During brunch, guests will enjoy live music provided by the Eric Schneider Jazz Trio.

At the end of the day, three colorings will be drawn and featured in our April e-newsletter, and one lucky grand prize winner will be drawn to receive four complimentary tickets to the hotel's Mother's Day Brunch.
