Mother May I?
Forget brunch, this Mother's Day take your mama, your baby mama or just your totally grown up, independent self to celebrate (or commiserate) with stories, songs and two for one drinks at The Delancey. Whether your mother was a goddess of love and support or a smothering bitch, your inner child will laugh, cry and try not to poop your pants at Mother May I, a night of performances by writers, actors and singers in honor of mothers. There's a woman somewhere who you owe your life to, and we want to thank her. Join us for stories, lullabies and comedy. We won't judge your outfit or your date.
