Looking to give the old man a little love? Make sure all your time is father time.
Pop o’ the Morning
Get him pumped for the day with a workout at Logan Circle BodySmith, which just opened its outdoor training space for sled pulling and other IronManing. Or send him to Glover Park to climb Jacobs Ladder and get a post-workout massage in the new spa facilities.
Bob the Builder
Let the man work with his hands at The Woodworkers Club in Rockville, where classes range from basic tool sharpening to seven-part cabinet-making workshops. The club provides all the materials, leaving him free to whittle the day away.
Afternoon Candy Man
Mom may actively hoard and crave chocolate, but don’t neglect the other parent’s sweet tooth. Bean-to-bar Rogue Chocolatier, newly available at Biagio Chocolate, makes just three flavors, and we love Rio Caribe best. Don’t tell him the company is run by a twentyish entrepreneur (he’ll envy his dad); do tell him beans are sourced from around the world (he won’t care).
Local designer Aplomb has new magic wallets that you can get at Dekka. Check the details: sleek leather, red or black print, and a secret back compartment to keep funds safe from annoying alms seekers (read: you).
Gather up to twelve loved ones for a Poste Roast: Poste Moderne Brasserie will spit roast your choice of animal (anything from salmon to goat) from a local farm and pair it with sides from the resto garden. Alternatively, gather the family at Planet Wine’s new Farm Table for a seasonal, custom multicourse meal with wine pairings.
There’s not a second to lose.
