Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and grandmoms, and may your breakfast in bed include bottomless coffee and minimal burnt toast. We've got a lot of fun activities on our calendar for this Mother's Day weekend in Chicago: Music loving moms can enjoy a Beatles cover band in Wrigleyville, country in Berwyn, or retro rock in Lombard.  Nature mothers can learn about animal moms in Glen Ellyn or take a wildflower walk in Northbrook or Lemont. Or celebrate Derby Day in Elk Grove Village or Free Comic Book Day at your favorite comic book shop in the city and suburbs.
