Where to Eat in Baltimore for Mother’s Day

With April now just a memory – it passed by in a flash, didn’t it? – it’s now time to buckle down and think about Mother’s Day, which sneaks up on us early this year on Sunday, May 8.

Fortunately, restaurants all over Baltimore are hosting special Mother’s Day brunches and dinners, so even if you’ve left plans for mom until this very last minute, you’re covered. Here’s a look at some of what’s happening around town for the holiday:

Seven Things My Mother Taught Me

Just in time for Mother’s Day, University of Baltimore MFA student Roxanne V. Young remembers her mom’s sage advice on black pride, self-confidence, and still more.

  1. I’m Black and I’m Proud (James Brown)

My mother was the consummate teacher in the classroom and in life.

It was a frigid January afternoon, but I was enjoying the warmth of rare one-on-one time with my mother. We both had skipped school that day to celebrate my 10th birthday. On January 18, 1965 we sat down at the lunch counter at a Baltimore Woolworth’s. It was my first time dining out with my mother. While we waited for the waitress, she took a few minutes to discreetly give me a quick lesson on proper table etiquette.

Mother’s Day Tea at Mount Clare Museum House

catch of the day fish (2)Yes, it’s time to start thinking about Mother’s Day plans. Sure, it’s still a few weeks away, but don’t let the holiday sneak up and catch you unawares with nary a brunch reservation in sight. If your same old spots are feeling a little worn out this year, maybe it’s time to take Mother’s Day back even further than your own family traditions. In fact, maybe you should take it all the way back to 1760, when the Mount Clare House was built. This gorgeous example of colonial architecture was the state’s first museum house, and they host a delightful array of events for families and curious history-oriented visitors each month. And for Mother’s Day this year, they’ll be hosting an afternoon tea fit for a queen (or mom).

The Gift: Glass Flower Workshop from Corradetti

0

The gift

What It Is:

A mini-workshop where each participant creates their own 8-12″ glass flower. The master glassblowers at Corradetti Studio will show you how to stretch & pull 2,000 degree glass, and create your own unique piece of handmade glass art. Each participant will spend about 15 minutes working with the glass, so it’s short and sweet. Workshop offered Sunday, May 3rd at Corradetti Glassblow Studio.  Advanced registration required. $42.

It’s Perfect For:

Mother’s Day: We’re not saying you should send mom to play in a furnace full of molten glass (though, if she’s into that, maybe you should). But the beautiful glass flower that you’ll make in this mini-workshop is a great, unique gift you can give for Mother’s Day– and as long as you don’t drop it, it’ll last much longer than roses.

Crafters: Most crafters get into making stuff because they love the challenge of making things with their hands. They love to see the process of turning raw materials into a thing of beauty. But blowing glass requires a lot of setup. Unless you’ve got all the right stuff ( and how many of us have a 2,000 degree furnace just sitting around?) glass blowing just isn’t something you can dip a toe into. But with a small one-day workshop like this, the crafter in your life can get to try their hand at this old school art form.

catch of the day fish (2)Take a glance around this morning’s social media and it’s nothing but odes to Mom, family photos, and images from yesterday’s Mother’s Day rituals. Breakfasts in bed, fancy brunches, picnics in the park, and family games of tennis. But today you get the chance to turn those genuine moments of family bonding into something more—something you can share with the rest of the family, or simply keep for yourself. McCormick World of Flavors is holding a contest for the best Mother’s Day meal photos. If you think yours can beat the rest, send one on over.

Mother’s Day at Kali’s Court

catch of the day fish (2)Whether mom is a Baltimore native, or just visiting for the weekend, the odds are good that some quality seafood will put a smile on her face this Sunday. After all, if mom is a true Marylander, then a love for seafood is in her (and your) blood. And if she’s just stopping by, she’s likely to want some local delicacies. What’s a visit to Baltimore without the fresh seafood, right? So for Mother’s Day, plan a brunch (or lunch, or dinner) that can’t disappoint. Kali’s Court consistently serves up some of the freshest, most elegant seafood around, and with a reputation for class and atmosphere even the pickiest mom (or mom-in-law) is sure to be impressed.
