Toast mom with cocktails from the Bloody Mary bar at Dantanna’s

Public service announcement: Mother’s Day is rounding the corner—May 14, to be exact. If you have forgotten this, or are aware of the date but haven’t made any plans yet, there’s still time. Fortunately, the Buckhead area is chockablock with events dedicated to our leading ladies, so you can ensure she feels special. Here, we’ve pulled together a smattering of locales featuring Mother’s Day events where the beverage is central. This round’s on us, Mom. Cheers to you!

Indulge in Mexican fare at Red Pepper Taqueria and snag bottomless mimosas for $15 extra

Maya Steaks & Seafood and Red Pepper Taqueria

Toast mom with non-stop OJ and bubbly during the bottomless mimosa special offered at both Maya Steaks & Seafood and Red Pepper Taqueria. The two restaurants share the same owner (and the same sweet $15 price tag for this cocktail special), but offer varying takes on tasty Mother’s Day fare. For steakhouse dining with a Spanish spin, opt for a table at Maya. A more casual experience calls for queso, crispy tortilla strips and al pastor tacos at Red Pepper. If mom changes her mind about drinking, both restaurants will give her a complimentary dessert instead.

Dantanna’s

Between 12 and 4 p.m., moms eat for free on Mother’s Day at Dantanna’s locations in Sandy Springs and Buckhead, when they are accompanied by a paying diner (that means you, reader). Brunch fare encompasses a range of typical mid-morning staples in addition to more luxurious dining, like the Shirred Eggs in Tulips (eggs baked in crepes with Maine lobster, shrimp and crawfish). While you’re there, scoop up a couple of Bloody Marys complete with all the fixin’s from the Bloody Mary bar.
