Not every mom's idea of fun for Mother's Day is an overpriced brunch at an overcrowded restaurant. For that certain kind of mother, consider MOMentum Place, an entertaining excuse to enjoy dance, music, aerial, circus and other rustic Cirque du Soleil–style arts in Topanga Canyon's pastoral environs. Curated by Lexi Pearl, this 19th edition of MOMentum Place begins with an optional brunch (noon to 1:30 p.m., $30), or bring your own picnic. It's dining al fresco in the gardens before the action moves for the performances in the Old Globe–style theater constructed into the hillside. Casual clothes, walking shoes, sunblock and a cushion for the benches are advised. Perfect for that kind of mom and that certain kind of offspring.
