Mother’s Day Lunch Options in Geelong – 2019
Mother’s Day 2019 will shortly be upon us! Sunday 12th May to be exact. Have you organised your mum a gift yet? And for those dad’s with little ones, don’t forget to organise something on behalf of the kids for your partner or wife- HINT HINT! Let’s face it- a lot of us are leading crazy , hectic lives and probably haven’t quite gotten around to organising the finer details for Mother’s Day as yet.
A get together with your immediate or extended family over a meal and some beverages is a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day together. If you are like me and freak out at the thought of preparing a meal for a family gathering….. consider the easier option of booking into a venue!
It’s simple…..get dressed, head along to the venue and enjoy the food and company (and maybe a sneaky glass of bubby or a beer or two). No cleaning up, no stress and a happy Mum! There are lots of venues across Geelong offering special menus and events for Mother’s Day in 2019. But if you haven’t booked in yet, you’d better hurry as they usually fill up quickly (as it really is the easy, delicious and no- fuss option!).
To save the hassle of Google searching in a panic, Geelong Living Plus has put together a list of fifteen Geelong venues who are doing something special for Mother’s Day in 2019.
There are also links you can click on to get further info and to make a booking. So sit back…. have a read and then jump online or on the phone to book in….. then RELAX… ITS ALL SORTED!
