Father’s Day ideas
Yes I know, it doesn’t seem fair. We had an entire Mother’s Day Guide. But it’s a fact of life: people just don’t go all out on Father’s Day like they do for Mother’s Day. Maybe it’s because, oh I dunno, while fathers are great, they didn’t CARRY an entire PERSON inside of their BODIES […]
Yes I know, it doesn’t seem fair. We had an entire Mother’s Day Guide. But it’s a fact of life: people just don’t go all out on Father’s Day like they do for Mother’s Day. Maybe it’s because, oh I dunno, while fathers are great, they didn’t CARRY an entire PERSON inside of their BODIES for almost a YEAR.
But aside from that, the baby-daddies do deserve a little love this Sunday. If you’re looking for something to do with the old man, here are a couple ideas to get you started…
- Father’s Day brunch: Bank (1005 E. Main Street, 804-648-3070) is serving between 11am to 3pm, Millie’s (2603 E. Main Street, 804-643-5512) from 9am to 3pm, and the Wyndham Virginia Crossings Hotel and Conference Center (1000 Virginia Center Parkway, 804-727-1480) from 11am to 3pm for all you West Enders.
- Get some fresh air: Try Father’s Day in the Garden at Lewis Ginter (1800 Lakeside Avenue, regular admission) from 1pm to 4pm.
- Celebrate with the Founding Fathers: For a change of pace from the typical activity, take your pops over to St. John’s Church (2401 E. Broad Street, 804-648-5015) to watch a reenactment of Patrick Henry’s speech at 1pm.
But of course, if none of these work for you, just go with the old standbys: beer, burgers, and more beer.

THIS IS TOTAL BS!
I better get the shit pampered out of me or we are having words.
As soon as you have an entire person (one that weighs over 10lbs, specifically) surgically removed from one of your internal organs after enduring over 20 hours of unproductive, unmedicated back labor, you will get pampered.
I can never bring myself to buy a second propane tank for the grill. This would be a good fathers day gift for me.
We are going to go see Star Trek @ Movieland for Father’s Day.
