So Father’s Day is only a week and a bit away and you haven’t thought of something amazing to do with or for your dad yet? Don’t worry – we’ve got this.
1. The sea-fancying dad
Dad likes looking at boats, dreaming of yachts or just being around things that float? Take him to the Cruising Yacht Club of SA for either breakfast or lunch on Father’s Day. The CYCSA is hosting breakfast from 9-11am and lunch from 12.30pm. A full buffet breakfast or a three course lunch overlooking the marina is a lovely treat for sea-fancying dads. Kids under 11 eat for free. More details here.
2. The sausage-loving dad
The beautiful Glen Ewin Estate in Houghton is hosting a gourmet sausage feast for lunch on Father’s Day where a veritable feast of gourmet sausages (they named this event well!) will be served up as a banquet to your table. There will also be live music, bocce, marshmallow roasting, craft beers and of course, delicious wines. Adults are $40 and kids are $25 – bookings essential. View the menu and book your table here.
3. The British-pop dad
If the Beatles, Sting and Elton John are your Dad’s groove, take him along to Sinclair’s Gully for their ‘Best of British Music’ Father’s Day lunch. There will be giant jenga, vintage quoits, bush bocce, gourmet platters, beer and wine available and the best of Britain’s music sung live between 1pm and 3pm. Head here to book online or make further enquiries.
4. The well groomed dad
Grab your dad the day before Father’s Day and take him to the Boy’s Club Barbershop for a spruce up so he’s looking and feeling as good and as dapper as humanly possible for his special day. The BCB are located in both Glenelg and in Adelaide Arcade in the CBD and operate on a walk-in basis only so no bookings required. Dad can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere, a close shave or sharp haircut and a complimentary beer, coke or coffee. Perfect!
5. The beer and burgers dad
Howard Vineyard are teaming up with the delectable Kitchen & Catering by Sam, the mighty Big Shed Brewing Co and the omnipresent McFuzzlebutt’s Manchen to create their Beer & Burgers on Father’s Day event. Whether your dad is a fried snapper burger with pickled cucumber, capers and lime aioli and a Californicator West Coast IPA fancier, or more of a dry aged beef and bacon burger with chipotle, onion rings, cheddar and iceberg and a refreshing FrankenBROWN American Brown Ale kind of guy, Howard, Sam, Big Shed and Dougal will have him covered. Tickets (which can be purchased here) are a must, but at only $20pp including your first beer and a take-home beer glass, we think that’s a steal!
