Northern Michigan Restaurants: What do you do for the woman who cuts the crust off your PB&Js, who magically makes clean, spring-fresh clothes appear in your dresser? Let's face it. Moms are saints. And if the day wasn't nationally dubbed Mother's Day, they'd be hard at work doing what they do best—everything. But lucky for us, if we don't always thank Mom like we should, May 12 is a full day of opportunity. From the grocery store to the dishes, don't let her do a thing. This Mother's Day, take Mom to brunch.
