Father's Day is Sunday, June 18, and if there's one thing that every dad likes, it's food. (Yes, beer is a food.) The upcoming holiday is the ideal excuse to skip cooking (and doing dishes), get out of the house and indulge in specials that local spots are rolling out just for the fathers in your life.
Here are the tastiest ways to celebrate Dad in Denver:
