Drive-Thru Easter Egg Hunt
14715 N. Dartford Dr.
At Commellini Estate, they recognize the importance of social distancing and are limiting some of their traditional festivities. However, in the spirit of Easter, for safety and community, they are hosting their second annual “Drive Through Easter Egg Hunt.” The bunny has been working hard to hide eggs around the estate. All eggs are viewable from the safety and convenience of the inside of your car.
Upon arrival, egg-hunters will be able to count the number of eggs they can spot from their vehicle. They then submit their “guess” through their Instagram or Facebook portal. The guest who guesses the closest to the actual number of eggs hidden will have a chance to win prizes.
While you’re there, pick-up a gourmet meal or make-yourself-meal-kit from their curbside crew while you’re hunting for eggs. You can special-order from their Easter menu in advance, but make sure to book these meals far beforehand as they typically sell out the week before.
Everyone should always remain in their vehicles and leave all eggs untouched and in place. Eggs should not be taken, or else the other hunters won’t find them. Happy hunting!
Wednesday, March 31 from 4:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Thursday, April 1 from 4:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Friday, April 2 from 4:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, April 3 from 12:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Some Bunny Loves You Easter Bunny Grams
Stop the Silence is hosting a local fundraiser—Some Bunny Loves You Bunny Grams.
They offer personalized egg buckets to your specifications. The Easter Bunny Grams will be baskets full of Easter goodies.
The bunnies on staff head out super early on Easter morning, drop baskets off at your porch or hide eggs outside your house for people to find. They also offer egg-hunt kits and baskets so you can set up your own egg hunt as you please.
Last year they raised extra funds to provide egg hunts for women and children located in safe-houses and shelters. They also set up egg hunts at nursing homes and for some families in need of some bunny love!
They are currently working on a website where people can order their bunny post-grams in the mail. See the event posted on the Stop the Silence Facebook for more details and website info.

Adult Easter Baskets at Shawn O’Donnell’s
719 N Monroe St.
Last year, restaurants closed the day before St. Patrick’s Day due to COVID, leaving them with an excessive amount of liquor on hand. Though it’s been a challenging year in many ways, it’s also been fun to get creative and think outside of the box. Last year, Shawn O’Donnell’s offered Adult Easter Baskets, and they were a total hit, so they’ve decided to do it again.
Baskets are $40 and include a bottle of liquor, mixer, Irish candy and some Shawn O’Donnell’s bar swag (Guinness key chains, shot glasses, etc.). Guests can stop into the bar to check out and select a basket from March 28 through Easter. They continue to make baskets up until Easter, so there’s no need to reserve. They have plenty — just stop by.
The most popular baskets are the Irish Coffee or Whiskey Ginger Ale basket, though they have about twenty different variations to choose from. Each fun basket is unique using up-cycled baskets and decorations.
