Last-minute Mother’s Day Lunch Ideas

by Maria Frangieh

Growing up, we learn very quickly that Lebanese mothers are superheroes. They have their unique ways of showing their affection, like preparing you your favorite meal, or making sure you take a jacket with you anywhere you go, no matter the weather. Our mothers deserve the best, and so do yours, which is why we compiled this list of places and events for you to treat your mother this year on Mother’s Day!
