Just days away, Mother's Day has the potential of turning restaurant offerings into the kind of overpriced "special menus" that one may see on Valentine's Day or Christmas Eve. Crowds mechanically head out to brunch and buy into the prix fixe deals to please the mom in their lives. Less than ideal, that is not the only way that the weekend celebration can go.
For the sons and daughters who are looking for something different, Eater has selected several experiences that not only get the party fed and also show mom and the rest of the family a good time. Among them, there is a calligraphy class that adds a skill to the list of talents that mom has, two cooking classes that bring the family together, and a weekend-long Flea Market complete with fun food and drinks.
