Aren’t Dads the Best!
Happy Father’s Day to all the great DADs out there! As kids we all remember who our hero’s were: Superman, Firefighters and of course, our Dads. And to make this day super special, I thought up five (mostly inexpensive) ways to pamper dad on Father’s Day. We know any Dad would enjoy these:
Nothing says “you’re awesome” more than spending a few pointless hours chatting about nothing and casting a line into water to catch… nothing. But hey, if that’s what he’s in to, it could be the best few hours he’s had in a long time and maybe you’ll get the goods on where your inheritance is at.
This is one of the simplest DIY’s I’ve seen in a long time. And it involves cake pan and concrete, which is awesome. Got this from HomeMadeModern. Grab a cake pan, some legs and a pack of concrete. Follow these simple steps and whamo! You’re Al Borland without the flannel.
I’ve discovered this great shop to get my hair done called Denim and Smith. It’s inexpensive, the seats are comfy and they have TV’s right in front of you, which is great for just hanging out and getting a proper cut in the same hour. Plus, isn’t it time Dad had a decent hair-cut? Don’t forget to treat yourself to a tube of Jack Black Turbo Wash on your way out.
Put your expensive Henkel’s knives to good use and carve up a bad-ass roasting stick. For extra sentiment, use a stick you find in your backyard or alley. Or go all out with a slab of solid untreated cedar for that distinct flavour, which you can find at a local hardware shop or supermarket.
Movies these days are way better than they were when your Dad was a kid. Take him to see something in 3D to really blow his mind. I’m recommending Man of Steel 3D (out June 14th) or Star Trek Into Darkness 3D. Load him up on super expensive theatre food and sugar to make it extra special. Dinner before a plus, but not necessary.
For Dads with a sweet tooth, knock his wool socks off with your skills in the kitchen. This 45 minute recipe for OREO Shazam Bars not only looks and tastes great, but has “SHAZAM” in the name! Accompany it with a mean coffee or scotch to complete the effort.
