For those who relish putting things off, there is still plenty of opportunities left. A whole host of St. Louis restaurants are holding places for Mother's Day reservations this Sunday. So make it a lavish brunch or a lunch or dinner. The choice is yours. But do something now on Open Table.com. The best excuse in the world would fall well short of remembering mom on the most important day of the year.

Our choices for celebrating mom include a trip to the zoo, a tea party, helping the library, fun at The Magic House and a concert.

Celebrate Mom with a choice of restaurants and retailers.
Instead of the normal “what’s going on where” this column features Mother’s Day events for you to fete that most important person in your life, she who gave you birth – or maybe not, whatever.
