How to have a weird Mother’s Day

            Don’t give Mom a candle this year or bring her to the old boring brunch spot. Make this year’s Mother’s Day weird! We can show you how.
            For instance, give mom the perfect gift for the upcoming football season. The Stadium Sippin’ Seat allows mom to enjoy her bourbon and coke at the LSU games without having to leave her seat! Talk about the perfect gift! The Sippin’ Seat even holds more alcohol than a traditional flask — "up to three cups of liquid" — and comes in your favorite team colors (we only found a sample of the seat in red but don't you think we endorse the University of Alabama!). You can view the handy video on how to use the Sippin' Seat here.
        The site offers some other wonderful alcohol hiders. We were particularly enamored with the binoculars flask which allows for two different types of alcohol so you can mix drinks at the game.
            We’re biased at Weird South (guess where we live?) but if you must pull for another SEC team, how about the Georgia Bulldogs or the Auburn High Heel Shoe Bottle Holder from www.Fanatics.com? You can get any SEC team, plus a number of NFL brands as well, allowing Mom to show her true team spirit while knocking back a bottle of wine. 
            Or if Mom wants to see the Saints play in style (OK, we're in Louisiana!), then how about a pair of Cuce Crusader High Heel Booties. Just make sure you hold Mom's elbow going up and down those Superdome stairs after she's enjoyed her Sippin' Seat concoctions.
            Speaking of sports, the Stadium bar and restaurant at L’Auberge Casino in Baton Rouge is hosting a Mother’s Day Special where moms can create their own Bloody Marys at the Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar. Items include boudin balls, chipotle meat straws, crawfish and crab claws, among many other items — even some that don’t reflect Louisiana crazy. Moms can add as many ingredients/toppings that will fit into one 16-ounce Bloody Mary drink. Hot damn!
            Don't worry, we're not all about alcohol and football. For the Southern religious mom, there’s Chocolate Jesus, artisanal dark chocolates (of course!) that’s enshrined in an archival box, sealed with a limited edition wrapper and topped with a satin ribbon, all for $35. But that’s not the best part. Each box contains a handwritten note by Chocolate Jesus himself, so Mom gets blessed as well.
