Hop Your Way Into Easter Festivities


As far as holidays go, Easter always seems to sneak up. Not too many holidays change dates from year to year, let alone a full month, making it something of a surprise when all of the sudden next weekend is Easter. With the mountain closed and mud season in full swing, it might be easy to overlook this holiday. You would, however, be missing out on lots of great opportunities to fill up with your choice of tasty local options.

As with most dinning centric holidays, buffet style is the option of choice for many Easter menus. The Silver Dollar Grill has been rolling out their bountiful buffet for as long as anyone can remember, and with their stocked menu it is easy to see why it is so popular. Starting at 11 a.m. and going until 3 p.m. enjoy a full range of breakfast items, plenty of carved meats, a wide variety of sides, and of course, a full dessert display. It is $47 for adults, $40 for seniors, $21 for kids 8 to 12, $15 for 4 to 7 year olds, and free for children under 3. Streetfood at the Stagecoach might be new to the Easter brunch game, but their menu looks delicious nonetheless. They will be offering a whole roasted suckling pig at their carving station, huevos rancheros, and a make your own waffle bar. Check out their other breakfast options, extras, and desserts on their menu here. Seats at $30 for adults and $15 for kids under 10, call 307-200-6633 to reserve your seat. Teton Pines rounds out the buffet options for this Easter Sunday with a huge spread of their own. Snake River Farms carved ham, roasted leg of lamb, and an eggs Benedict station are just a few of the items that make their buffet so mouthwatering. You can view their full menu here. Do note that seats for their first seating have already sold out, so they will only be taking reservations for the 1:15 to 1:45 p.m. seating. It is $49 for adults, $23 for kids 6 to 12, and free to children 5 and under.

The cast of the Town Square Easter egg hunt

Easter wouldn’t be Easter without the thrill of the hunt. Whether that is for your traditional candy-filled eggs or something more adult oriented, you have a few options around town. The Jackson Whole Grocer will be having an Easter party Saturday. Bring your kids by for a chance to meet the easter bunny and get stocked up for Easter brunch. The egg hunt starts at 9 a.m., and there will be plenty of treats and samples to get you in the Easter mood. The annual Easter egg hunt on Town Square will be happening at 10 a.m. Saturday. The event, put on by the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, is in its 49th year and is a great event for families. The hunting is limited to kids 8 and under. One of the most exciting Easter traditions, the Easter keg hunt put on by Snake River Brewing will be returning this year. Keep up to date with clues via their Facebook and Instagram pages for your chance to win a beer for a year, the clues start today.

Steaks from Sweet Cheeks Meats

If you are looking to spend Easter at home, there are plenty of great options to spruce up your table for the occasion. The Local Butcher has your back if slaving away in the kitchen isn’t your idea of a good time. They will be offering everything from specialty meats to cook at home to fully prepared meals with options like roasted Kurobuta ham complete with all the fixings. Stay up to date on their full menu and pickup options via their Facebook page or by calling them at 307-203-22322. More details should be available early this week. Looking for something to make your gathering a little more memorable? Aspens Market is well stocked with treats, party supplies, and easter themed gifts. They will be open, along with Pearl St. Market until 9 p.m. just in case you forgot something the day of the party. The centerpiece of the Easter meal definitely has to be the meat. Lucky for us, we have two great options where you can pick up something a little extra special for the meal. Sweet Cheeks Meats offers a wide selection of locally sourced meat for your choosing. They fabricate a variety of cuts to order as well to make sure you get exactly what you are looking for. JH Buffalo Meat Co is another great option for something a little different. At their store in the Smiths plaza, you can find a buffalo and elk cuts for purchase. You can’t host a dinner without dessert and if you want something to truly spruce up the holiday Atelier Ortega has you covered. They will be crafting Easter bunny boxes and gourmet chocolate eggs for your pr- or post-meal enjoyment. Stop by this week and put in your order as they will go fast.
