Many have their own Mothers Day rituals including favorite restaurants in the region. Here are a few "different" events worth checking out this year as well.
Tropical Mothers Day Tea
This Mothers Day, Scarborough Haven in Emory is celebrating with a tropical Brazilian meal – afternoon tea style — from 2-33:30 p.m. Saturday, May 12. The food is not like the spicy Latin American food but, instead, Brazilian recipes reflect their European heritage combined with a tropical flair. The festive and colorful meal includes Guarana spritzers, steak, rice/beans, tropical fruits, and more. The cost is $25 per person. Scarborough Haven is located at 2769 County Road 3160 in Emory. Reservations are required as seating is limited. Go to www.scarbroughhaven.com to register or call 214.883.5075.
Mothers Day Brunch & Show
The Tyler Civic Theatre is presenting a Mothers Day Brunch at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, May 13 that includes a showing of "The Odd Couple," with a twist — it’s a female revision by Neil Simon of the original. It’s based on the same story line and same lead characters, now called Florence Ungar and Olive Madison. The poker game is now Trivial Pursuit with their girlfriends Mickey, Sylvie, Vera, and Renee. Tickets are $30-$34 and available on www.tylercivictheatre.org. The event takes place at Braithewaite Theatre, 400 Rose Park Drive in Tyler.
