Who said Easter egg hunts were just for kids?

“The Great Egg Hunt” in Williamsburg on April 12 will combine the springtime childhood tradition with a more adult ritual — the bar crawl. The event will see participants scavenging through Grand Street watering holes for eggs filled not with candy, but rather drink coupons, gift certificates, and other adult prizes.

“I used to love egg hunts as a kid,” said John Clemente, owner of LP’n Harmony, one of the participating bars. “Get a little alcohol in people and they all turn back into kids.”

The hunt, organized by the Grand Street Business Improvement District and event website TableHoppingNY, will include five bars and one restaurant between Union and Graham avenues. From 3–5 pm, Easter imbibers can scour the venues for drink specials such as beer and shot combinations or discounts on draughts and cocktails. The BID is hoping the event will lure new people down to its tucked away corner of neighborhood.

“This is a great way to introduce people to Grand Street,” said Artineh Havan, executive director of the business group. “We’re always trying to show off our bars and restaurants to people.”

The crawl has no start and end points — people can hop around from bar to bar, with stops at Burnside, Williams and Bailey, Huckleberry Bar, Bushwick Country Club, Dar 525, and LP’n Harmony.

Organizers said 300 people had signed up by last week. It is free to register beforehand, but costs $5 if you just show up. Either way, said Clemente, it is a good excuse to check out some new bars, and pick up a few goodies in the process.

“It gets people to interact. And to see what we have to offer,” said Clemente. “It’s something fun for Grand Street.”

“The Great Egg Hunt” (Grand Street between Union and Graham avenues, www.thegreategghunt.com). April 12 from 3–5 pm. Free in advance, $5 on day.
