Brunch it with your Mom (psst, it’s this weekend)

Yes, I can make “brunch” a tasty action verb if I want to. Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 12, 2019. (A date BTW denounced by its own creator, Anna Jarvis, as a result of its commercialization.) As much as I agree with Anna, I still love Mother’s Day. See, all us moms really want is time with our kids, especially after they move out and never call. Might as well go out for brunch with me, err, I mean your mother.
