On Saturday, the District Wharf is bringing back Chihuahua fun as is customary, but this year looks different. While there won’t be a Running of the Chihuahuas, you can watch Beverly Hills Chihuahua, as well as a costume contest that benefits Rural Dog Rescue. Tickets here.
Make sure you check out our favorites around the neighborhood for Mother’s day brunches and special deals. We really like The Duck and The Peach‘s Mother’s Day Picnic idea and the Tune Inn’s Mother’s Day Brunch. Call up your favorites and book something sweet for mom. But maybe you just want to send the mother figure in your life some chocolate. Even if you missed our giveaway, check out the new Läderach at Union Station and stock up on chocolate!
