You know the old man well

Dad saw you through your rebellious phase, athletic years, boozing days, and childhood hot dog obsession. Now return the favor.

Meat and Greet
He’ll take a beer with that. Hit up HD1 for the Red Haute Dog (brisket chili, pimiento Jack, and sweet onion) with any Avery Brewery craft beer ($8). Or chow down on Flip’s rib-eye burger (topped with slow-cooked prime rib, steak sauce, spicy arugula, and horseradish foam; pictured) and wash it down with a draft brew ($14).

Back Nine
He loves to tee up, but get him to lie down for a golfer massage ($165 for 50 minutes), which uses warm golf balls and stretching techniques to work out swing-related stiffness, followed by a refreshing Arnold Palmer and a gift set of Four Seasons golf balls. Now he’s ready to book eighteen holes ($49, cart included, through June 30) at Heritage Golf Links.

Treat your badass dad to a day at Moto Mountain ATV Park, where he can rent a four-wheeler (or bring his own off-roader) to ride more than 75 miles of scenic trails. A barbecue pit, volleyball court, and sweet sky cabins kick the trip into high(er) gear.

Join the Club
Expect a danke schoen after gifting a one-year Stein Club membership to Der Biergarten ($60), which includes a large numbered stein for use at the restaurant, $8 draft beers, VIP invites to events, quarterly beer seminars/tastings, and a one-time 20 percent discount at the fancy Stammtisch table.

the barrel man!Grape Expectations
Your old man is aging like a fine Bordeaux. The Barrel Man’s custom furniture and accessories are made from authentic oak wine barrels and stained to your preference. He’ll savor the clock or bottle holder ($200 each), but the end tables ($350 for one) will really make him blush.

You are your father’s daughter after all.
