Easter treats at Solo!

This weekend packs a lot of punch in the holiday department. First off, Good Friday is today, and if you're planning on having a fish dish, we've got you covered.
Of course, Passover continues through the weekend, so be sure to stop at the market and take home some kosher Coca-Cola (it's made without corn syrup) while on your wat to Blue Collar for a special holiday version of the Corben.
Sunday, however, is the big one. Easter and 4/20 are both celebrated on the same day this year. Which s kind of awesome, considering all the chocolate bunnies and marshmallow chicks you'll have left over from brunch to enjoy in the evening!
Weekend starts now! Hop to it!
Lobstah for Good Friday.
Good Friday Fish Feast at PB Fish
If you're observing Good Friday with a seafood supper, head over to PB Fish, the pop-up located at PB Steak. In honor of the holiday, the Pubbelly boys have extended their hours, serving seafood favorites from 5 p.m. - midnight tonight (in addition to the regular PB Steak menu). Seafood shack-inspired favorites include New England clam chowder dumpling; crispy clam bellies with lemon and spicy slaw; and a Maine lobster "shackwich". All items priced between $1-$22.
Last call for strawberry shakes.
Last Call for Strawberry Shakes at Knaus Berry Farm
If you're craving strawberry shakes and freshly baked cinnamon buns, head out to Knaus Berry Farm today or tomorrow before the farm stand closes for the season. They're open from 8 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. both days and the farm store is cash only -- so bring money!
Easter Treats at Solo
Sure, you can go to Target and pick up a few chocolate bunnies for those baskets...if you want your family to eat a bunch of chemicals. This Easter, why not treat them to something special. Solo Cafe and Patisserie at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach is making a selection of adorable Easter treats like lemon-caramel popcorn; strawberry-marshmallow rice crispy delights; passion fruit macaroons; Easter cookies; bunny cupcakes; and, of course, chocolate Easter bunnies. Call to place an order or hop in and pick out which edible critter speaks to you. Special tip: If you're picking up Easter treats, just drive up to the valet and tell them. They'll hold your car for free while you "hop" in and pick up a few items. To place an advance order, call 305-674-4727 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now this is gefilte fish!

We members of the tribe get a little antsy around now. The fun of seder is behind us and we're left with days of eating boxed matzoh and jarred fish that requires no refrigeration. There is more to life. Like a hot, delicious Corben at Blue Collar or matzoh ball pozole at Rosa Mexicano; or gefilte fish with English pea volute at BLT Steak. P.S. - you don't have to be Jewish to enjoy these interesting takes on classic Passover dishes. Read out Passover dining guide for the details.
