It can be a challenge deciding what to do for your dad on Father's Day. If the traditional backyard barbecue doesn't hold any appeal, here's a sixpack of alternatives, everything from cooking classes to live music to good grooming products.
1) Tunes on the Terrace
Lone Tree Arts Center
10075 Commons Street, Lone Tree
At 8 p.m. Saturday, June 20, you can treat dad to soulful music — a blend of blues, R&B, rock and roll, and maybe even reggae — and a free drink at the Lone Tree Arts Center. Dan Treanor’s Afrosippi Band featuring Erica Brown will perform on the outdoor stage during Tunes on the Terrace. You'll receive a complimentary drink coupon for each ticket purchased online using the code Dad2015; tickets range from $22 to $30 and can be purchased here.
