Mother's Day

Looking for suggestions on things to do for Mother's Day in the area. I'm new to this area so I would love to know what people typically do to celebrate Mother's Day here. I will be celebrating with my mother and sister and would be interested in a nice place for brunch and or a show of some type or anything else that might be nice. Unfortunately, brunch at the Botanical Gardens is sold out. Thanks for your help.

You might want to check the Weekend Section in Thursday’s Times Dispatch. Most hotels/restaurants that are having special Mother’s Day events usually will advertise in that section. Since you live in Chester, one place you might want to try is the Halfway House. It’s on Route 1 approximately two miles north of Route 10. The food might not be the most spectacular, but the ambience, service and history of the building make up for it. Another suggestion would be the brunch at the Jefferson Hotel, although I suspect it is already sold out.

Thanks for your input. Yes, the Jefferson is sold out but we are on the waiting list. Will look into the Halfway House.

CuppaTea, a new tea house in the Fan, is holding a Mother's Day tea. I think that there are 2 seatings, at 12 noon and at 2:30 p.m. Also, there is a house tour in the Museum District which is located just west of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the Virginia Historical Society.
