EGGstravaganza Includes Easter Brunch and Spa Specials at Hillside Boutique Hotel
Want your Easter to be a little “eggstra” special? Head to Castroville for the annual Helicopter Easter Egg Drop, and then hop across the street to Hillside Boutique Hotel for a brunch “eggstravaganza!”
Sunday, April 21, at 10:30 a.m., hundreds of brightly colored eggs will fall from the sky over the grounds of the First Baptist Church of Castroville during one of the most unique Easter egg hunts you’ve ever seen. This free, fun, event is a Castroville tradition and one that the entire town enjoys, with locals including Hillside Boutique Hotel owners, Joseph and Jana Winkler, volunteering their time in order to make it extra special for the kids.
“Our family looks forward to this event every year,” says Joseph Winkler. “It’s unlike any egg hunt you’ve ever seen.”
After scrambling for eggs, the Winkler’s invite guests to bring the party back to Hillside for an Easter feast. Sip on Mimosas, Bloody Mary’s or Martinis as you take in the picturesque views of the rolling hills and Medina River Valley and dine on an array of gourmet fare that includes an Artisan Meat and Cheese Display, Salad Bar, Omelet Station, and Carving Station. Choose from a breakfast buffet laden with bacon, eggs, sausage, and assorted breads and pastries. Or savor the flavors of a brunch buffet with poached salmon, baked chicken, pasta, potatoes and more. And from cheese cakes to cupcakes there are plenty of desserts to satisfy “everybunny’s” sweet tooth. Kids can enjoy their own special brunch station and activities including coloring pages or playing tag on the lawn.
Want to sneak a little wellness in too? Owner and spa guru Jana Winkler has created a special Easter spa menu addition with a relaxing and rejuvenating French Lavender and Bergamot Body Scrub at 25% off. Guests who book this EGGstraordinary treatment will enjoy a complementary refreshing lavender lemonade and a scrub sample to recreate the experience at home.
Easter Sunday Brunch Buffet is served from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and the cost is $38 for adults and $18 for kids. For reservations call (830)538-3200 or visit hillsidetexas.com.
