It’s safe to say that Mother’s Day this year will be a little different than we’re all used to, but you can still treat mom to a great day if you know where to look.
Despite lockdown regulations beginning to ease up, many restaurants are still closed. There are some still offering delivery or pickup orders, however, and these can be great options for showing mom how much you care while staying safe.
