You know that Mother's Day is this weekend. (You do know that, don't you?) If you're looking for a way to treat Mom nicely, the Trib notes that the Field Museum will stay open an extra hour on Sunday. That's so good sons and daughters can accompany their folks to the hugely popular Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years exhibition. Of course, even if your madre is elsewhere (or is, say, staunchly Republican), you might consider going, as this is the show's last weekend. Some other ways to show your love: Andrew's Mother's Day Tart or maybe some chocolates -- today's Daily Candy has a suggestion.
