There’s still time to book a reservation to show the mothers and mother figures in your life how much you appreciate them with mimosas and waffles (or even a drag show), but don’t wait too much longer.
Mother’s Day is coming up faster than you think (May starts next week, people), but if you didn’t make plans yet, there are still good options available.
Make sure to contact the places listed below — all require tickets and may sell out soon.
