Your weekend dining PLUS featuring the sleeping pet of the week

kimaLet's see, it's Easter. 

► Here's a list of Easter dining specials, and here's a blog post that covers largely the same territory. You'd think the two lists would be identical. Wrong.

► Bluegrass Tavern is holding its own little farmer's market on Saturday, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. They say they're going to have ramps and local asparagus and they'll be selling their homemade bacon jam. 

I made up a song about bacon jam; it's sung to the tune of "Muffin Man," and it goes like this:

"Bacon jam, bacon jam, bacon jam, o bacon jam; bacon jam, bacon jam, bake-bake-bacon jam."

► Today is Earth Day. Here is a list of local Earth Day observations. Except for this dining promotion at B&O Brasserie, I haven't posted anything about Earth Day at all. Maybe if a certain planet would back off a little bit with all of the pollen, I'd be more willing to throw this blog's support behind it.

► Elsewhere, Cirque du Soleil continues through May 1, the Universoul Circus runs this weekend at Security Square Mall, and West Side Story finishes its run at the Hippodrome.

Here's Chef Sam Sessa's video rundown of the weekend:





The sleeping pet of the week is Kima
