Treat Dad to a Memorable Father's Day

Posted on May 16, 2015

Get dad a card. Always get dad a card. Then step it up a notch and surprise him this year with something more. Give the gift of memories. We have five ideas to show dad it’s all about him this Father’s Day, Sunday, June 21, 2015.

1. Cruise
Treat the world’s #1 dad to Chicago’s #1 tour. Sit back and relax during 90 fascinating minutes with theChicago Architecture Foundation River Cruise aboard Chicago’s First Lady Cruises. With a cold brew in one hand and his favorite children on the other, what more could he ask for?

2. Canoe
Treat dad to a rare opportunity to canoe the lakes of the Chicago Botanic Garden. Herons, ducks, small fish, and maybe even a few turtles and frogs will greet you as we explore their watery habitat. Participants must be at least 5 years old.

3. Wine & Dine
A hog roast in the city…need we say more? At the Whiskey, Wine and Swine Pig Roast and Tasting, Dad will enjoy tastings of over 50 wines and whiskeys along with delicious pig roast fare. Give him the VIP treatment with early admission. Like a particular whiskey or wine? Binny’s will be onsite to take orders. And the bonus is it all takes place on a beach.

4. Music
For the dad passionate about music, wine and culinary arts, bring him for all three at City Winery. On Sunday, June 21, savor culinary and wine pairings as you sit back to music from the Bill Frisell Trio at 8pm. A guitarist, composter and bandleader, Bill Frisell is a visionary in American music, mixing rock and country with jazz and blues.

5. Racing
Father’s day at Arlington International has become a Chicagoland tradition. Enjoy a fun day at the races with live music, racing and family activities designed with Dad in mind. Bring your own picnic or sign up for an All-Inclusive food package.
