Take your father to a BBQ brunch with “Bloody Man-ly’s” (complete with grilled shrimp, candied bacon, grilled cheese, fried pickles, hot links, olives, onion rings, and more) and “Man-mosas”. Enjoy the Pork Belly with Grits or Smoked Brisket Hash while spending time with your old man.
If you want to fill your dad with beer and beef, look no further than the Bohemian House for lunch. The menu has a variety of hearty dishes including the Skirt Steak and Eggs, Smoked Trout Toast, and the Boho Burger.
Spend the day at the Bitter Pops brewery and learn how to brew one of the best IPA’s around. The Northeastern- Style IPA was voted one of the best beers to enjoy this summer. Dinner will be catered by El Tapatio and your ticket includes two pints of your choice and a 4 pack of beers.
Head to Lottie’s for an all-you-can-eat BBQ while watching the U.S. Open. Food includes BBQ, burgers, brats, mac n’ cheese, and much more. You might even leave with one of the many raffle prizes.
If you already have brunch plans, spend the day on the lake paddleboarding or kayaking at Kayak Chicago’s Lake Michigan or Chicago River locations. The company offers single and double kayaks, paddle boards and even electric boats if you would like to explore with your dad with the ease of an Electric Craig Cat. You can take a tour or go out on your own with this premier full-service company.
