Gables, FL 33134 Visit Website

  3. Root and Bone Go Southern with Root & Bone’s Easter feast. For $80 guests get four deviled eggs, a whole fried chicken with waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits, kale Caesar salad, four slices of carrot cake, and a bottle of sparkling wine with OJ or all the “fixins” needed for a Bloody Mary. The meal serves four. 5958 S Dixie Hwy, South Miami, FL 33143 Visit Website


Social Distance-Friendly Egg Hunt

Setting the kids loose on a field or playground dotted with eggs isn’t really social distancing, especially if you typically do it as a group with other families. Instead, if your home and yard have the space, tuck eggs around your house for your kids to find.


For a larger egg hunt, get in touch with your neighborhood group text or homeowners’ association. Ask families to decorate large Easter eggs on paper and then tape the paper eggs into windows facing the street. On Easter Sunday, families can head out in cars, on bikes, or on foot—careful to keep their distance from one another—to try and spot all the eggs in the neighborhood.
