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.
