Getaways: Easter weekend and a Bunny Bonanzoo

This weekend the weather should be a bit better than last weekend’s, and more suitable for letting the kiddies loose on the lawn for Easter egg hunting.

But if you’re looking for a more fun venue this year, the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is having their Bunny Bonanzoo. Free with zoo admission, children can go egg hunting in the fields of Waterfowl Lake Pavilion near the zoo’s main gate entrance.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., children who find five different eggs will receive Mary Sue candy treats. And if your child isn’t up for egg hunting, the festival also has games, crafts and children’s entertainers, as well as food vendors. The excitement starts Friday and lasts through Sunday.

For some Easter brunches, Langermann’s in Baltimore, The Rumor Mill in Ellicott City and Donna’s in Cross Keys and Columbia have good offerings for that Sunday. (Sorry for the unintentional pun.)

And if you feel pretty (oh so pretty) and want to step out for a night on the town, “West Side Story” will be at the Hippodrome for the weekend and is a good excuse to get out. The musical will run Friday through Sunday at different times, and tickets range from $22 to $77. So check out the Hippodrome’s site for more details.
