Does anybody know of any potentially enjoyable Easter themed events being held in Dubai this weekend?

Traiteur have an Easter themed brunch on Friday. The Dom Perignon Package is AED 2,998 per person. See you there?

That just about sums up Dubai brunches. An Easter brunch during lent costing 2 dirhams less (why 2?) than 3,000, including Dom Perignon. Hopefully this marks the end of religion.

I'm (genuinely) having an easter egg hunt at home with the mrs.

Ideas so far:

1. Put them all down my pants.

For her to find?

I'm hiding them for her to find, so at the moment, my pants are winning.

Or the washing machine maybe.

If she hides them in her bra and pants I'll be astounded.

In fact, she should hide them in her car, seeing as I'm paying 4,500 this weekend on repairs. :(

So the answer to my original question appears to be zilch, nada or zero.

I think it marks the end of Lent.

Right. That's it. I'm going to secretly paint an egg or two and behave like I'm a kid again, wondering WTF is going on and why all the adults are being nice to each other.
