Father’s Day provides families with a great opportunity to show Dad how much you care for him and how you sincerely appreciate his hard work and all that he has done for you over the years.
There’s an old adage that states “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach,” and it’s certainly true when you take him to a nice restaurant for a Father’s Day brunch. Denver has become one of truly great restaurants cities in the country, and the choices are as numerous as they are varied, but now’s the time to make reservations.
Restaurants that are offering a Father’s Day brunch this year include BD’s Mongolian Grill, Block & Larder, and the Central Bistro and Bar. Others include Cranelli’s Italian Restaurant, The Exchange Tavern, Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse, and the Greenbriar Inn. Additional noteworthy restaurants include Il Fornaio in the Denver Tech Center, Maggiano’s at the Denver Pavilions, Sixth & Pine and Sushi Hai in Highlands Ranch.
By visiting www.opentable.com, you can find numerous restaurants that Dad is going to love, such as Panzano, The Kitchen, and Seasons 52. If Dad loves beef, Shanahan’s Steakhouse is among the best in metro Denver. If he likes fish, try McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurant.
Denver is blessed with some of the finest concert venues in the country, including the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre. If Dad is a music lover, check out the June schedule for this beautiful outdoor concert venue.
If you take your father to a concert, it doesn’t necessarily have to be on Father’s Day. June concerts at Red Rocks includes Steely Dan with Steve Winwood, The Colorado Symphony Orchestra with DeVotchKa, and Bob Dylan (on Father’s Day).
At Fiddler’s Green you can enjoy The Cure, Boston, and Jason Aldean, and at the Paramount, attractions include Pat Benatar, Gordon Lightfoot, and Ringo Starr and His All Star Band. For a full lineup of Denver concerts, simply do a Google and all attractions are at your fingertips.
It’s a little odd that some of metro Denver’s finest attractions are frequented by tourists more than by residents, but it’s true. So why not take Dad to one of our great places to enjoy the scenery, food, shopping, wildlife, and more.
When was the last time Dad visited Red Rocks Park, the newly renovated Union Station, the Denver Zoo, and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. How about taking a stroll on the 16th Street Mall, touring the State Capitol, or having a picnic in Washington Park. And what could be better than taking Dad to a baseball game at Coors Field? And for something truly different, take Dad to iFly Denver in Lone Tree for an exciting indoor skydiving experience (if he is up to the task).
Doing something fun on Father’s Day is a great way for families and friends to reconnect, and it’s even more fun if it’s something new or different.
