Mother’s Day is this Sunday which means lots of flowers, cards and affection for moms in Los Angeles! Here are our suggestions for Angelenos looking to celebrate their mothers and mother-figures. Check out the L.A. Weeknder below for some fun ideas this Mother’s Day Weekend:
Pomona Art Walk: Browse for a unique Mother’s Day gift and support the growing Pomona art community at the Pomona Art Walk. Hundreds of local artists display their works along the streets and in more than two dozen galleries in the city. Elements include paintings, photography, ceramics and jewelry. Many shops, studios and restaurants are open late as part of the festivities. Visit the Art Walk on Saturday from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
NBA / NHL Playoffs: If your mom happens to be an NBA or NHL fan, this is your weekend. The Clippers face off against the OKC Thunder tonight in Game 3 of the playoffs at the Staples Center. Saturday the Los Angeles Kings play against the Anaheim Ducks in Game 4 at the Honda Center in Anaheim. If you’re lucky, you have tickets to either of these games, but when it comes to the playoffs, sports bars are the next best thing. Of course we recommend Finish Line Sports Grill and taking advantage of our mega-TVs, relaxed atmosphere, daily specials and happy hour prices.
Science Discovery Day: The Alf Museum of Paleontology is hosting a special science discovery day this Saturday. Spend some quality time with the family and check out the learning stations, touch tables and crafts activities. Only $3 per person. Children 4 and under are free. For more information click here.
