In case anyone here doesn't own a calendar, or has just been living under a rock until this very moment: it's Easter this weekend. Personally, I think this is one of the best holidays out there - I mean, who couldn't love a long weekend dedicated to tiny adorable bunnies and excessive amounts of chocolate? But, despite how awesome it is, it can get pretty frustrating trying to figure out what's open and closed all weekend long.
