It is a time of year to celebrate regeneration, new life and rebirth. It is not all about the Easter eggs or bunnies (though they definitely feature). It is a time of faith, peace and goodwill. In amongst my Easter mail were recipes for left-over Easter eggs. Really! Surely not. Another email revealed that, allegedly, half of parents steal their children’s eggs. Who would confess to such a thing? You notice I do not say ‘who would do such a thing’.

Time to spend some time with loved ones and family. It could be a walk in the spring sun or it could be a meal out. It is a time for family and friends to come together. His & Hers has gathered together some ideas, adventures and a wish for relaxed fun, hopefully in the sun. Take your pick and mix.
Liverpool pre Eurovision is in party mood. The Royal Albert Dock has a wealth of activities, riverside walks, the Tate Liverpool, the Museum and some great restaurants. Not to forget the opportunity for retail therapy.
Tate Liverpool still has the Turner exhibition and a new exhibition to investigate. There is a great children’s room, with fun activities. The Museum is a space designed for all ages. Enjoy.
If you like Italian food; try Gusto on the Dock. Try a dish from the new menu and be in with a chance of winning a £100 Gusto Italian voucher. This is a beautiful venue with spectacular views of the Dock. The food is authentically good, sharing roasts with all the trimmings and a new menu to try. The service is friendly and efficient.
If Spanish tapas is your thing: try Lunyalita on the Dock is for you. Hams and other ingredients are imported from Spain, so the small plates pack a big flavour. Or try Maray or Rosa’s Tai café (both on the Dock and great destinations).
Elite Bistros have a lot to offer. There is Burnt Truffle in Heswall, Wreckfish in Liverpool (another restaurant in Manchester and one close to Chester) and a new pub the White Horse in Churton. You can go vegan, vegetarian, gluten free or diary free. The cuisine is authentically French.
Tonight Josephine is playing host to a variety of brunches over Easter Bank Holiday with prizes up for grabs. This Easter Bank holiday, partygoers have the opportunity to win hundreds of pounds at Liverpool’s sassiest venue.

There are a variety of brunches available to book over Easter Bank Holiday weekend. Enjoy a day of pure cabaret chaos, raunchy burlesque routines and table top dancing from the entertainers, plus of course, bottomless drinks and a tasty brunch dish.
If pop music is your thing, and you like more cheese than a fondue factory, Tonight Josephine’s Now That’s What I Call Brunch with the greatest hits from the naughties is for you! Think 2000, 2006, 2009, 2011 along with bottomless bubbles, beer and spritz cocktails and a delicious brunch dish of your choice.

The Metquarter has retail therapy a plenty and Urban Calm to pamper and soothe. Everyman Cinema offers great movies and a little luxury and indulgence. The Food Hall is a great place for a family lunch whilst out and about. Fergusons Bakery is one of my favourite places in the GPO. Check out any lunch meal deals.
El Gato Negro does wonderful tapas in beautiful surroundings, in Exchange Flags, a lovely part of the city.
Whatever your plans, have an amazing Easter weekend. It is that wonderful time of year. Much to enjoy. Surprise yourselves.
