Think about some of the things your Mom really likes—some peace and quiet in the afternoon, dirty socks actually in the laundry hamper and maybe, Heaven forbid, a little “Me” time for herself once a year.
The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa can’t really help out with the socks, but we’ve got the other things Mom loves covered for this Mother’s Day, May 11.
Take for instance one of the most basic Mom wishes—a nice function where everybody (and that probably means you) actually behaves for a couple of hours, keeps their clothes clean and shows some manners.
Yes tea. Moms like to sit down for a minute and have some tea.
The day begins with a one-hour etiquette class instructed by Crystal Bailey from the Etiquette Institute of Washington at The Water Club. Then enjoy a welcome cocktail and a three-course lunch by Borgata Executive Chef Tom Biglan paired with Mighty Leaf teas at 28 West.
The menu includes heirloom tomato soup with basil & smoked gouda grilled cheese, a trio of tea sandwiches—smoked sturgeon, salmon and trout; garden fresh vegetable and roasted chicken and cranberry—and a dessert selection of scones and pastries.
The class and lunch are available at $59 per person.
Another high-end treat for Mom includes a little taste of the bubbly at Vintage wine boutique at The Water Club. This Saturday, May 10, from 4pm to 7pm, Vintage will hold a champagne tasting hosted by Trevor Dunn.
Now that makes for a nice afternoon for Mom (that is if you could just sit still).
It’s the Mother’s Day Giveaway and 50 lucky players will win prizes.
Or, treat mom with a Borgata gift card. Good for hotel accommodations, fine dining, spas, shopping and more! Plus, use offer code MOM to waive convenience fees on e-mail and print-at-home gift card purchases now through May 12.
When you take it all in, Borgata really has Mother’s Day covered.
As for the socks, it helps if you would actually try to hit the hamper. Is that so hard?
