Feeling dull and debating what to do for Father’s Day this year? Here are our Father’s Day ideas that’ll have dad fully entertained, full of scrumptious eats and full of adrenalin this Sunday June 21st.
Brooklyn Bowl: Family Bowl – no cover
Blend your own Father’s Day brew with a mix of live music, great food, bowling and local beers. Brooklyn Bowl is known to put the rum in drum with an eclectic selection of beverages, musical performances and feasts by Blue Ribbon. Yelp reviews have praised the Rock and Roll Fries that made one reviewer feel like they “died and went to heaven” whilst others have rocked and raved about the fried chicken and a guest DJ appearance by Quest Love.
Doors open at 12pm for all ages with no cover until 6pm.
Father’s Day may be about warming dad’s heart, but TriniSoul will ignite dad’s tastebuds. In TriniSoul’s Caribbean kitchen, transport dad to a beachy getaway one dash, sprinkle and stir at a time. Yelp reviews have been mixed with some reviews criticizing customer service whilst others praise their friendliness and cooking that’s even better than their mom’s!
The Father’s Day menu includes ackee and codfish bruschetta, codfish fritters, mojo jerk chicken wings, coconut rice and more.
You’ll have a generous tasting of each dish and leftovers can be taken home! The cooking class is held from 11am to 3pm.
NYCRUNS Fathers’ Day Half Marathon – from $40
Unconditional love for dad isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon – or half marathon!
