Step away from the tie section, your dad would probably rather eat


Aaaaahh, Father's Day. Yet another Hallmark holiday that marks an opportunity to stress unnecessarily over the correct way to honor the man who, as Groupon puts it, gave birth to you. For some reason, golf, BBQ, and a shit ton of meat seem to be the main options that scream "MANLY!" and "DISTINGUISHED!" for those of us scrambling to make plans this week. We've got you covered on all fronts. Unless your dad is more of an afternoon nap kind of guy, in which case, just leave him alone for a few hours.

Beehive does Dad's Day

1. Beehive does Dad's Day

You better hope your pop ain't a vegetarian if you're planning on hitting up the Beehive today. We're sure they could hook you up with something, but it would be a waste of their killer menu options. We're talking baby back ribs, blackened NY steak frites with peppercorn jus, and a prime rib grilled cheese, people. In true Beehive fashion, there will be live music the whole time, which sounds like a pretty solid Father's Day to us. more

Father's Day BBQ at BOKX 109

2. Father's Day BBQ at BOKX 109

We know, we know, the image of a Dad behind a grill is quite the cliche. Sometimes, though, they want the sweet BBQ-y results without the hassle. This year, BOKX 109 exec chef Jarrod Moiles is rolling out a customizable (Dads love that word, right?) prix fixe menu. First course options include: scallops & bacon, tomato gazpacho, and BBQ beef short rib nachos. For entrees, choose between a NY sirloin or the roasted half chicken. If you aren't stuffed yet, you can choose between a strawberry & basil shortcake panzanella (our personal choice), seven layer chocolate mocha cake, a cake pop trio, or a banana split. Good luck, kids. more

Nine & Dine

Blue on Highland is offering up the standard Father's Day food fare, but with one major caviat: a complimentary round of golf at New England Country Club. Mini-golf was fun when you were younger, but now you should be able to bust out your skills with a nine iron with the big kids. Dine here today, and a gift certificate comes with the check. more

Pain D'Avignon's Bread of the Month Club

4. Pain D'Avignon's Bread of the Month Club

We know what you're thinking: 500 fucking dollars? And the answer is yes, 500 big ones. But why? Listen, this Father's Day, you could very easily pick out a lame printed tie, or get him an ironic apron (Sausage King, or something), but what is the real goal of this Sunday? To express to someone that you love them, despite the lame Dad-jokes he may throw at every server in every restaurant you frequent. And, nothing, absolutely nothing, says I love you like bread. The cacophony of crackle when it's fresh, the smell that makes you want to burrow down in the dough and go to sleep...come on. Here's a way to make sure your Dad gets awesome bread every month! Choose from three month ($150), six month ($275), and twelve month ($500) programs, and that month's selections are shipped to his door. Everyone loves bread. more
