    Easter Brunch at Swoop Garden

    Especially now that 2 Dine 4's Stephen Shallcross has made good on his promise to sell plants at the venue, we can scarcely imagine a better Easter brunching spot than this verdant Eastside gem where the food's as good as the Texas sky is big and they know how to do a mimosa up right. You want a feast that starts with field greens with crispy proscuitto and burrata and caramelized figs, then moves on to a crabcake benedict or roasted lamb chops, and finishes via a warm peach crisp topped with vanilla ice cream? Of course you do: Your mama didn't raise a fool, right? But we reckon you'd best make those reservations early, friend

    Farmhouse Delivery: Easter Feasts

    We recently featured Farmhouse in these pages, because of their quality and innovation and all around community-uplifting goodness – and, in no small part, because we crave delicious meals that we can conveniently complete at home. So including them in this round-up of Easter feasts (especially since they offer the likes of Pork Medallions with Creamy Mushroom Sauce, Ravioli Primavera, Classic Chicken Pot Pie, Roasted Lemon Dill Salmon, and more) is a choice as obvious as a bunny is fluffy.

    Northern-Southern: Baton

    This is a group show by relay, begun in July of 2020 as a method of socially distancing a community in the height of the pandemic: Artists took turns alone in the space, each adding to the exhibition. Now, as it nears its close, the exhibition resembles a community in which work converses and overlaps. With Adreon Henry, Vy Ngo, Dawn Okoro, Leon Alesi, Matt Steinke, Sev Coursen, Stella Alesi, and more.
    Closing reception: Sat., July 24, 3-9pm

    Quack's Bakery: Easter Specials

    All three Quack's locations – Lady Quackenbush’s Cakery in Mueller, Quack’s 43rd Street Bakery, and Captain Quackenbush’s Coffeehouse on Menchaca – are offering a myriad of Easter goodies for a limited time, including: A six-inch carrot cake that's also a "Bunny" cake ($26.50); coconut cake filled with coconut pastry cream ($32.50); DIY Easter egg cookie kits ($15), which are, we daresay, perfect for the kiddos; six-packs of macaron Easter eggs in flavors of Earl Grey, matcha, lemon, Dreamsicle, vanilla funfetti, or raspberry; and more. But, oh! There are also complete Picnic Baskets right now, packed with sandwiches, chips, and pickles, and desserts and drinks, and plates and silverware and a blanket(!); and these totable treasures are $35 (serves two) or $70 (serves four).
