Mother's Day is Sunday. If that realization made your blood pressure rise and your pulse quicken, fear not. There are still ways to pull off a very respectable celebration here in Penn Quarter!
You'll want to get on a restaurant reservation right away. Our number one choice - hearing the Howard University gospel choir at The Hamilton - is sold out, but there are a few options still remaining if you're looking for a table for 4 for brunch on Sunday:
As for presents? There are, of course, a plethora of retail options here in Penn Quarter. May we suggest Mia Gemma for your mama, or maybe Coup de Foudre for your wife?
We also love the idea of donating to a cause for the mother in your life. For example, you can make a flower donation to the National Mall in your mom's name. It's $1 per daffodil or tulip. You could give her your gift over a picnic lunch from Cowgirl Creamery on the mall.
Or what about heading to the Farmers Market today (details on what will be available coming soon!), picking up some ingredients for a homemade brunch, and a donation to some of their nonprofit partners?
Get to it! Your mothers deserve it!
