Public Service Announcement: Dads are the best! And it’s Father’s Day on Sunday!
If you, like me, have gotten caught up in all of the summer/FIFA/patio fun recently, it may have accidentally slipped your mind to pick up a present for your pop. Luckily I have a few connections and I can help you #Finditdowntown for dad, just in time for Father’s Day!
If your dad likes steak: The Keg (115 Garry St.) would be a great option. Take him for dinner – they’re offering a steak & shrimp combo for $35, they take reservations and they’re open at 3PM.
If your dad likes beer: Get him on a Tap In beer tour! Put on by the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ, there’s a bunch throughout the summer – and it’s great value: 4 restaurants, 4 beers, 4 samples of appetizers all for $30 – and you get to check out a few great new watering holes in the downtown! Next tour: June 25.
If your dad likes cigars: Take a peek around Thomas Hinds Tobacconists – 185 Carlton St. – if you don’t know what you’re looking for, the friendly staff will certainly give you a hand.
If your dad likes a fine scotch: Remember there’s a Liquor Mart inside cityplace – perfect for a grab-and-go gift.
If your dad likes coffee: At Fools & Horses Coffee Co. – Broadway at Edmonton St. they carry Pilot Coffee beans and the accessories he’ll need to brew the perfect cup.
If your dad likes a good tie or pocket square: Try EPH Apparel – 291 Garry St. – they’ll hook him up with a custom tailored suit to go with it!
Other ideas? Let me know what you find downtown for dad!
