Dad: The Original Concierge
He's the guy who gets you to the airport three hours early. He's the one who helped you move into your first apartment (sixth floor walkup, no joke). He gets his oil changed on time and reminds you when you're due for inspection, he has his documents in order and reminds you to back up your hard drive. He's the one who knows the best way to route around traffic, the trick to fixing that leaky sink, and he always has a cold beer waiting because you never know when you're gonna need one. He's Dad, the original concierge.
This Father's Day, we think that the best way to celebrate all those O.G. detail-oriented dudes (and step-dudes and solo-power-mamas doing the heavy lifting) is to let someone else do the concierging for the day. Luckily, we happen to know just the right ladies for the job.
Here are a few ideas of how to blow Dad's mind with your own Dad-skills.
FOR THE CARNIVORE: Men + meat. It's funny because it's true. We'll get him set up at the grill (or bring a grill to you) with a selection of his fave proteins, flavor woods, and a cooler full of whatever his heart desires. He gets to build the fire and break a sweat.
FOR THE MUSIC LOVER: From scoring tickets to Springsteen on Broadway to reserving you guys a table at Joe's Pub, we can grease your wheels (and wrap them up nicely).
FOR THE BON VIVANT: A way to a dad's heart is through his stomach. From tables at Olmstead or Le Coucou to cheese classes at Murray's, from outer borough adventure itineraries tailored to his tastes (Arthur Avenue? Flushing? City Island?) to killer apartment picnics, we've got meals on lock.
FOR THE SPORTS LOVER: Yankees vs. Mets vs.... Sox!? (shoutout to Eleanor's Dad, sorry NYC-ers). Talk about it over dogs from the good seats. We've got your tickets.
FOR THE GUY WHO JUST WANTS YOU TO BE SAFE: Call Dad. We'll remind you.
