Don’t Forget That This Sunday is Mother’s Day

Don’t forget to support local businesses this Sunday by buying your mom a gift at one of many fantastic local retailers: Cellar Door Chocolates, Art Eatables, Butchertown Market, Red Tree, Nanz and Kraft, or any of a myriad of others. Also, don’t forget to make your brunch reservation at one of these local restaurants; Mother’s Day is the biggest brunch day of the year, and you don’t want to be stuck waiting for an hour and a half.
 
May 11, all day long
All over town.
Call your mother for goodness sake.
Don’t forget to buy her a nice card.
And some flowers and chocolate too.
