It's Easter weekend and Milwaukee is celebrating with shows, flowers, food and, of course, beer.

A new production of Les Miserables at the Marcus Center has audiences wonderstruck. Critics say "Les Miz is born again!" The show is at 8 p.m. on Fri, March 30. 

The Spring Floral Show is at the Mitchell Park Domes all weekend, and this year the flowers are Shakespeare-themed. Shakespeare in Love features flower displays from the bard's many plays such as Hamlet and a Midsummer Night's Dream. The event is every day this weekend from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Mobcraft Brewery is getting into the Easter spirit with the Hop Along Can Hunt & Brunch.  Visitors can enjoy an Easter Sunday brunch at the brewery and hunt for cans hidden around the building for a chance to win prices. This event takes place Sun, April 1 from 9:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Speaking of brunch, other Milwaukee options are The Iron Horse , The Explorium Brewpub , Milwaukee Art Museum and The Pfister .

Lastly, an unlikely pairing of yoga and beer seems to be popular this year. The Riverwest Public House , Pabst Brewery and City Lights Brewing Company are all offering yoga with a drink on Sat, March 31.
