Spring Events Bring Spring Fever To Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach
While the rest of the country eagerly awaits the end of a seemingly never-ending winter season, Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa has sprung into action, putting together an impressive spring lineup that is sure to cure travelers of any lingering winter blues. Whether visiting Florida’s best beach town for St. Patrick’s Day, Mother’s Day or Easter, the AAA Four Diamond resort has special offerings to put the spring back into guests’ steps. With its prime location in the center of the city’s Beach Walk, the resort makes the ideal basecamp for any of Clearwater’s spring festivals and activities, including the Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival, now in its second year, as well as the fifth annual Clearwater Beach Restaurant Week.
On Easter morning April 20, 2014, the skilled culinary crew at SHOR American Seafood Grill will prepare a lavish, family-friendly buffet where the Easter Bunny himself will make an appearance. Served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., SHOR’s brunch buffet will feature an assortment of menu items. Breakfast favorites will include eggs Benedict, an omelet station and fresh fruit. The seafood station will offer a selection of oysters on the half shell, shrimp cocktail, Dungeness crab legs, smoked salmon display and ahi tuna tartar. The cold display will feature creamy dill cucumber salad and spinach and pomegranate salad. A charcuterie station will offer handcrafted cheeses and a selection of artisan-cured meats, including garlic-cured salami, air-dried beef and soppressata. Action stations will serve up bourbon honey glazed pit ham, prime rib with SHOR’s signature pretzel rolls and chive horseradish cream, mojo marinated pork loin, sautéed grouper and creamy orzo pasta primavera. Of course, no SHOR buffet would be complete without an endless bloody Mary and mimosa bar and a decadent dessert display of flourless chocolate cake, traditional Apple pie, chocolate pecan pie, strawberry swirl cheesecake and coconut creme brulee shooters.
SHOR welcomes both resort guests and the public. Brunch will be available for $55 per adult and $25 per child under 12, plus tax and gratuity. Children four years and under are free. Limited seats are available, so advance reservations are strongly encouraged. To make a reservation, visit www.opentable.com, www.shorclearwater.com or call 727-373-4780.
On-property Easter Activities
The resort’s youngest guests will have plenty of opportunities to have their own holiday fun, including egg hunts, egg decorating, egg relay races and photos sessions with the Easter Bunny. For only $30, the Easter Bunny will also hand deliver fully stocked Easter baskets to guests’ suites between 7:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
