Father’s Day is the third Sunday of each June, giving us the opportunity to celebrate fathers, grandfathers, great-grandfathers, stepfathers, foster fathers, and other paternal figures in our lives. This year (2016), the big day is Sunday, June 19, and we’ve collected a few dining-out and entertainment options for you to share with the special man you’d like to honor on Father’s Day. Please let us know of any excellent Father’s Day meals or events we haven’t mentioned – we’d like to keep building our list.
It’s best to make reservations for any of these Father’s Day meals and activities – everyone wants to take their special man out for a treat on June 19! Just check out each website for more information about reservations, or reserve via OpenTable.com, which features many of these places.
Father’s Day Dining @ Elm St. Grill, Greensboro
@ Elm St. Grill in downtown Greensboro will be opening early at 10 a.m. on Father’s Day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Steaks, bison burgers (made from NC-raised bison from Dr. King’s Farms™), shrimp and grits (made with Old Mill of Guilford grits), crab cake Benedict, and other delicious choices are prepared with fresh, locally sourced and organic ingredients. The bar features 40+ wines, nearly 50 craft beers, and handcrafted cocktails. For reservations, check OpenTable or @ Elm St. Grill.
The Bistro at Childress Vineyards, Lexington
On Sunday, The Bistro at Childress Vineyards will offer a special Father’s Day Buffet from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., with more than 20 items, including prime rib carving station, BBQ, bacon mac and cheese, biscuits and gravy, baked potato bar, banana pudding, and much more. This extensive buffet is prepared by Executive Chef Spencer Wright and Sous Chef Hanna Jones, and we’re guessing there will be some delicious wine pairing possibilities, too. For reservations, check OpenTable or Childress Vineyards.
Milner’s American Southern, Winston-Salem
Open at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Milner’s is a great place to celebrate your father figure or have an “at home” meal any time. Chefs Buddy Milner and John Milner, along with Sous Chef Philip Reed, prepare foods that are a tribute to their Lowcountry Carolina upbringing and childhood memories of meals enjoyed with family and friends. Delectable meats and seafood are butchered in-house, and greens and veggies are hand-selected from farm trucks most of the year. And if exceptional food and a stellar wine list aren’t compelling enough, perhaps dad would enjoy live jazz on Father’s Day evening (or any Sunday night…it’s a regular thing). For reservations, check OpenTable or Milner’s American Southern.
Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Greensboro
With more than 50 years’ spent “perfecting the steak house experience,” Ruth’s Chris Steak House is THE place to take care of your dad on Father’s Day. The current Chef’s Feature is a surf & turf plate, with two cold-water lobster tails and your choice of filet or ribeye. Steak-lovers know they can rely on Ruth’s Chris Steak House’s USDA prime cuts of beef, served on a sizzling-hot plate. Need more convincing? On Father’s Day, all dads will receive a complimentary $25 dining card to use on a future visit! Check OpenTable or Ruth’s Chris Steak House – Greensboro for reservations.
At 7 p.m. on Father’s Day, come to The Crown at The Carolina Theatre in Greensboro to enjoy jazz performed by some of the best musicians in NC, including trumpeter Jim Ketch, “the Father of Jazz in North Carolina.”
On Fathers Day, at 2 p.m., the Winston-Salem Dash will play the Salem Red Sox. You, dad, and granddad can enjoy $1 hot dogs and sodas through the first inning, and after the game, kids can run the bases.
Be sure to stop by the High Point Public Library to get some free tickets to the Fathers Day HiToms baseball game: from 3:30-7 p.m. on Father’s Day, fun stuff is happening at the Historic Finch Field in Thomasville. Kids will love the bouncy house and a special Big Bang Boom concert. The HiToms versus Copperheads game starts at 5 p.m.
Father’s Day Package, Pinehurst Resort, Pinehurst
This Father’s Day, Pinehurst recommends “skip the tie and treat Dad to a golf experience of a lifetime.” Included in the Father’s Day Weekend special June 17-20 are rounds of golf on legendary Pinehurst No. 2 and No. 4, Friday and Saturday night receptions and dinner, hospitality room throughout the weekend featuring snacks and games, and deluxe resort accommodations. Plus, you can watch coverage of the US Open Championship and hear stories from best-selling authors James Dodson and Howdy Giles.
Brew Dash 6K and Brew Stash Bash, US National Whitewater Center, Charlotte
Okay, so it’s not technically on Fathers Day, and it’s not technically in the Piedmont Triad, either. But we couldn’t resist mentioning the Brew Dash 6K, which will be held on Saturday, June 18, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., featuring competition heat and recreation heat runs through the trail system at the USNWC. Afterward, stay at the center for live music and a huge selection of national and local craft beers at the fourth annual Brew Stash Bash, which starts at 1 p.m….refreshing after working up a sweat, no? If your dad loves running, beer, or both, this would be a great day-trip treat for him (and yourself!)
