It’s official, every holiday is now fair game for every restaurant, bar, lounge and hotel. Not that is wasn’t in the past but some holidays just seemed to stake a natural claim on the 11am brunch, the 2pm dinner and the 8pm supper. The shift this year has come by way of Father’s Day and I have to say that the dear old Dad specials are giving Easter, Mother’s Day and New Years Eve a run for their holiday place setting. The Father’s Day pitches have been coming in fast and furious, you’d think we were at Marlins Park; which by the way the Miami Marlins are playing the Tampa Bay Rays in Tampa (St. Petersburg) at Tropicana Field on Father’s Day at 1:40pm, (should you want to get away). Just like all the other holidays there are brunch, lunch, dinner and drink specials all over South Florida for Father’s Day; I’ve decided to put together an interesting list of things to do with and for Dad this weekend that includes more than just a multi-course dinner.

Sporting it out of town:

Baseball:
As I mentioned in the above paragraph, the Miami Marlins are playing the Tampa Bay Rays in Tampa (St. Petersburg) at Tropicana Field on Father’s Day at 1:40pm
