Whether you want to be a better child or just get out of trouble, taking your mom to the Mother's Day Brunch at Capital Grille (4740 Jefferson) Sunday, is a good start. The Plaza restaurant is offering brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a buffet that includes lobster eggs Benedict, oysters on the half shell, Kona coffee-encrusted tenderloin, chocolate-dipped strawberries and made-to-order omelets. It costs $46 per person ($18 for children and free for those under 6 years old). You can make a reservation by calling 816-531-8345.

If you're worried that you might not have a lot to say, the Jazz Brunch at the Majestic (931 Broadway) is the way to go. Bram Wijnands and sax legend Hal Melia play live Jazz to accompany the historic downtown restaurant's Sunday brunch from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dig into a frittata, croque madame or crabcake Benedict. Make a reservation at 816-221-1888.

Can you smell what downtown Overland Park is cooking? From 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, the Culinary Center of Kansas City (7920 Santa Fe Dr., in Overland Park) will be luring in hundreds of people by the nose. Its third annual Festival of Smoke is a free series of barbecue and smoking demonstrations and pork butt tastings (watch the school's barbecue instructors engage in some good-natured ribbing and competition). Barbecue, of course, is also available for purchase.

Everyone could use a bit of elegance in their life. Bluestem (900 Westport Road) delivers with its Saturday-afternoon tea with seatings at 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Sip on tea and enjoy delicate pastries and tea sandwiches from pastry chef Megan Garrelts. The tea costs $25 per person ($10 for children under 10 years old). Make a reservation at 816-561-1101.

County Keepsakes (501 Main, in Belton) also has a Saturday-afternoon tea. The Belton tearoom will have seatings at 1 and 3 p.m., when tea-party attendees can nibble on sweet and savory items like cakes, cookies and mini sandwiches. The afternoon tea is $15 per person. Reservations are required. Call 816-348-7888.

You didn't take a limo in high school, so you might as well not start now. Bike Prom, BikeWalkKC's take on drinks and dancing is Saturday at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $15 in advance or $20 at the door, and they include food from Wilma's Real Good Food and New Belgium beers.
