It's good to have a Mother's Day dining backup plan -- well, because that breakfast in bed from the kids is really sweet but ... AND, you know hubs forgot to make a Mother's Day brunch reservation. Again. So after you're done explaining ... again ... "Yes, honey, Mother's Day is like the busiest dining out day of the year next to Valentine's Day," you might want to have your own plan. After your long, uninterrupted nap and full body massage, of course.

With some picks from our friends at Coupon Sherpa and some finds of our own, here's a roundup of 11 eateries that are giving FREE food and drinks away on Mother's Day weekend. Can't beat that! Many of these finds are totally FREE for Mom, but some do require some sort of minimal purchase to get the freebie. In all cases, however, they're GREAT deals! Check 'em out.
