    BRUNCH TO BUNNIES TO THE BEACH: There are all of those room-long buffets to choose from. The dress-your-pet-up blessings. The famous Bunny Museum in Pasadena. The fancy hotels that are putting on egg hunts (including one near the beach) and putting out the baskets. And the zoo? Yes, the zoo is celebrating, too. Hop hop.

    "KING OF KINGS": Perhaps bunnying isn't your thing on Easter, or maybe you're looking for a to-do post-egg hunt. Cinefamily is screening the epic silent "King of Kings," with accompanying orchestration by Cabeza de Vaca Arcestra. Sunday, April 4 at Silent Movie Theatre

    THAI CULTURAL SONGKRAN FESTIVAL: Celebrate New Year's along Hollywood Boulevard with food, music, and martial arts displays. The larger festival included a curry celebration in 2009; look for more delicious offerings in 2010. Note that almost a mile of the boulevard closes on Sunday, April 4.

    BIG SHOWS: The Men of Soul Tour croons at Nokia Theatre on Saturday, April 3; that same night, Kevin & Bean's April Foolishness rounds up a whole mess of comedians to make the funny at Gibson Amphitheatre.

    TOM WAITS TOUR: We were imploring Waitsians to get tickets a few weeks back to this once-a-year Esotouric outing. Now the look-around at local spots associated with the legendary balladeer is happening, on April 3. We want to know more about the sawing off of home parts to fit instruments story.

    FEATHERS WILL FLY: Yes, it's International Pillow Fight Day, and, like last year, Pershing Square will be the scene of all the soft-padding mayhem.
