Don't Have Your Easter Bonnet Ready? Well, Hop To It!

March 24, 2017

Men, women, straight, gay and everything in between are welcome to enter Casa Cupula's Fourth Annual Easter Bonnet contest at Taste Restaurant. Judging starts at 1:00 pm with great prizes in each category.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Do you have your Easter bonnet ready? If not, you'd better HOP TO IT! Casa Cupula's Easter Bonnet Party and Brunch is becoming an annual tradition in Puerto Vallarta, and the fourth edition is scheduled to take place at Taste Restaurant on Sunday, April 16 from 10 am to 4 pm.

To celebrate the occasion, Taste Restaurant @ Casa Cupula will be serving up a Special Easter Sunday Brunch that features all you can eat goodies plus 1 Mimosa or 1 Bloody Mary for only $399 pesos. Come wearing a bonnet and enjoy a $100 pesos discount!

This year's Easter Bonnet Brunch will be a fundraiser for SETAC, the LGBT community center of Puerto Vallarta. Bringing the tools of education and prevention of HIV directly to residents and visitors is the purpose of SETAC, and this event will raise funds for a cause that is important to the community: prevention of HIV/AIDS through the distribution of the PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) pill.

To help SETAC bring this powerful HIV prevention tool to the greater Banderas Bay area, a $100 peso donation will be requested at the door, and Casa Cupula owner Don Pickens will donate half of all proceeds from the 2017 Easter Bonnet Brunch to this very worthy cause. If you cannot attend the brunch, please visit to donate today.

PV's infamous 'Dueling Drag Divas,' Emmy Award Winner Chi Chi Rones and NY Times Acclaimed Impressionist, Jo Anna, will emcee this year's festivities, which includes an Easter Bonnet contest with $5,000 pesos in cash and prizes to be awarded to the winners of the following categories:

Most original
Most fabulous
Best theme

There will be fabulous prizes for the winner of each category. Of course, one might choose to compete in all three categories, most fabulous, most original and best theme with just one hat.

Some say that size matters, but a good theme can easily win the hearts and minds of Bonnet lovers. For example, one can stick with a traditional Bunny theme. Other Easter themes might include eggs, or chicks, or even a religious theme.

A simple floral Bonnet is always in style, and easy to prepare. Just get fresh flowers, a lovely hat, and a glue gun and you're set to go. And nothing can help cure that Semana Santa hangover like the smell of fresh flowers on Easter afternoon.

Contest registration closes at 12 pm and judging starts at 1 pm.

Men, women, straight, gay and everything in between are welcome, so get on it! Make your bonnets, and come out to Taste Restaurant @ Casa Cupula for an unforgettable Easter celebration!
