With Easter coming up on Sunday — let's face it — you need an escape from the family. There are only so many questions about why you're still single and not doing anything with your life a person can take before they snap. Although we can't get you out of the country (sorry), we can provide some affordable and awesome options. Just like a hooker, these events are fun and cheap, but without the STDs and daddy issues. So pick one and enjoy your Easter egg hunt with a hangover!
