It's been on odd night of busy work that hasn't felt that busy. I think that's largely because I've been working on just a few jobs that have been monopolizing my time.
Hit a brief period of sleepiness tonight which is odd because I had quite a nice bit of relaxation and sleep yesterday. Perhaps some lack of sleep from the weekend still hanging on.
Ericka's mom, Vern, is in town and doing her characteristic running around that would kill strong men. Today's agenda: quilt shops in the far-out northern suburbs. Vern and her friend Sue plan to get started at 9:00 a.m. and will likely be going until 9:00 p.m., if not later.
I'm looking for a semi-swanky place to take Vern for Mother's Day. My current leaning is toward the Sofitel but I haven't been able to find anything about any deals they're doing for Mom's Day. Suggestions welcome.
Current Mood: busy
What kind of M-Day restaurant are you looking for, and what are you looking to spend?

D'oh! Of course you guys would be a wealth of ideas.
Ericka's mom has indicated an interest in steak and lobster. She's watching her carbs but not to crazy levels. She's mid-Western but semi-adventerous; she doesn't like too spicy and doesn't do garlic but will attempt different meats.
Ericka is the oddest vegetarian I know. She likes raw vegetables and has only recently made forays into stir-fried and steamed vegetables with great reluctance. She does eat pasta and dairy products, however, so anyplace with a good fettucini alfredo will suit her just fine.
Me, I eat nearly anything and am willing to try anything I haven't before.
I think $30-50 a person would be a good amount to spend on a meal (including beverages, tax, tip, etc.).
Appreciate any suggestions.
Honestly, you're probably best at a "normal" nice restaurant, like a hotel restaurant. They're likely to have things that suit both of the picky palates, and you won't be disappointed either.
