Creative Ways to Celebrate Easter in Broward and Palm Beach Counties

Easter and brunch go together like sodium-laced store-bought ham and canned pineapple slices. If you want the traditional eggs Benedict and carved roast

beef holiday experience, check out our lists of Broward and Palm Beach restaurants serving Easter meals. If you're looking to do something a little out of the ordinary this Sunday, we've got a handful of creative ways to celebrate Easter in Broward and Palm Beach counties, after the jump.

Gospel Easter brunch at Lips -- A feisty alternative to the more staid traditional Easter Sunday service: Drag dining mainstay Lips

will host a gospel Easter brunch and Easter-hat contest. Admission

($28.50 per person) includes a three-course meal and unlimited mimosas,

champagne, and bloody marys, plus a drag show. Seatings are at noon and

2:30 p.m. Call 954-567-0987. 

Fortune-cookie hunt in Boca Raton -- If plastic eggs filled with melted candy seem sorta blasé, consider the fortune-cookie hunt at Philippe by Philippe Chow in Boca Raton. The restaurant is open 4 to 11 p.m. to serve Easter dinner to kids and grownups alike.

"Hoppy Easter" at World of Beer in Coconut Creek -- Satiate your inner beer snob with a lineup of hop-heavy beers at World of Beer in Coconut Creek. Special selections include Bell's Hopslam (limit of one draft/two bottles per person), Dogfish Head Aprihop, Red Brick HotLanta IPA, and Sierra Nevada Hoptimum. The celebration is noon to 5 p.m.
