Moms eat free

DontKnow.jpgHere's a novel Mother's Day idea. Don't Know Tavern is serving brunch and dinner on Mother's Day, and moms eat free. That is, of course, if someone else buys a brunch item or entree. I'm assuming it will have to be of equal or lesser value, but I haven't heard back from owner Jason Zink yet about that and my other question: What kind of ID do you have to have?

If any other restaurant owners or PR people read this and want a little publicity for their Mother's Day specials, just post below.

I posted this in "The End of a Thrilling Day" thread, but not sure if anyone saw it. I work with Morton's The Steakhouse and wanted to let you know that both the Baltimore and Annapolis restaurants are still accepting reservations for Mother's Day! They have a special prix fix menu for the day, including a choice of salad, entrée, side dish, and dessert, for $59 per person. They will also be open for special hours that day - 1 - 9 p.m. (normal hours are 5:30 – 11 p.m.). For more information and to make reservations, call 410-547-8255 for Baltimore, 410-280-1170 for Annapolis, or visit

Additionally, Morton's will be offering a one time only, special Mother's Day Champagne Cocktail on Mother's Day. The cocktail has a Wild Hibiscus flower at the bottom of the glass, which blooms as the champagne is poured over it. The flower is edible. The cocktail will cost $16.

For $16, the mother's day champagne cocktail at morton's should have a $10 bill at the bottom of the glass instead of a wild hibiscus flower.

So to take my wife and 3 kids, we're talking about $400 including tax, tip, and just ONE of those $16 cocktails?

Uh, no thanks.

I can grill just as good of a porterhouse or NY Strip on the backyard grill. And not only can I throw some lettuce in a bowl with dressing, but our steak dinner will come with TWO sides and unlimited cocktails for mom, all for less than $75.

Elizabeth, many thanks for the opportunity to tell your audience about
"Make plans to mind your Mother's Day at Loco Hombre." From 10 a.m.-3 p.m., more than 30 items will be featured on the brunch buffet with complimentary Bloody Marys & Mimosas.

The chefs will also be preparing a supper buffet from 4-9 p.m. Selections include the Famous Pimlico Crab Cakes, Old Bay Macaroni & Cheese with Crab, Decadent Pastries &
Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries.

Reservations are being accepted at 410-889-2233. Please note that complimentary parking is available on three adjacent lots.

Ms. Large,

Women don't need to show any ID at Don't Know Tavern, they just need to show up with their special acquaintance to receive a free meal. Don't Know also has all you can drink bloody mary's and mimosas til 1pm for only $5. Happy Mother's Day.


Okay, my mom is back in Wisconsin but I would love to check out the complimentary bloody marys and mimosas at Loco Hombre. Therefore, applications for a substitute mom are now being accepted; the line forms to the left.

Piano Rob, every adult at the table for the Mother's Day Brunch at Loco Hombre is welcome to the Bloody Marys and mimosas. Hope to see you there---ask for General Manager Steve and tell him Mags sent you!
