For the sports nut – Some ladies love taking in a game with their families. If that’s your scene, hit the Bowie Baysox stadium. Play catch prior to the game, then grab some brunch. Choices include the brunch standards such as eggs, bacon, sausage and an assortment of fruits and cheeses. Stay on for the game at 2:05. Tickets are $39 for adults, $25 for children 6 to 12 and $10 for children 3 to 5 years old. Children under 2 are free.

For the gal who doesn’t mind getting a babysitter – Mother’s Day is about celebrating the fact that you are a mom. And that means sometimes, it is ok to hire a babysitter and indulge a bit. Ram’s Head Roadhouse has a great brunch spread and bottomless Bloody Marys. So don’t be shy about having the babysitter tag along. Each mom will receive a complimentary mimosa and Bloody Mary’s are $10 with the purchase of an entrée.

For the mom who just really loves brunch – As women, we sometimes tend to be indecisive. And that’s ok, it just means we like to have lots of options. Osprey Point Restaurant is the place to go if you want choices. Brunch is from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and tickets are $35 per person and $15 for children under 12.

For the seafood enthusiast – Obviously, this area is known for its seafood choices. And if your mom happens to love her briny foods, bring her to Carrol’s Creek. They’ll have plenty of seafood, including a raw bar filled with oysters, clams and shrimp, for the eating. Adults are $29.95 per person and children under 9 are $14.95.

For the adventurous eater – There are always women who enjoy trying new things and new foods. For that lady, try Pusser’s Caribbean Grille. They’ll have the standard brunch favorites, of course. But they also add in the new and exciting twists, such as Chesapeake seafood pie and pork chops jardinière. Adults are $28.95 per person, children under 10 are $12.95 per person.

For the mom who loves having lots of options – Azure in the Annapolis Westin is one of the prime dining spots in the city. On Mother’s Day, they are offering up tons of options for the special lady to choose from. Lack of flavorful options will not be an issue. Adults are $40 per person, children ten and under are $15 per person.

For the mom who likes it rich – Fado Irish Pub is the place to be for the mom in your life who likes their food rich and filling. This year, they are serving up a Chesapeake crab omelet, lamb hash and chocolate chip pancake stacks. Prices are based on menu items ordered.

For the woman who can’t get enough crabs – Being a Marylander means having a really healthy love for all things crab. Buddy’s Crabs and Ribs is where to be for the woman who wants to eat crabs on Mother’s Day. They’ll have crab claws, crab dip and crab soup on hand along with other traditional brunch options. Adults are $22.95 per person, children are half price. Kids under 5 eat free.
