Hoboken’s own Cantigas Women’s Choir presents its twelfth annual spring concert titled WITH SONGS IN THEIR SATCHELS: Celebrating Those Who Brought Music to New Lands on Saturday, May 10, at 7:30 p.m. at All Saints Episcopal Church in Hoboken, N.J. The suggested donation for the concert is $15 ($5 for seniors and students).

The choir is conducted by renown conductor Leonardo San Juan. What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day weekend than with an international night of music featuring pieces from Argentina, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, Finland, France, India, Iran, Ireland, Japan, Lebanon, New Zealand, Poland, Spain, Taiwan, Venezuela, and more?

8) Run for the Jubilee Center on Mother’s Day in the HOHA Classic! (Pier A Park)

If you have an active mom, take her running on Mother’s Day! Applications are available at Fleet Feet (604 Washington Street) and Hoboken Golf (125 Grand Street).

9) Take her to a vineyard on Long Island!

Croteaux Vineyards in Long Island is the perfect getaway for the weekend!

I went to Croteaux Vineyards a few months ago, and I absolutely loved it. If you have a mom who needs to get away from the hustle and bustle, vineyards are the perfect getaway trip! Very fun, relaxing, and a trip to remember.

10) Treat her to some yummy, gluten-free and vegan Hoboken Girl chocolate peanut butter squares

Introduce her to a new obsession!

You can get them at these Hoboken locations, and there’s also an opportunity to win prizes from those businesses! They’re delicious; you’ll be addicted from the start!

11) Take her to brunch or dinner in Hoboken:

Perfect for BYOB and bonding with mom over delish Italian!

 Otto Strada (743 Park Ave, Hoboken) is open for brunch and dinner on Mother’s Day. They’re offering a special pre-fixe menu of $32/person and it’s the perfect opportunity to pamper mom with amazing food. Also, they serve kale chips at the beginning of your meal, which is pretty awesome. There are so many Hoboken options, it’s hard to choose — but this one is HG approved.

Happy Mother’s Day!
