Father’s Day Deals falls this Sunday, June 19, at 9 a.m. This handy guide will help you find the perfect gift for dads in your area if you are looking for last-minute gifts.
Take him out for a beer
Take your dad to a local brewery and honor a timeless tradition. To let your dad know that you care, send him a six pack if he isn’t nearby.
These local spots are worth a look: Threes Brewing (113 Franklin St.), has a fantastic selection that Dad will enjoy. Greenpoint Beer and Ale Co. (1150 Manhattan Ave.), has a great rooftop. Other (34 River St.), has a great location with delicious options.
You can get your dad something unique from Duke’s Liquor Box (114 Franklin Street), if he prefers Scotch.
Dads who can’t travel to the mountains should send their son to Vital (221 N 14th St.). It has its own climbing wall, right here in Brooklyn. You can either give your dad a one-day pass to try it, or you can get a punch pass for five or ten days if you feel generous.
You can let Dad relax by having him axe-throw at Bury the Hatchet (25 Noble Street). This activity is very popular. It takes about an hour to complete and, if he likes it, he can join a league team.
You can take Dad bowling if you are a good bowler or not. He’ll enjoy spending time at Brooklyn Bowl (61 Wythe Ave.), or The Gutter(200 N. 14th St.), both two great bowling alleys in North Brooklyn.
A vinyl record from Academy Records Annex (85 Oak St.) will be appreciated by the dad who loves music and talks about the “good times”.
Most dads would benefit from updating their wardrobe. You can help him with a new style from Alter (1140 Franklin Street) and ID Menswear (6 Bedford Avenue).
Yoseka (63 West St.), has an amazing selection of notebooks, pens and other supplies that Dad can use to take notes during his tenth Zoom Call.
Take Him Out to Dinner
Who doesn’t love steak, dad? Amber Steakhouse (119 Nassau Ave) is a great place to treat your dad to a special dinner. It claims to be Greenpoint’s first and only steakhouse, and offers a wide selection of wine and bourbons to complete the experience.
St. Anselm (355 Metropolitan Ave.), is known for its great steaks and great atmosphere. This restaurant is next to Spuyten Duyvil’s Joe Carroll and would make a great place to have a nice meal and end the night with an Amaro.
It’s always possible to splurge on a classic. Peter Luger (178 Boulevard) is a well-known steakhouse that has been serving the best steaks in the city for many years. This will make Dad’s Father’s Day even more special.
