He brought you into this world, and he can take you out. Hes the SOB who named you Sue, Millhouse, or Richard Width. (Seriously, we knew a guy with that name, and he went by Dick.) No dad is ever perfect, but for the ones who are close enough, its time to take advantage of a few Fathers Day specials.
For the design-inclined papa, the Wolfsonian is offering a one-year Popular-level gift subscription plus a lunch for two at the ultra-cool Dynamo Café for just $75. And the lunch can be used anytime. You know how hard it is to schedule around Pops naptime. Call 305-531-1001 or visit wolfsonian.org. Since all dads like to eat, Christys Steakhouse (3101 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Coral Gables) has put together a three-course prix fixe menu this Sunday only. Between noon and 8 p.m., $40 (plus tax and tip) gets your padre a starter of lobster bisque or caesar salad, followed by a choice of filet mignon, prime rib, pan-seared mahi-mahi, or chicken piccata, finished off with key lime pie or apple pie à la mode. Call 305-446-1400 or visit christysrestaurant.com.
And if your dad hasnt been to the mall since the Reagan years, check out the official online clothing store for the Miami Heat: miamihoopsgear.com. It has a whole section of items that are 20 percent off for Fathers Day, including a Championship Heat watch, Heat swim shorts, and a nice Heat polo for when hes pretending like hes not from the barrio. Call 786-777-GEAR.
