This Saturday, May 30, is the annual Easter Egg Hunt at Stead Park field on the 1600 block of P Street NW.

Last year the event drew a large turnout of kids and parents, around 200.The festivities included snacks, face painting, balloons and, naturally, a good sport who wore an Easter Bunny costume.

This year the Easter Egg Hunt starts at 10:45 am. The hunt will be in waves so all the kids get a chance to go — and and organizers say there are plenty of eggs. The event is sponsored by Lindsay Reishman Real Estate.

Come early to get a balloon, have your face painted and grab a snack. (Be sure to bring your own basket!)

"Weekend"

Weekend Warrior lays out local options for you. (Luis Gomez Photos)

In typical fashion, my body has decided to wait until the beginning of spring for me to come down with a vicious cold. While convalescing, I’ve done more crappy TV watching than usual (which is to say, a LOT). Inspired by the impending release of Jurassic Park in 3D, I even rented the sequel The Lost World, which just does not hold up (Julianne Moore’s character is supposed to be dating Jeff Goldblum?! Does not compute.)

Anyway, I may not emerge from my Dayquil-induced haze in time for the weekend, but that doesn’t mean YOU can’t have fun. Just think of me and the dinosaurs while you’re knocking ’em back.

Thursday

Pro tip: Room & Board, the massive furniture store on 14th Street, has an awesome roof deck and will even give you free bottled water if you behave yourself while browsing. Tonight from 6 to 9 pm, they’ll stay open late to play host to a fundraiser for Collective Action for Safe Spaces, an awesome DC nonprofit aimed at reducing and preventing public sexual harassment and assault. Tickets to the event, which features a set by DJ vANNIEty Kills, live music by Siné Qua Non, treats, drinks and free massages(!) are $25.

Friday

Have you always wanted to drink a beer named after Oscar the Grouch? Not really? Well, either way, you’ll get your chance at Scion tonight, where Oskar Blues Brewery will be rolling out limited edition brews (including an oSKAr the G’Rauch cask) as part of the ongoing Craft Brewers Conference.

If you’re not a Sesame Street aficionado, there are plenty of other beer events around town that will fit the bill, including a Drink Local! tap takeover at Meridian Pint featuring DMV area breweries, and an Avery Brewing Co. tap takeover at Churchkey. Check out today’s schedule for all the info.

Saturday

Most of you know Aziz Ansari from Parks and Recreation, where he plays the imminently quotable Tom Haverford. But what you may not know is that he’s as disillusioned and confused about our modern existence as you are I am. Treat yo’ self and snag a ticket for his 10 pm show tonight at DAR Constitution Hall. 

Sunday

My life hasn’t been the same since I was made aware of the existence of this photo of George W. Bush from the White House Easter Egg Roll in 2008. But there are other nice things about Easter too, like wearing pastels, spending time with family, and of course, brunch. There are a ton of options around town today, most of which still have spots available if you act quickly.

For my money though, you can’t beat Tabard Inn, whose cozy atmosphere is matched only by the insane deliciousness of their homemade donuts.

"Borderstan""Stead Park"

Saturday’s Easter Egg Hunt at Stead Park field on P Street NW brought out 200-plus kids and parents. (Luis Gomez Photos)

The annual Easter Egg Hunt at Stead Park field on the 1600 block of P Street NW drew a large turnout of kids and parents late Saturday morning. The festivities included snacks, face painting, balloons and, naturally, a good sport who wore an Easter Bunny costume.

According to Logan Circle parent Joelle Myers, “There were  about 100 kids and more than 100 adults there. There were lots of families on the playground as well. They let the age 2-and-under crowd start to hunt for eggs, and then opened it up to all kids. The kids really had a blast fetching the eggs!”

It was the 7th annual Easter Egg Hunt at Stead Park field, which is sponsored by Lindsay Reishman Real Estate. The turnout on Saturday confirms what many long-time residents of the neighborhood have noticed for the past five-plus years: more families are choosing to stay in the area after kids arrive, instead of leaving for outer DC neighborhoods or the suburbs.

Are your kids too young for The Hunger Games? Here’s a fun alternative that still involves some outdoor competition with neighboring children.

The 7th Annual Lindsay Reishman Real Estate Holiday Egg Hunt will take place Saturday, April 7 at 10:45 am at Stead Park, 1625 P Street NW. The event is open to the public and will include snacks, face painting, balloon artistry (!), pictures with the Easter Bunny (!!) and yes, Easter eggs!

Participation is free, but organizers ask that each child bring his or her own basket and make sure to RSVP. (Egg donations are also encouraged; they should be dropped off at Stead Park before 10:30 am, so the Bunny can do his work.)

Participants should arrive promptly at 10:45 am for the egg hunt. Please send RSVP to [email protected]

May the eggs be ever in your basket!
