Have a "green" Mother's Day

Are you tight on cash but would like to do something fun with your mom that's also Eco-conscious? I've spent the last two weeks looking for the perfect brunch spot in Albuquerque only to be disappointed by high prices. That's not to say that's it's not worth it to drop $20 to $65 per person and have a swanky brunch but it's just out of range of my pocket book this year. Instead, my family and I are opting for a nice informal picnic lunch at a local park. There are plenty of parks to choose from in the Albuquerque metro area and you can host a five star picnic for mom free of charge! You provide the food of course! There are also a number of events that you  and mom can partake in that are Eco and health conscious. I've listed a few events below you can pick up a copy of the Alibi, Sunday paper or COOP newsletter to see a full listing.

Take your mom to the museum! Albuquerque Museum of Art and History is hosting a new exhibit called A New Light on Tiffany: Clara Driscoll and the Tiffany Girls. Call 505-243-7255 for more information and directions.

Mother's Day Concert at the Zoo featuring performance by Riders in the Sky. From 2:00 to 3:00pm call 505-764-6200 for more information.
