Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching, and Mermosa Wines is hosting a one-stop shop for presents this weekend.

The cocktail brand is teaming up with the St. Pete Pier to host its inaugural Bubbles & Brunch Fest on April 9 complete with unlimited samples of bubbly, a fashion show, tasty brunch bites, live music and access to the Mother’s Day village—a section stacked with local artisans and vendors.

There’s only a few $55 general admission tickets left, but you and four friends can opt for the VIP upgrade that  includes a luxury waterfront picnic from Instapicnic in addition to Saturday’s party, which runs from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

For more information on all ticketing tiers, visit According to the Facebook event page, over 2,000 folks are expected to attend this weekend’s Bubbles & Brunch Fest, so it might be a good idea to snag your tickets now.

Live entertainment will be provided by Tampa-born R&B singer J'Nelle,  as well as Best of the Bay-winning DJ Sandman and DJ  Lady Shay, who will go head-to-head in a 90's throwback spin-off, as the festival website states.

A portion of ticket sales will benefit the event’s nonprofit partner, EmpowHERment, an organization that empowers women by fostering the skills and resources needed to obtain self-sufficiency in finances, mental/emotional wellness, and in the cultivation of relationships.

St. Pete Pier’s website suggests that guests wear yacht and/or garden party chic attire to this weekend’s party—which we think is kind of like "Sunday's Best" with a spring twist.
