May 9th – May 16th: The Week in the HDSID
Events season is entering it’s second week in the HDSID! Let’s see what the following week has in store for the Historic Down Town area.
It’s Mother’s Day! We should all celebrate our mothers and all mother figures in our lives everyday, it’s nice to have a special day for just them.
The HDSID has so many delicious options for brunch on Mother’s Day! From Frankie (264 Grove Street/201- 333-0170), Skinner’s Loft (146 Newark Avenue/201-915-0600) to Porta (135 Newark Avenue/201-544-5199) and Latham House (299 Marin Blvd/201- 479-8432) We definitely have you covered!
We have THE BEST local florists! No need to head to Google and search for flower shops for your mother, we have you covered:
- Brennan’s Florist https://www.brennansflorist.net
- Bouquets and Baskets https://www.facebook.com/bouquetsnbaskets/
- Casa Mona https://www.facebook.com/Casa-Mona-195231607624357/
Even though mothers usually say “You didn’t have to” when presented with a gift…you shouldn’t show up empty-handed on Mother’s Day. Whether it’s a hand-made card, dessert, a treat or something store-bought, place some thought into what your mother or mother figure would like. Maybe a massage from Knead, a box of chocolates from L’atelier du Chocolat or a selection of cheeses from Van Hook Cheese and Grocery. Maybe a cute top from Mint Market or Tia’s or something vintage from Another Man’s Treasure. How about scheduling an appointment for a nice cut and color to The Hair Room or Studio 17? The Historic Down Town area has so many options AND you would also help a small business! That would make any mother proud…
