Gift cards, spa, special meals — and chance at free play

The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Seminole Casino Coconut Creek have some nice ideas for Mother’s Day:

Brunch at Council Oak Steaks & Seafood: Council Oak selections include made-to-order omelet, pasta and bananas fosters stations; a carving station with New Zealand lamb and other prime meat selections; a raw bar that includes Alaskan king crab legs, oysters, snow crab claws, shrimp and a chef-attended sushi station; and traditional breakfast favorites such as Belgian waffles, French toast, crab benedict, fresh-baked breads and breakfast pastries, assorted meats and imported cheeses, a variety of crisp salads and fresh fruit. Guests 21 and over receive unlimited, select alcoholic beverages, such as sangria, Bloody Marys and Bellinis.

Council Oak recently revamped its brunch offerings to include exclusive add-on elite upgrades with seasonal stone crabs, caviar and specialty champagnes, such as Veuve Clicquot Rich, a sweet French champagne designed to complement a myriad of garnishes from sweet to spicy.

Brunch is available on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is $69 for adults and $35 for children under 12. Elite brunch upgrades are available at an additional cost. Reservations can be made by calling 800-937-0010 or by visiting opentable.com
