Show Dad Some Love With A Fathers Day On The Town. Then Leave Him Alone. He’s Tired, Dammit.

He’s been there through thick & thin. Gruff and grumpy but full of scruffy love. Complaining about your electricity/hot water/gas usage, scowling at your boyfriends/girlfriends, and generally being the loveable curmudgeon who’s there when times are tough. He doesn’t want another tie; he doesn’t want Aqua Velva; what he wants is a good meal, a stout drink, and some appreciation. Is that too much to ask?

Jump for a list of places to take him to show that you get it…

Mi Piaci Italian Restaurant
In honor of Fathers Day, every dad who dines with us will receive a complimentary bottle of wine or a fine cigar. We will also be offering some incredible specials in addition to our regular dinner menu that will be sure to impress him, such as: 14 oz Prime Veal Chop, balsamic roasted pearl onions, and heirloom carrots, with gorgonzola polenta ans cognac demi for $48.
And there’s more.
If Dad brings in a picture of his kids, whether it’s in his wallet or on his phone, he will also receive a lottery ticket. Good luck, Dad!
