Putting Mom First On the Busiest Restaurant Day of the Year

Unless your mom or other significant ladies in your life work in the restaurant industry, this Sunday should be a day of pampering and relaxation for the family matriarch. Be prepared for a lot of company as Mother’s day is the busiest day of the year in the industry, according to the National restaurant Association.
Saving as you splurge on Mom this Sunday doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive. Here is a list of local and national places that are offering some deals that I think mom would approve (well, maybe not the Hooters offer):
