Nat'l Mom's Nite Out comes to Boca mall May 10
Leslie Glickman doesn’t like to call herself the yoga queen of Boca Raton. But after 20 years she’s so well known, her master class will be center stage at National Mom’s Nite Out at Town Center at Boca Raton on May 10. You can also find her in Sanborn Square on Saturday mornings, a new city perk to help generate foot traffic downtown.
That’s Glickman looking half her age holding court on the floor, as bloggers relax on mats for a preview of “Zen for the Mom” from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Nordstrom wing of the mall. Moms are invited free and without the kids for a breather: meditation, music, massage, a lululemon athletica fashion show, and gentle exercise before the mad rush of Mother’s Day on May 13. [Guess whose picture is in the yoga and running gear store?]
At a California Pizza Kitchen food tasting later, founder Maria Bailey said she was relieved not to have to “hop on a plane” to one of 1,100 National Mom’s Night Outs she started five years ago. “One-hundred and 33 malls are doing this now,” she said. “This started with a tweet that everyone felt like Mother’s Day is so much work. Suddenly, there were 800 events across the country.”
Now her own brand with the large agency BSM Media in Pompano Beach and clients like Walmart, the author and Mom Talk Radio host said she’ll Tweet from the event at the mall in Boca. Bailey’s event web site is http://www.momsniteout.com/ and the mall wants customers to check out www.simon.com/momsnightout.
