Dove Men+Care said it all (without saying much!) in their newest ad, prompting viewers to pick up their phones and give Dad a call. So now that your heart’s a little melted after watching that video, how are you going to make your dad feel special this Father’s Day? After all, it’s only a few days away, so you better make your plans quickly! Here are some ideas to help you get started in arranging a day that’s fit for a king!
All dads love fishing—that means they love water, too, right? Living on Long Island, it’s probably a safe assumption that your dad wouldn’t mind a day out at the marina, which is why we suggest you head over to the Bridge Marina in Bayville! Rent a kayak and soak up some summer rays out on the Sound!
The Belmont Park Family Fun Days turn their backyard into your backyard, providing hours of entertainment for people of all ages. There are all sorts of activities and games for the whole family to play, face painters, karaoke, bouncy inflatables, a petting zoo, pony rides, and more! June 15th is the second of three Family Fun Days for the season, so don’t miss out!
Treat Dad to a nice brunch at Thyme in Roslyn. They’re offering a special holiday menu on Sunday from 10-2:30p, which includes a complimentary cocktail or juice, fresh-baked scones and sweet rolls, an entrée, and coffee/tea, all for $29pp! Make your reservations by calling them at (516) 625-2566. You can view their entire menu on their website (link above).
Featuring the Cold Spring Harbor Band
If brunch is a bit too early, and you want to let Dad sleep in, why not aim for the BBQ in the Biergarten at Plattduetsche Park instead? From 1-5p they’ll be partying outside in true German fashion, with a wide selection of beer on tap and authentic German specialties served hot and fresh. There will be a Jager Spice promotion going on from 2-4p, and starting at 1p, the Cold Spring Harbor Band, a wildly popular Billy Joel tribute band, will be playing everyone’s favorites to keep the party going strong.
