Things to do this Father’s Day

From wine workshops to a inflatable obstacle course (plus unique gift ideas)

Last updated: Tuesday, 12 June 2022

Father’s Day: The day on which we show our dads just how grateful we are for their odd jokes and big hearts. Let him be a kid again at an inflatable obstacle course, or exploring a magical forest with a coffee. And don’t forget the decadent feasts at a brewery or steakhouse (some come with a free beer). Plus, some cool gift ideas this Father’s Day. 

MAKE YOUR DAD FEEL EXTRA COOL AT A BREWERY

This urban brewery is offering not one, but two epic Father’s Day menus. Take your pick between the Cool Daddy or Big Daddy, with special items like thick cut bacon, their famous burgers or schnitzels, bitterballen, 500g dry-aged steak and malva pudding. And each menu comes with a complimentary craft beer (330ml for Cool Daddy). If you go for the Big Daddy option, you get a special gift (hint, it’s one of their small batch brews)

Date: Sunday, 18 June; Monday to Saturday, 11am - 10pm; Sundays, 11am - 6pm
Cost: R250 for Cool Daddy menu, R450 for Big Daddy menu
