It’s your old dad here. Your mother told me you needed some hints for Father’s Day (not my idea, I swear). So here goes.
We can prevent Mom from taking nips out of my bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label if you get it engraved for me (Federal Wine & Spirits, 29 State Street, Downtown; 617-367-8605). Let’s bond over a scotch-tasting class at the Boston Center for Adult Education (June 13, 7-8:30 p.m., 5 Commonwealth Avenue, Back Bay; 617-267-4430).
I like to eat. And I like helping people. How about we hit up the Operation Frontline dinner at La Morra (June 9, 6 p.m., 48 Boylston St., Brookline; 617-739-0007)? And I’m always game for the clam bake at Turner Fisheries (10 Huntington Avenue, Back Bay; 617-424-7425).
Pack me off in style on our next vacation: The guys at Luggage Forward will ship my golf clubs from the front door to my hotel room. And I could use a bespoke Ted Baker suit while you’re at it (Therapy, 152 Brookline Avenue, Fenway; 617-266-6501).
If nothing else, it’ll get your mom off my back.
Need more ideas for Dad? We’ve got other guides to help with that.
