It’s never too late to do something special for Father’s Day, and it doesn’t always have to be a big commitment either. There are plenty of things to do with dad this week, even if you haven’t planned anything. Just take some of these ideas and pretend as you thought of them.
Sox Vs Yankees Game
Surprisingly, this game isn’t sold out yet, but you can expect that it will soon. What is more classic that going to the ball game with dad, eating some cracker jack, and screaming at the blue? Do yourself a favor and get to the game early; the first 10,000 fans to enter Guaranteed Rate Field get a free golf Polo!
Speaking of Polos, maybe Pops wants to get some use out of his. There are plenty of places to golf in Chicagoland. You can golf along the lakeside at the Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Course, putt your way through famous Chicago landmarks at City Mini Golf, or play the ultimate golf game at TopGolf. There are options for all skill levels.
Shedd Family Festival
This festival is for Fathers and caregivers with Children ages 5-12. Take the kids to the aquarium for a day of hands-on fun and activities. Dads like to touch stingrays, too, they just won’t say it out loud.
There is always plenty of things to do at Navy Pier, like riding the Ferris wheel or taking a brunch cruise. This Saturday you can also catch the Aon Fireworks at 10:15 PM. Go grab some dinner, have some fun, and see those bombs go off!
All dads like barbeque; that’s just a fact of life. Ribfest will last from June 14th to the 16th. Chow down with some of Chicago’s best rib and BBQ restaurants with your old man. You might want to get a ride home; all those ribs and craft beers will make anyone sleepy.
