The Perfect Way To Spend Mother’s Day in Chicago

We all love of our mothers and want them to know how much we appreciate them. But planning a fun day can be hard, especially when you’re unfamiliar with the city. We’ve mapped out an entire schedule of activities so you can ensure your mom enjoys the perfect Mother’s Day in Chicago.

Breakfast and Brunch at The Kitchen

The Kitchen has many sweets available for brunch, including blueberry-oat streusel coffee cake and bourbon pecan sticky buns. For smaller meals, they have gulf shrimp hushpuppies and smoked salmon. If you are in the mood to try their breakfast menu, you can’t go wrong with buttermilk Belgian waffles and poached eggs.

Lyric Opera of Chicago – West Side Story

West Side Story is playing at the Lyric Opera of Chicago both Saturday and Sunday at 1:30pm. After brunch, head over to the Civic Opera House on Wacker Drive to see the age old musical of forbidden love. For a later showing, the musical is also playing at 7:00 PM on Saturday.
