Easter in Las Vegas

Events, Things to Do, What's New — By thmeeks on April 2, 2010 at 8:16 am

If you’re in Las Vegas on April 4, Easter Sunday, you might want to celebrate the day with a delicious Easter brunch. Las Vegas is flush with excellent restaurants, but you might want to try:

The outdoor, pool-side brunch at Mandalay Bay’s Border Grill: Easter brunch is served on the patio from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. If the spring weather turns windy and sends everyone inside–always a possibility in Las Vegas–you won’t mind because the food is so good. Items on their Easter menu include Santa Fe Enchiladas and Manchaca Chilaquiles (made with slow cooked brisket).

Hash House A Go Go: They have two locations in Las Vegas, the first one west of the Strip, and the second at the Imperial Palace. Come prepared with a big appetite. If you eat at the Imperial Palace location, you can stop by the IP’s Auto Collection after brunch to walk off your big meal.

Brunch at the Ritz-Carlton at Lake Las Vegas: If you want an all-out sumptuous meal featuring everything from roast beef to duck, you might want to take a Sunday drive out to Lake Las Vegas. From this far out of town, you’ll get a great view of Las Vegas, and you’ll get to see the Ritz-Carlton before it closes in May.

Since Easter just wouldn’t be the same without chocolate, you could visit the Ethel M Chocolate factory in Henderson. Tours are free, and the Easter Bunny will be there from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
