For the Mom Who Loves Brunch
Flowers are nice, but if we’re being honest, brunch is so much better. Treat mom to Allgauer’s award-winning Champagne Brunch featuring more than 100 decadent items ranging from unlimited champagne and mimosas to a never-ending dessert buffet. Tuscany in Wheeling is serving up a delicious brunch buffet complete with nine drool-worthy stations. The Glen Club is also offering a mouthwatering selection featuring made-to-order omelets and carved prime rib. Or cozy up near the fireplace at Hearth. This Evanston spot is serving up three yummy courses (complete with a waffle sundae!). For a full list of Mother’s Day brunches, click here.
For the Mom Who Loves Tea
Celebrate early with Tea School on May 6 at The Spice and Tea Exchange of Evanston. You’ll learn how to brew loose leaf teas a variety of ways, a gift mom will be able to use at home whenever she needs a cup of tea. If you prefer your tea with scones and mini sandwiches, head to Peckish Pig on May 13 a traditional afternoon tea. Pinkies up!
