For Mother’s Day, they’ll be doing a special showing of Mama Mia on their outdoor screen. While they haven’t announced the full details just yet, if it’s like previous year events, there will also be a special brunch offering.
Another annual favorite, particularly for brunch fanatics, is Jax Fish House.

In the afternoon, they’ll be offering a bottomless crab dinner for those who skip the morning offerings.
Don’t Forget the Card!
Also, if nothing else, don’t forget a card and know that ‘mother’ doesn’t have to mean ‘woman who birthed me’. Whether it was a foster mother or granddad who raised you in both traditional parent roles, celebrating the person who cared for you as a youth is a kind way of showing just how much their efforts meant to you.
