3 ways you can treat mom to a great time this Mother’s Day

Give mom a ‘purely Detroit’ experience

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and a common way to celebrate is to get her a card and perhaps flowers.

Vince Passalacqua, owner of Mario’s Restaurant, shared three ways to go beyond the typical gift with something extra special.

1. Take mom to brunch.

Due to the busy dinner rush of Mother’s Day, Passalacqua suggests taking your mom to brunch. A midday meal paired with a mimosa could be the perfect start to her special day. He said starting a family tradition is a great idea to celebrate Mother’s Day.

2. Take her to a dinner and show.

Another option could be taking her to dinner and a show, specifically a Broadway show at Detroit’s Majestic Fisher Theatre.

Mario’s offers dinner packages, where they will buy her tickets, provide transportation to and from the show, and serve mom a delicious Italian dinner all in one magical evening.

3. Cook dinner at home.

Nothing can be more special than making your mother dinner yourself, and Passalacqua gave a family recipe for chicken picante you can make at home. The smell is sure to fill the house with a great aroma.
