He’s super rad, he never makes you sad, he’s loved you since you were a lad, he’s...your dad! Ok, enough with the rhyming. Many dads out there are fantastic teachers, providers, (semi-professional) comedians, and much more. This Father’s Day show your pop some love by taking him out for a meal or gifting him with something useful. There are several local businesses here in the Evansville area that can help you make this Father’s Day a day to remember.

  • Score a hole-in-one with Dad at Walther's Golf & Fun. With mini golf, laser tag, and arcade games, this is a super good way to celebrate with dads of young kids. Bring out the family for a day of entertainment, food, and joy!

  • Dad-work is hard work, so give him a chance to kick back and relax with a beer (or two or three) at Carson's Brewery. To add a little entertainment to your night, go the Friday or Saturday before Father’s Day for live music out on the patio.

  • Give your Grill Master Pops the gift of home-cooked meats. Whether you want to give Dad a break from the flames or hand over the tongs so he can use his favorite grilling techniques, Old Fashioned Butcher Shoppe has the hookup. Chicken breasts, brats (sausage, not children!), beef burgers, you name it! Fire up the grill for a Father’s Day feast in his honor.

  • That man and his truck: a never-ending love story. Help Dad keep his truck looking and running flawlessly with equipment and accessories from Elper's Truck Equipment. They offer a complete range of bodies, beds, trailers, and accessories for everything from light trucks to 18-wheelers. We guarantee you’ll find something to make Dad (and his truck) a happy camper. Clutch!

  • Life can be stressful. Add kids to the mix; it's inevitable. Help your pop relieve some of that stress with a medically-oriented massage session from Massage for your Health. Even if you can’t make it on Father’s Day weekend, get Dad a gift certificate so he can swing by anytime. 

  • Want to make Dad a home-cooked meal, but don’t know where to start? Let Marx BBQ  & Catering take the pressure off. You can come by the restaurant to eat authentic barbecue with original sauces, OR have it catered to your home. They’ve got all your barbecue favorites as well as sides, salads, and desserts.

  • Whoever invented brunch was an absolute genius. I mean, of course, dad's the real genius... Who doesn’t like a two-in-one deal? Dapper Pig in the Old Historic District has your Sunday brunch covered this Father’s Day with food made from locally-sourced ingredients.

  • Take your father on an overseas exploration without leaving Evansville. Gangnam Korean BBQ serves authentic Korean sushi and barbeque in an atmosphere that’ll have Dad feeling like he traveled to Seoul, Korea and back again (happier).

  • Give Dad a break from the lawn this Father’s Day weekend. Call Lawn Masters! Their expert team of lawn care specialists will have your yard taken care of in no time. If it's basic lawn care or some serious weed control, don't worry; the guys at Lawn Masters have it under control so the man in your world doesn't have to.
