Default Easter Weekend Festivities

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

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.

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.
