Cupcake Fanatic Mom
The Gardiner Cupcake Festival bills itself as a large "old fashioned block party." Not to be missed if your mom has a sweet tooth.
Brunch for Mom
There are great brunch ideas on Hudson Valley Metromix and HV Echo. Oriole 9 in Woodstock is offering a fancy brunch on Mother's Day (How about lobster salad, avocado, arugula and tarragon?). Reservoir Inn is a delicious bet especially if your mom likes seafood and/or Italian food. If you are looking for something more casual and kid friendly, there is Ninety-Nine Restaurant in Kingston. There is something about it that just makes kids behave there. Maybe it is 80s music and the cheery service that always seems to be playing there. They also have a Gluten Free kids menu.
Milbrook Vineyards & Winery Mother's Day Tasting event is sure to relax mom. Here's the info:
