It’s no surprise that the team over at Madre love mothers – the name means ‘mother’ in Spanish. Head to this mouthwatering Mexican and madres eat for free when you book a table for Sunday 22 March. T&Cs apply.

Leather Satchel Company has a rainbow of beautiful leather goodies and we always find it hard to pick a favourite. But we’re especially keen on this bull ring bag in English mustard right now. A modern take on a classic design, it was designed and created using traditional British handcrafting leather techniques right here in the Dock-based workshop. A secure long flap and spacious interior make it an excellent daily choice.

Looking for something to do after lunch? Tate Liverpool’s exhibition of the moment features Theaster Gates – the first major UK exhibition of American artist. His work interweaves issues of race, territory and inequality in the United States through sculpture, installation, film and dance. His musical collective, The Black Monks, provide the score for a new film, with their blues and gospel-inspired sound heard throughout the exhibition.
