There are just some things that Dads do best -- from setting up the PlayStation, pep talks before the big game, barbecues, learning how to ride a bike, and all-things car related. This June 20th, celebrate your special bond with Dad, or the Father Figure in your life, and show him how much you appreciate all that he does. 

Here’s a shortlist of some great Father’s Day events in Fort Lauderdale (or you could just use this list for inspiration):

Make sure to order before the 16th to receive your hearty kit of four 8-oz filets, baked potatoes, classic tomato bruschetta, lemon pound cake, a lux cabernet sauvignon, and more.
  • June 19: For Dads who love a live music concert, this performance of rock-n-roll harmonies by the Atlantic City Boys is a must-see.
