Here in the U.S., Mother’s Day (this Sunday, May 13th, 2012) surely ranks as the worst dining-out day of the entire year. Too many small fry in restaurants, too much free (bad) champagne, too many large groups attempting to dine together, and a plethora of negative family dynamics on display: no thanks! I’d rather stay home and cook.
Or, try a completely different take on Mother’s Day this year: take your mama to NOLA Veggie Fest, held May 12 and 13 at the New Orleans Healing Center, 2372 St. Claude. The annual event is presented by the Humane Society of Louisiana.
