So there’s the kids’ version of Easter egg hunts: running around a manicured lawn and knocking other kids down to get to colorful plastic eggs filled with all the candy.

Then there’s the adult version: zigging and zagging through church traffic to get to that egg-y brunch dish they’ve been fantasizing about since Friday. No candy necessary. But a Bellini might be nice.
