No amount of poorly landed “dad-jokes” could take away an ounce of our love for all the hard working fathers in the Dayton-area.
Here is a list of various things going on around the Miami Valley you can do with Pop that is sure to get a smile out of him before the day is over.
WHERE TO EAT: Special meals
It’s a scientific fact that all dads must eat at some point and there’s no shortage of options with your father in mind this weekend.
25 E. Central Ave., Miamisburg
June 17, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Enjoy some great food and music and then top the day off with tasty bourbon flights and a nice cigar on the patio. Menu and details coming soon.
6550 Hamilton Lebanon Road, Monroe
June 17, 11 a.m.- 10 p.m.
The Barrel House Brunch features “hand-crafted” selections and not to mention, Death Bloody Marys. You can also play arcade games for free and take a tour of the brewery afterwards. Call the brewery for more details. There will be featured cocktails for Father’s Day, and as always, happy hour from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Reservations are recommended.
600 E. Second St., Dayton
Take advantage of 2nd Street Market’s recently expanded hours on Dad’s special day by treating him to great local food or food from around the world.
BEER, BOURBON & BRUNCH
2800 Presidential Drive, Fairborn, OH 45324
12 p.m. & 2 p.m. seatings, Sunday, June 17
This Father’s Day, the “stylish” Holiday Inn Dayton in Fairborn that regularly hosts sold-out holiday brunches is finally giving dads their day in the sun. Chef White will be hosting the inaugural “Beer, Bourbon & Brunch” featuring bourbon-infused foods and drinks, local craft beer, live music and baseball. Reds and Dragons tickets will also be raffled off all day long. These brunches typically sell out, so we advise you make reservations immediately.

WHERE TO GO
Go share a laugh
101 Pine St., Dayton
Father’s Day this year at Wiley’s lands on their popular open mic night. For only $5, you and dad can laugh and bond over the fact that no one else is as funny as the two of you. The lineup is going to be set soon, so if you’d like to possibly perform on the 17th, visit wileyscomedy.com immediately to sign up.
Go fishing with Dad
Sometimes the old-fashioned ideas are the best. Casting some lines in one of the many scenic waterways Dayton has to offer is a great way to get real quality time with Pops. We’ve compiled a list of some of the expert fisher’s favorite spots in the area, as well as advice for the perfect Dayton picnic.
