There are so many things going on this weekend, there's sure to be an event that's right for your mother. There's theater on Friday, Saturday and Sunday; there are variety of hikes being led on Saturday including one into Rochester Hollow in Shandaken, and a moss walk in Blenheim; the much-anticipated Bake-Off at Mama's Boy in Phoenicia; and a square dancing master class in Denver.
And, anyway, if you can't get creative with a present, don't worry. It's a fact: mother's like brunch. Perhaps it's the canteloupe? Whatever the reason, if you're looking for places to treat mom on her special day, we've got a selection of places in our calendar that are serving it up on Sunday, as well as about fifty other entertaining events for moms, dads, kids and pets. -- Andrea Girolamo
