Attention all mothers! Don't forget to treat yo' self Sunday May 14. It's your special day of recognition for all the hard work that you do. You deserve some special treatment, so here's a list of amazing events, discounts, and freebies to splurge on!
Food & Event Discounts:
- The Zimmer Children's Museum - OK, the Zimmer really gets it: Mom gets free admission, and she doesn't need to then reach into her bag to pay for everyone else! The whole family gets free admission in order to celebrate moms right.
- Medieval Times - If Mom really wants to be treated like a queen, take her to see some jousting and feed her some turkey legs; Medieval Times in Buena Park will treat her to all of the above. Use the code MOM17 when purchasing another full-price adult ticket for any show May 8-14, 2017.
- Hansel & Gretel Bluegrass - Follow the breadcrumbs to 24th Street Theatre for mom's gift; use code MOM to get a free Mother's Day ticket to see the show.
- Angel Stadium - If Mom thinks baseball is blooming awesome, the Angels are adding a Mother's Day flower vase to the arrangement. The first 20,000 adults in attendance score one at the Angels-Tigers game.
- Frappuccino Happy Hour - Starbucks seems to know what it's doing, planning its annual half-price frappuccino event for Mother's Day week every year. The 2017 event is 3 to 6pm May 5-14. Ah, sweet caffeine.
- TCBY - Mmmm...The Country's Best Yogurt participating locations have a free cup of fro-yo for the Country's Best Mom—every one of them.
- Wienerschnitzel - You're a mom? Prove it! The hot dog chain is giving away a free chili dog, small fries, and small soda to all who can show their mom-bership, such as bringing in the kids, showing off a family photo (or photos, plural, in most moms' cases), or telling the story about that time the kid needed rescuing after climbing the you-know-what near the you-know-where.
- Restaurants offering a free glass of bubbly on Mother's Day include The Palm and Shibumi in DTLA, Esterel in Beverly Hills, and Hamptons 818 in Sherman Oaks. Plus...
- McCormick and Schmick's - Mamas get free chocolate-covered strawberries. Someone understands.
- True Food Kitchen - Wrap your mom in love: she gets a gift with her brunch (locations in El Segundo, Pasadena, and Santa Monica).
- The Melting Pot - There's nothing cheesy about this: all moms who enjoy the special prix fixé menu at the Irvine location on the special day get a take-home gift.
- Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - At both locations (Downtown Los Angeles and Beverly Hills), moms dining on Mother's Day get a return engagement, with a complimentary dining card for their next visit; restrictions apply, and dinner pricing is all day.
- Grand Cafe at the Omni Los Angeles - This made us royally happy and then royally sad: Grand Cafe gives a free tiara to every "queen for a day mom" at its brunch buffet, but alas, it's were totally booked last we checked on Open Table. Maybe keep checking? And get another frap while you're waiting...
