Traditionally, the place to find moms on Mother’s Day was at a restaurant table. In years past, the second Sunday in May was the busiest all year for dining establishments, and the two days of the holiday weekend represented their No. 1 and No. 2 most profitable days.
This year, like last year, will be different. Even as dining rooms reopen around the country, most people won’t celebrate the holiday as they once did, for reasons that range from safety concerns to capacity restrictions to our growing attachment to Zoom events. (Just kidding on that last one.)
