This Mother’s Day, beloved moms everywhere will wake up to breakfasts in bed, homemade cards with adorably ghastly handwriting and phone calls from children who don’t live close. And let’s not forget the frantic and apologetic calls some will receive from scatterbrained kids the next day.
In addition to all that, they’ll be offered free services simply for falling into the right category (mom) at the right time (Mother’s Day).
Here are few such places in intown Atlanta:
• All moms shoot for free this Saturday and Sunday at Stoddard’s Range and Guns. A "Mom Plus One" promotion is also offered, whereby moms who sign up for a private session can choose a guest to join her for free. The in-store purchase must be made between Friday and Sunday, and the session must be redeemed by June 15. Stoddard’s has two locations: West Midtown, 485 Bishop St., and Douglasville, 5840 Bankhead Highway.
• In addition to free admission on Sunday, the College Football Hall of Fame, 250 Marietta St. NW, will offer each mama a complimentary massage, manicure and mimosa.
• Moms will bypass the normal $26 gate fee at Zoo Atlanta on Sunday with the purchase of any regularly-priced child or adult general admission ticket, or if accompanied by a Zoo Atlanta member (that’s up to two mothers per membership).
