Father’s Day events and things to do with your dad
Wind your way through four floors of rock star memorabilia, film clips and interactive exhibits (belt your heart out in a fake recording studio!) at this 30,000-square-foot museum on the L.A. Live campus, which attempts to cover all the major music genres. A state-of-the-art, 200-seat Clive Davis theater is also the site of exclusive performances and events. Dads visit for free on Father’s Day.
Your dad’s time is precious, so why shouldn’t he enjoy a shave, haircut and a stiff drink at the same time? Treat him to all three at Blind Barber in Culver City or Highland Park. Call ahead to book the man-scaping, and don’t miss the grilled cheese sandwiches on the menu.
If your Dad initiated your allowance way-back-when and taught you to be careful with your cash, show him how much you’ve learned by planning a day full of the best free things to do in L.A. From music and museums to events and attractions, you won’t run out of things to do, or cash. But might we suggest a steak dinner after the day’s free-for-all?
