Who Else is Eggcited for Easter?
By Betsy Morales
It’s that time of year again; when the sun shines longer, the air is warmer and you know spring has officially sprung. The promising warm weather lures the best parts of spring out, the Easter bunny included. Although this year’s Easter festivities may not be exactly the same as we’ve come to know them, that doesn’t mean there aren’t still plenty of ways to celebrate. From classic games to traditional feasts, here are some ways to have a very “hoppy” Easter weekend this year!
Egg hunt: You can make use of our beautiful parks and hide some Easter eggs with your family at Astoria Park, Socrates Sculpture Park or Rainey Park!
Egg roll: The rules are simple with the basic idea being an egg race: the eggs are either rolled down a steep hill or pushed across a lawn with sticks. Whoever’s egg makes it down first and without a single crack wins!
Egg dance: Be advised, this may get messy. The aim of this game is to avoid smashing any of the eggs. Gently scatter the eggs on the ground, turn on some music and hope you don’t hear a crack as you dance around them all!
On Saturday, be sure to have your ingredients ready for the mandatory delicious feast on Easter Sunday!
Head on over to our friends at the International Meat Market (36-12 30th Ave.) between 8am-6pm for all your meat and poultry needs. This wonderful establishment
has been serving the greater NYC area since 1996. The International Meat Market is family-owned-and-operated by John Stratigakis, “who is so passionate about his craft that his enthusiasm is transferred to the staff and business as a whole.” Not only are their products top tier, but so is their service! They even have cooking tutorials up on their website that guide you on how to cook pork belly, a stuffed cheese chicken breast and how to marinate a roast. Go check them out, you won’t be disappointed.
No matter where you choose to spend Easter Sunday this year, remember to be respectful of the people around you. Practice social distancing and mask up!
