Dads are awesome! Beyond the stereotypical ideas of guys standing around barbecuing and drinking beer, these VIPs have interests that run the gamut. So, why not show your father (or father figure!) how much you care with an interesting outing instead of just buying them a tie? (But don’t worry if he loves typical Dad stuff like food, fishing and fancy cars… we’ve got those on our list too!) Check out our Father’s Day Event Guide in Toronto and the GTA for more ideas!
