Father’s Day weekend is upon us and it’s time to celebrate the old man. This year we aren’t having Dad grilling in the backyard for everyone else or him opening up the box to a random tie. It’s 2019 and there are so many other ways to let him know he matters. Pack the car up and take him out to eat at a restaurant he’s never eaten at(which may be a lot). A multitude of places are throwing something special for all the Dads to let them know how much they mean.
