Last week on Facebook, the Columbus Zoo said visitors Easter Weekend 2013 will get a sneak peek at some 7-foot-tall dinosaur eggs this weekend.  The NEW Dinosaur Island is opening this spring at the Columbus Zoo.  The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium said  of the Dinosaur Island eggs  “They will be here at the Zoo the following weekend at Eggs, Paws and Claws (March 29 & 30)!”

Date: March 30, 2013 Easter Sunday Egg Hunt in Worthington at Wren House Gifts

Wren House’s email about the Easter Sunday Easter Egg Hunt at the store (a large graphic)  and the details of their Easter Sunday event were on ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio’ on Facebook this week.    Details from an email from Wren House about the Easter Sunday event:

 ”Join Wren House Gifts on Easter Sunday for an Easter Egg Hunt!!! Sunday, March 31 10:00 am – 5:00 pm”

Brunch and Buffet

Easter Brunch?  Open Table has a list of 24 “Easter Specials and Offers” at  Columbus restaurants.  The central Ohio restaurant’s  offers vary from “Join us on Easter Sunday!” to very specific “Easter Brunch” and “Easter Buffet” descriptions. You’ll get hungry just reading

Columbus Easter Brunch and Easter Dinner Specials on Open Table include:

  • McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood at Easton
  • The Refectory Restaurant & Bistro on Bethel Road
  • SPAGIO in Grandview

One Polaris area restaurant says “Please join us for our special Eater Hours” on their Columbus Easter Brunch and Easter Dinner Special. Typo? Is it missing an “s” ? Or is it on purpose?   It does not look like the Polaris area ‘Columbus Easter Brunch and Easter Dinner Special on Open Table’  is a brunch. I see “Eater” events at a Gahanna and a Grandview restaurants as well.   The three local restaurants are the same local chain.  Nothing “Easterish” about the menu  just special hours this Sunday?

The problem for me with a brunch or buffet on Easter or anyday is I become an “Eater” trying to get my money’s worth.
