Ever consider just how many meals mom has cooked and served during her lifetime? If you simply reply “Mom’s cooked a lot” it is likely an understatement. So let mom toss her oven mitts aside on Mother’s Day, May 8.
There are numerous special brunches and dinners at Atlantic City casino hotels from which to choose.
If mom would rather do something other than dining, there is a selection of events and hotel specials being offered for Mother’s Day in Atlantic City. They include:
- Sunday brunch
- Belly laugh at a comedy club
- Spa treatments
Each year, Mother’s Day honors motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence moms have on society.
So those reasons make May 8 – or the entire weekend if you want to take mom to the South Jersey shore – a big day to celebrate.
Atlantic City casino hotels, restaurants and spas, dance floors, and oyster bars, provide mom or a special family member or friend enough fun and relaxation to show exactly how much they are appreciated.
(Just don’t forget the reservations.)
We’ve compiled a list of some of the special Mother’s Day specials and events at the hotels and casinos on May 8.
