For our Old Chicago Inn guests this weekend who are traveling Moms (or are visiting or traveling with one) we have compiled a listing of neighborhood specials and events celebrating Mother’s Day. There is an abundance of deals designed for Mom all weekend, so Mother’s Day in Lakeview will certainly be a special one. Following are some great choices, but be sure to check with your Innkeeper, David, for our full list.
Need a gift for Sunday? Several retailers in the area are offering discounts for Mother’s Day but here’s one perfect for travelers! The adventurous Mom is sure to enjoy Uncle Dan’s at 3551 N Southport Avenue, one of three locations of this Chicagoland retailer of fine adventure and travel gear. From clothing and footwear, to camping tools to travel gadgets, there’s sure to be something to catch the active Mom’s eye. And just mention this post to receive 15% OFF any one single item for MOM! (Now though Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 13th, 15% OFF any one single item).
Want to pamper Mom? Salon Fugu, “an Italian Escape,” at 3853 N. Southport Avenue is offering some great spa packages at nice discounts for Moms. Take Mom for the Bella Mamma Escape which includes a Fuga Signature Facial and 1 hour Therapeutic Massage. This package is priced at $150, a great deal which normally goes for $215! Other packages are available; call 773.880.1280 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
And after her fabulous Italian salon experience, why not take Mom to a great Italian dinner? Fiorentino’s Cucina at 2901 North Ashland is opening early for Mother’s Day. This cozy restaurant features rustic Italian fare and has a wine list from “small but distinguished wineries.” They have a special Mother’s Day menu with offerings such as a Mission Fig & Blue Cheese Salad and Capesante al Porcini e Farro (translation: porcini crusted sea scallop with farro, a wheat type grain, in a white wine sauce with spinach and tomato). Check out the complete Mother’s Day menu on their website: http://fiorentinoscucina.com/mothers-day . Plus every mother gets a $25 gift card to use on her return visit ~ what better reason to come back to Chicago!

We are pleased to offer many add-ons to your stay, including wine or champagne service upon arrival, cheese trays, cookies, balloon bouquets or fresh cut flowers. Our weekday reservation staff, Sarah and myself, Virginia, will be happy to assist with arrangements for any of these items at reasonable prices.
