Dad to the Bone – 6 Fresh Father’s Day Ideas

Since The Event Team spends so much time researching new event venues and activities for corporate groups, we’ve managed to inadvertently collect intel on the best holiday hot spots in Southern California. Allow us to drop some knowledge on you, Father’s Day style. Here are some unique ways your Pops can chill out with his children this weekend:

For the master and commander…
Brats &  Beer on the Bay: The Maritime Museum (San Diego) invites you to set sail aboard the Californian on either Saturday or Sunday. The excursion includes a delicious bratwurst sandwich, chips and a cold beer prior to sailing. Hot dogs and soft drinks are available for the kids. Guests are welcome to enjoy the museum before and after the sail.

For the dapper dad…
Father Figure: He’s probably got a million ties, but does he have the perfect suit? Swing by Santa Monica Place (Los Angeles) and treat your dad to a stylish suit that will match some of those man-necklaces he’s been collecting over the years. Professionals are standing by at Barney’s New York, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom and more! For bonus points, stop by The Art of Shaving and take advantage of their cool Father’s Day promotion!

For the spirited craftsman…
Beer & Bourbon Tasting: Brunch isn’t just for Mother’s day or hipsters with hangovers. Partake in the Father’s Day brunch celebration at The Langham Huntingon’s Royce Wood-Fired Steakhouse (Pasadena). This interactive Sunday Market Brunch experience will feature flowing mimosas and Bloody Marys, fresh breakfast pastries and elaborate food displays. Exclusive beer and bourbon tastings will be held in the Red and White Wine Rooms.

For the frequent flyer…
Up, Up, & Away: The Palm Springs Air Museum is offering free admission to fathers with paid child (any age). This venue is home to one of the world’s largest collections of flyable WWII aircraft. Additional exhibits and activities allow visitors of all ages to gain a fresh perspective of World War II — the unparalleled event that shaped the world we live in. If your dad is still feeling the need for speed, tack on a flying lesson or discovery flight at Desert West Aviation.

For the surfer dude…
Nature/Nurture: Bank some outdoor bonding time with dad by booking a private surf lesson from Santa Barbara Adventure Company. If a surfboard isn’t your ideal mode of transportation, you can also opt for activities like hiking, biking, kayaking and more!

For the muscle man…
Oldies With Your Old Man:
Gear up for a day of classic cars at Cruisin’ Brea’s 11th Annual Oldies Car Show & Live Music Festival (Orange County). Each year this event draws well over 10,000 attendees to see approximately 72 categories of classic cars, with 41 participating car clubs represented. Live music, free general admission and parking.

Enjoy your day with dad, kids, and don’t forget to contact The Event Team for more Southern California activity and venue suggestions!
