You love your mom. She listens to you bitch and moan (which actually makes her an angel), she's always proud of you, she's always helpful and you're up to your ears in unconditional love. That's why mom gets a special day in her honor. Here's our pick of the top five things to do with mom on Mother's Day.
5. Go the traditional route with a Mother's Day brunch. Yeah, we know, it's kind of boring, but good eats are always a safe bet.
Derek's in Manayunk is offering unlimited fresh fruit, bakery items, an egg and omlette station and more breakfast and lunch options. Plus all non-alcoholic drinks are included.
J.L. Sullivan's in the Bellevue wants mom to really enjoy her special day with a prix-fixe brunch that includes unlimited bloody Mary's and mimosas all for $30.
The Art Museum's London Grill is featuring a three-course spring menu from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. for $25 as well as their infamous make-your-own bloody Mary and mimosa bar!
Wanna really show mom how special she is? Head to Pond in Radnor where you can dine among the beautiful gardens and graceful swans. They're offering a decadant brunch and dinner menu and giving every mommy flowers.
4. If mom's an animal lover, then take her to Animal Moms Weekend at the Academy of Natural Science where they're celebrating mommies of all species . With a live animal shows at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and a Mother's Day card making station, it'll be a day she won't soon forget. Plus, it's cheap, tickets are just $8 to $10.
3. Take a cruise on the Spirit of Philadelphia. They're offering a buffet, an interactive DJ (don't know what that means, but it sounds pretty cool), dancing (because dancing with mom is the best) and spectacular views of the city. Choose from the brunch cruise that starts boarding at 9:30 a.m. and docks at noon for $44.90 for adults and $22.45 for kids age three to eleven, the early dinner cruise at 2 p.m. for $51.90 for adults and $25.95 for children or head out on the Delaware for the dinner cruise. Boarding begins at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $60 for adults and $20 for the kiddies.
2. If you haven't yet, you've gotta take your momma to check out Cézanne and Beyond at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The exhibition is winding down (it ends on May 31) and features 40 of Paul Cezanne's paintings, 20 watercolors and drawings. Alongside artists like Picasso and Henri Matisse, you'll be memorized and encompassed by beauty and genius. Tickets range from $14 to $24.
1. And finally, taking the number one spot is the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The annual race raises millions for the breast cancer research and quality care and takes place on Mother's Day. Sign up with Mom today. Not only will you be spending quality time together, you'll be making a difference.
The 5K race begins at 8:15 a.m. with opening ceremonies at 6:30 a.m. beginning at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Hopefully this little guide has given you some ideas on how to make mom feel extra special!
