WINE & DINE HER
Sometimes being a mom means that you don’t get a whole lot of adult time to yourself, with your friends, or even your spouse. So sitting back, unwinding and having a glass of wine over a very tasty meal certainly helps to collect yourself and have a little ‘you’ time. Dining at Santana Row (sans kids) is definitely one of my favorite things to do on my ‘mommy breaks’. Left Bank is known for its exquisite, french cuisine and I tell you, starting off with their popular cheese fondue is the best! The Village Bistro offers a california cuisine and a couple of favorites are the Phyllo Baked Brie and their Dungeness Crab Tostada. You seriously can’t go wrong with taking the special mom in your life or your mom friends to these two restaurants.
Last but not least, if you find yourself wanting give her the choice to treat herself, purchasing the Santana Row Gift Card is it! For more information on any of the stores listed above, please visit www.santanarow.com
