Mom's The Word

If your mother’s a pill, do your duty with some used mausoleum flowers and a trip to Cracker Barrel.

If your mom’s kickass (like ours), make a res right now for the Haute Holiday Brunch at CANAL. The $39-per smokin’ deal includes a three-course meal by chef Justin Beckett, a fashion show by the Garage Boutique kids’ collective, a rose and some chocolate for mom, and a $25 gift certificate redeemable at the next visit to the slick eatery.
