We're going to do this week's Reader's Choice a little like Ike and Tina Turner used to perform Proud Mary: We'll start nice and easy, and we'll end nice and rough.
"Rough" because this week's topic is your favorite place to go for Mother's Day brunch. And there are so many great places to eat in the Tri-Cities, making a selection is never, ever easy.
Mother's Day is May 13 this year, so we'll start collecting your nominations today (Monday, April 30), present the nominations in a poll on Wednesday and complete the Reader's Choice voting on Friday.
The deadline for making a nomination is noon Tuesday, May 1.
To make a nomination, name your favorite place for Mother's Day brunch in the comments field below. We'll offer a few suggestions (below), and we'll ask our Tri-Cities' chambers of commerce to make suggestions, as well.
Here are a few to choose from, but remember, if you don't see your favorite here, tell us in the comments field. If you DO see your favorite, you still need to say so in the comments field.
