A Musical
“Motown The Musical”
Pantages Theatre Hollywood
6233 Hollywood Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90028
(323) 468-1770
www.hollywoodpantages.com

Seeing good theater with your mom is always a memory in the making. For some fine fare on the boards in a house that has lots of eye candy even when nothing is going on on the stage, the opulent Pantages and its mesmerizing Art Deco architecture is a Hollywood great in and of itself. This year, take your mother and/or the rest of the family to see “Motown The Musical”. The Broadway musical tells the true American dream story of Motown founder Berry Gordy’s journey from renowned boxer to one of the music businesses’ hottest moguls. Launching the careers of Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson and other notables, Gordy was a true influencer.

1 Pico Blvd

Nail Treatments
The Mani Pedi Parlor
12619 Washington Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90066

A mani-pedi date with your mom gives you both great looking nails and the chance to catch up on all of the gossip without the rest of the family listening in on your news. Since the mantra at The Mani Pedi Parlor in Culver City is “let us pamper you,” this is obviously the ideal place in which to get your digits in fine form while enjoying the process in close proximity to the women who brought you into the world.
