So, what to get for dad on Father's Day? And what to do?
Mother's Day seems a bit easier. Get mom a card and some flowers, and cook so she doesn't have to. Done deal. But dad probably isn't as in to cards and flowers, and he'd probably rather grill a steak then have you try to cook (no offense).
Luckily, St. Louis Park is a really cool city, and as such, there are some great gift ideas to be found here, as well as a few fun places to take dad. On that note, a list of both:
Gift and/or outing: Fun With Beer
St. Louis Park is quickly becoming known as a destination for beer (this serves as proof. So does this outstanding ). To capitalize, take your dad over to the up-and-coming Steel Toe Brewing tonight (at 6 or 7) for a brewery tour. Or swing by yourself and get pops a growler of Steel Toe's delicious beer. Want to get him a couple different beers? Build your own six pack at . Want dad to work for his beer? Get him a homebrewing kit from .
is one of the preeminent outdoor sporting goods and apparel stores in the area, so why not swing by and get dad some gear, or a gift card?
Outing: The Movies
But not the boring old movies. The movies with drinks and some dinner, right at your seats. Enter , where this becomes reality. "Prometheus," "Rock of Ages" and "That's My Boy" are a few of this weekend's top picks.
Outing: Family Fun at the Aquatic Park
Sure, Father's Day is about dad, but a great dad knows it's never a bad idea to make the kids happy, too. So get the whole gang together and head to the St. Louis Park Aquatic Park. Water slides, splash pads and much more. Open 11 to 7 on Father's Day.
We mentioned earlier that dad might want to grill on Father's Day. It's in the DNA of many men. To help the old man out, head to and get him a gift pack. Because the way to his heart is indeed through his stomach.
