Get excited everyone, the best holiday of the year, Easter, is almost here! Ok, maybe Cinco de Mayo's better, and also St. Patty's, Christmas, 4th of July, Hanukkah, New Year's, Kwaanza, Boxing Day, President's Day, and pretty much anything that might give you a day off of work. But just because pastel-colored chocolates and egg painting stops being fun after (SPOILER ALERT!) you realize the Easter Bunny's not real, doesn't mean there aren't alternative, adult ways to have fun on J.C.'s big day. Here are some thoughts.
-Public transportation is shut down, at least 7,000 flights are canceled, schools and businesses closed, and over 450,000 have been ordered to evacuate as Hurricane Sandy, the "once-in-a-lifetime" storm of Biblical proportions pummels the Eastern Seaboard. [LATimes]
George Clooney belts out "Sweet Caroline" with Neil Diamond for Jane Fonda, Stacy Keibler and Nicky Hilton; Brian Grazer is honored by the Alfred Mann Foundation; Dita Von Teese, Marisa Tomei and Kristin Davis fete Cameron Silver's new fashion tome at Chateau Marmont; Jon Hamm, Anna Faris, Jeremy Renner and others attend the Reel Stories, Real Lives fundraiser; Travis Barker, Hugh Hefner and Brody Jenner help Snoop celebrate his birthday at the Playboy Mansion—it was quite the weekend here in L.A. and we have the rundown on the biggest and best events that went down in this edition of Last Night's Parties.
To be honest, the idea of a sports awards show never really made very much sense to me. After all, unlike movies, sports already has their own built-in awards in the form of championships and MVP awards and such. Why give out a redundant "Best Team" award when the Best Team is the one that already won (even if it is the much-hated Miami Heat)? But then ESPN's ESPY Awards come to town, and you realize that it's much more about the parties, like last night's blowout at the legendary Playboy Mansion. When you're surrounded by body-painted models, athletes, and Ron Jeremy, who really cares who's nominated for "Best Sprinter"? More»

Easter: Sure, it ranks below Cinco de Mayo, St. Patty's, Christmas, 4th of July, Hanukkah, New Year's, Kwaanza, Memorial Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Boxing Day, and pretty much anything that might give you a day off of work according to our Awesome Holiday rating system. But it is J.C.'s big day, and an amazing rare opportunity to bullshit around with Peeps (even bathe in them as seen above), so here are some thoughts on alternative ways to make Easter fun for grownups this year.
