Word to your mother

It's Mother's Day weekend, so I'm devoting my picks to keeping it in the family. Just not in the way that Angelina Jolie loves her brother.

Friday, I'll head to SoHo Bar & Grill (5751 Milgen Road, Columbus) to see The Wrights, a country music husband-and-wife team. They've been compared to Johnny Cash and June Carter. The $10 show starts at 10 p.m.

Saturday, meanwhile, will be all about weddings. No, I'm not marrying my third cousin.

I'm actually going to see "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" at the Columbus Museum, 1251 Wynnton Road. The film, devoted to familial chaos, is set in Chicago, where my extended family lives.

The drive-in movie will include refreshments, and you can flaunt your ugly bridesmaid dresses and tuxedos in hopes of winning a prize.

Finally, I'll end the weekend by snagging a last-minute gift for my mom, who lives in California. Web sites like accept orders almost down to the last minute.

Sure, flowers sound kind of cliche, but when coupled with the right three-word card, they're golden.
