Celebrate your Mom in DUMBO

As they say, April showers bring May flowers, and with that, Mother's Day! There’s no better place to celebrate a special day with your mom than in our magical neighborhood between the bridges. Here are a few ideas about how to celebrate Mother’s Day in DUMBO:

Have a bite or a drink together!

Enjoy a Mother's Day brunch celebration at AlmarSUGARCANE raw bar & grill, westville or Superfine (bonus: Superfine's is a Bluegrass Brunch with live music!) If your mom likes to sleep in, make it lunch or dinner at the sidewalks tables outside Atrium, in the garden of Gran Electrica or at Cecconi's with views of the river. Looking for more of a party vibe? Head to Randoph Beer for beer flights and fries.

Pick up something sweet!

Smile to GoOne Girl Cookies and burrow have special cookies and treats available for the occasion. If Mom's a chocoholic, stop by Jacques Torres or Almondine.

Find something special!

Browse vintage finds and enjoy tasty treats at The Brooklyn Flea on your mom’s special day. The market is open on Sunday May 12, 10am - 5pm.

Or stop by the Mother's Day Market a Fluevog on May 11th & 12th, 12pm-5pm, to shop leather goods by Lolafalk, hand made soaps by igivesoap, floral arrangements by Andrew Wardlaw and treats from Jillicious Foods.

Take a step back in time!

Visit the classic Jane's Carousel and take a group picture for mom to remember the special day dedicated to her. The Carousel will be open from 11am – 6pm for the occasion.

Be Pampered!

Mom like to be pampered? Send her to Greenstone Spa for an hour away, and she'll receive a complimentary flower on her way out. Or,  send mom to Dumbo Salon for a Blow dry +Treatment + Gloss for a neighborhood price of $65 (valid May 10-12!)

Don't forget the flowers!

Stop by La Catrina Flowers and pick up the perfect blooms for your mom.

...or the perfect gift!

Find a unique token of your love for your mom at one of the many businesses in DUMBO. From clothing at Front General Store and Scotch and Soda, to special jewelry at Emerald Gem Exchange and Thea Grant, to lovely accessories from Glam Expressway (50% off select items all week!) and Feed, to an interesting book from Powerhouse Arena, you can be sure to find something your mom will love.
