If you haven't thought about Mother's Day, it's time to get to it. May 14 is closer than you think!
In recent years, I've discovered that it's not about the gift or the pampering. If yesterday's post wasn't an indicator that I am not the spa type, read here. For me, it's about spending the day and having an experience with my family with a side of "me" time. Two hours seems glorious! As a matter of fact, this year when my husband asked me what I'd like to do...it took me awhile to decide. And then I had an epiphany...weather permitting, of course. This year we are heading to the Lincoln Park Conservatory and Zoo to explore completed with a taco picnic from one of my favorite taquerias. Simple? Yes. But simple sounds really good to me given the chaos of work and life. Tacos it is!
I have a special treat for you Chicagoland readers, though. I am partnering with the gorgeous Eddie V's to offer a special prix fixe brunch for 7 guests + (1 winner) making your Mother's Day intimate and colorful. The best part? This ain't your momma's brunch! Think a Jazz Brunch on Sunday, May 14th (between 11 AM and 3 PM) at 521 N Rush Street.
All you have to do is share your story about why you or your mom deserves a special Mother's Day experience. It's that easy -- just leave it in the comment section!
Your guests can choose between appetizers such as thinly-sliced smoked salmon served with capers and pickled red onions or crisp fried green tomatoes served with fresh lump crab. Additionally, guests can then select from a range of delicious offerings for their main course, including lobster quiche, pan-seared steak and eggs, shrimp and grits, or Alaskan King Crab omelet with three citrus hollandaise. Conclude your Mother’s Day celebration on a high note with one of Eddie V’s decadent dessert choices, such as Banana Foster Cake with Butter Pecan Ice Cream or fresh seasonal berries with freshly baked cookies. Brunch will be accompanied by the restaurant’s award-winning wine list of over 300 wine selections, as well as special cocktails such as mimosas, Bellinis and Bloody Mary’s.
The winner will be selected on Thursday, 5/11/17 at which point Eddie V’s will contact the winner to confirm their Mother’s Day Jazz Brunch reservation.
