If Mom gets a day, it’s only fair Dad get one too. While we don’t make as big a fuss about Father’s Day as we do Mother’s Day, the third Sunday in June (write this down, kids) should be a moment to pause and celebrate the special dudes in our lives. If he’s anything like the Dads we know, he won’t want gifts and will grunt back when you ask him where he’d like to go. Ignore him. Below is a roundup of deals, events and things to do on Father’s Day in Miami that your nonresponsive, present-averse Dads will appreciate.
Whiskey tasting Zuma Miami
The Father’s Day edition of Zuma’s epic Sunday brunch features a Suntory Whisky tasting. You can load your plate up with sushi while Dad samples a Japanese bowmore 12 single malt.
All the meat at Pinch Kitchen
It’s no secret Dads like steak, and Pinch is adding extra meat to its brunch menu to oblige. Specials include a 24-hour braised short rib and a chori-pan, a Cuban-bread sandwich stuffed with Argentinian chorizo.
Sunday brunch at Tap 42 might be too rowdy for Dad, but take him for lunch or dinner and he’ll get free 42 Truths beer on the house.
Burgers at the Butcher Shop
Is your Dad a carb-loving fool? He’ll be pumped to know the Butcher Shop is bringing back its special spaetzle burger just for guys like him this Father’s Day. The hearty sandwich is filled with the German-style mac and cheese that’s been cooked in bacon fat before crowning a delicious beef patty.
If Dad likes to cook, take him for an early celebration on Saturday for grilling masterclass led by Francis Mallmann’s talented apprentice, Cristian Menendez. If he’s more of a spectator, opt for Sunday’s buffet brunch where Dads receive a complimentary hand-rolled cigar.
Book a flying experience for Dad during Father’s Day weekend and get a $25 gift card to use toward a future reservation, like next year’s encore flight.
Cars and Cigars at the Barnacle
The waterfront park in Coconut Grove puts on a big, family-friendly event for Dads who love classic cars. In addition to the showcase, there’s going to be a biergarten, a cigar-rolling station, crafts for the kids and live music. Admission is just $2.
Superhero Father’s Day at CityPlace Doral
It wouldn’t be a stretch to call some Dads heroes. If yours goes above and beyond, and doesn’t mind a little cosplay, take him to CityPlace Doral. Kids enjoy balloon artists, face painting and arts and crafts while the adults get to drink around the mall.
Mondrian South Beach
Dad might be footing the bill for his special brunch, but the Mondrian is throwing in a complimentary Maker’s Mark bourbon cocktail and a 10-minute back massage for his efforts.
Quinto La Huella
Grilled meats, pasta, booze—brunch here is most certainly Dad-approved. On Father’s Day, Quinto sweetens the deal for pops with complimentary unlimited beer.
Malibu Farm Miami Beach
Dad will love the view at this beachfront restaurant. If he doesn’t, he’ll appreciate the Father’s Day tap takeover, featuring four pours of Biscayne Brewing Company beer paired with tasty appetizers. Dads can also enjoy $5 draft beers all weekend long.
Caja China Father’s Day at Ball & Chain
The Little Havana bar throws a big pig roast for Dads, featuring discounted Jim Beam cocktails and music from 2 to 5pm.
Doc B’s Fresh Kitchen
For healthy eats and cheap beer, head to the Coral Gables restaurant, where featuring discounted brews from 4 to 6pm on Father’s Day.
If Dad’s treating, make a reservation at this Buena Vista spot, where all Dads receive a free beer with their meal on Father’s Day.
Pisco y Nazca
Maximize your quality time with Dad by making him complete a puzzle with you. Solve it and the table receives either a free tres leches cheesecake or suspiro dessert for your trouble.
If Dad is sick of his Dad Bod, book him a session at this Sunset Harbour gym, where classes run continuously throughout the day.
KINGS Dining & Entertainment
Dads can bowl or drink a few beers while kids customize and paint their own pin at the Doral bowling alley.
