Mother’s Day brunches hold a very special place in the hearts of kids and mothers alike. This Sunday, make sure your mom’s brunching experience is everything it should be by taking her out of the town, where she can either dine on a little of everything fine at a buffet, or have a multiple-course meal crafted with moms in mind.

Treat Mom to a Downtown outing with a trip to Cardinals Nation Restaurant and Bar. From 10am-2pm on May 10, the upstairs floor, with a pristine view of the ballpark, is taken over by a brunch buffet, complete with a bloody mary bar that almost takes up the entire length of the bar. After she’s dined on her favorites (don’t let her miss the turtle trifle), head over to the Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum to walk off the sleepiness that always sets in after a good brunch. Tickets are $40 for adults and $18 for children (includes Hall of Fame admission). 601 Clark Ave Unit #102, Downtown, 314.345.9854
