Ah, dad.. you get 1 day a year where we are obliged to laugh at your i-swear-i-heard-this-one-last-month-but-its-still-kinda-funny jokes.. and we bet you’re pretty thrilled the day has come. Better soak it up when it arrives because it only comes ’round once a year and there is only so much pre-planned ha-ha your loving children can schedule in.
Lucky for us, your support & understanding is year-round, but every father’s day we never know how to repay you for your unconditional love. Especially since the only request you have is the pleasure of our company (a good gift, we agree) however, what could we possibly get you when we know you deserve the world, but all we can really think of on our own is a carton of beer?
Just like you reading this, we have also left our Father’s Day planning to the last minute! Time just flies by & father’s day has certainly crept up on us. So we did a little hunting and found your best picks for dad this father’s day (he’ll never know you were so busy you forgot!)
Is your dad not much of a physical gift type of person but like to look sleek? DAS Hair are offering a free mismatch beer with every hair-cut for Father’s Day, so your dad can sit and relax with a cold beer while he gets professionally groomed. Give them a buzz on 8232 8539 to book.

Parente Couture Jewellery & Co

FATHER’S DAY MEAL GUIDE
Stag Hotel Adelaide
This year, The Stag are serving up a dad-friendly 3 course menu in their restaurant, with on offer some awesome bar specials, including a ‘Sticky Fingers’ share plate (yum) complete with every American BBQ staple. We’re also told there’s a yet-to-be announced event, so keep your eye on The Stag’s Facebook page for the ultimate day for dad. To book for Father’s Day, give them a call on 8311 0392.
Belgian Beer Cafe
Belgian Beer Cafe this year will be preparing a 2 or 3 course ‘Plats Du Jour’ where every dad gets 1/2 a dozen of oysters and a Stella Artois on the house! Call 8359 3400 to book.
For New Orleans inspired dining with 16 craft beers on-tap and an extensive American and Australian whiskey collection, this is your destination. Their “Feed Me” menu is the prime choice where chef Adam Hudson will send your taste buds on a journey through New Orleans with 7 different dishes at only $39 per head. My own dad would dub me child favourite on the spot if he learnt this is where I was taking him for father’s day. To grab a larger booking, email the NOLA boys at email@example.com
If Greek food is what tickles your dad’s fancy, then you definitely can’t go wrong with heading to Eros Kafe for your Father’s Day feast. We can honestly vouch that this European gem certainly delivers every single time. Be prepared to roll out of here once your meal is over! Give them a buzz on 8227 0677 to book.
