Father’s Day is right around the corner, and it’s high time we got to thanking the father figures in our lives. From fathers to grandfathers to sons and brothers, almost all the men in our lives play a paternal role in some way, and certainly deserve to be celebrated! And it’s only fitting that this holiday happens to be right in the middle of summer, perfect timing for bringing the family together for fun, quality time. Now don’t get us wrong—we know this particular holiday is an annual shindig; that’s why we’ve come up with some fun and unique activities for you and the family to do. This year, everybody can enjoy a full day of fun while reminding ourselves just how special the men in our lives truly are!
Let’s be honest: what man wouldn’t give anything to jump behind the wheel of our racecar and race down on a real track with nationally ranked professional drivers? Whether he’s 5 or 50, this activity will surely make the men in your life happy, and the whole family can cheer on dad, grandpa, uncle, or brother from the stands! Sign up with Turn Key Drive, run by The Car Doctor Ryan Pilla. The Driving Experience offers professional instruction with the use of an onboard telemetry in every car so the drive can see their route on the track. Turn Key is in Watermill between Bridgehampton and Southampton, and you can check Turn Key Drive for driving availability dates. Trust us when we say, we’ll spend the whole year trying to help you find a gift to top this one for next year’s Father’s Day…
Since it is June in the Hamptons, you do want to enjoy the weather that brought you out in the first place! Head over to Main Beach Surf and Sport to get gear for everything from surfing to wakeboarding and kayaking. Take advantage of the holiday and sign your man up for lessons, with the kids or with friends! After a long day on the water, nothing will go better with dinner and a celebration than a fresh tan!
This one’s not for the faint of heart: we’re assuming you’ve all caught at least three seasons of Deadliest Catch. Now that we’ve got your attention, touch base with Captain Gene Kelly and send Dad or Grandfather on his way on a Sportfishing Boat out of Montauk to bring home bass, blue shark, or makos! We’re not talking dinghys and 6 pound fishies, here. Plus, there’s nothing to go better with your Father’s Day dinner than some fresh caught fish!
No matter what kind of man you’re celebrating (athletic, business, young), this event is for all types: join Fran Drescher and Cancer Schmancer for live music, food, a viewing of the US Open, and other family-friendly Father’s Day activities. Not only will you be doing good raising funds for Cancer Schmancer’s WE THE FUTURE youth program, you can bet it’ll be a great day for everyone, not just the men in your life.
