Mother's Day 101
In fact, there are a lot of deals for moms on Mother's Day:
Carmen's Café in Troy - a free Momosa
The Big Dipper in Wynantskill - a free regular size soft ice cream cone
Alexis Diner - a complimentary glass of wine
TCBY - free yogurt
Charlie Mac's in Cropseyville - free slice of homemade ice cream pie
Seriously, there are a lot of deals.
And cool offerings too. If your mom loves brunch - and who doesn't like brunch - there are certainly options:
Arlington House in West Sand Lake - Brunch buffet (at 11:30am and 1pm) $34/person
Holiday Inn Wolf Road - Brunch buffet (from10am-2pm) $35/person, $13.50 children (4-12)
Portofino's Italian Ristorante in Latham- Brunch ( 11am-2pm) $29/person (children under 4 free)
And, of course, there's Tulip Festival in Albany - until about 5:30pm.
In case you were wondering, the reason for all the offerings/specials is that Mother's Day is actually the big day in the restaurant business - getting even more business than Valentine's Day.
But what ever the freebie and what ever the reason, I hope you enjoy creating your own Mother's Day traditions with your children and families. Happy Mother's Day.
