You did it again: Mother's Day is Sunday and you still haven't gotten her anything. There's precious little time left, so you need to get in gear.

This week's "Best of Patch Readers' Choice" contest looks to Sunday, May 13, when mom expects to be taken somewhere nice for brunch.
JP Patch is doing a series of week-long "Best Of Patch Readers' Choice" contests. This week's category is: Best Mother's Day Brunch. Here's how it works. Vote in the poll below.

The official rules are attached to this post as a PDF. And now, the nominees, along with links to their Patch …
