It is never too early to make plans for Father’s Day on Sunday, June 16. This coming from a father, of course.

For dads who enjoy food, beer, cigars or some combination of the three, we have come up with some terrific Father’s Day ideas. Some require advance planning. Others can be done on the spur of the moment.

Landmark on Route 66

Fuel 66 food truck park,

2439 E. 11th St.

Father’s Day will mark the grand-opening ceremonies for the new Landmark on Route 66 food truck. The event will feature one trip through a buffet of traditional breakfast-brunch items for $25 per person; a carafe of sparkling wine is included. The truck’s regular menu, with items such as Cuban Pickle Crisis, a pickle wrapped in Swiss cheese, wrapped in ham, battered and waffled, also will be available. The event, which runs 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., also includes live music, a full bar, dog park and lots of televisions.

Marshall Brewing Co.

618 S. Wheeling Ave.

Surprise Dad with Marshall’s “Buy a Friend a Pint” program. It allows a patron to pre-purchase a pint for someone else. The brewery keeps track of these pints on a bulletin board to the right of the tap room bar. If your name is on the board, tell the bartender and choose your pint. So don’t tell Dad, but buy a pint for him ahead of time and drop by the biergarten from 1-7 p.m. on Father’s Day. As Wes Alexander, director of sales and marketing, says, “Sharing is caring.” The tap room is open from 2-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, noon to 10 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 1-7 p.m. Sunday.

Tulsa Hills Cigar Cellar & Market

7420 S. Olympia Ave.

For the cigar-smoking dad, Tulsa Hills Cigar Cellar & Market just started a Cigar of the Month Club. Members may sign up for a single cigar for $10 a month or a four-pack for $30 a month, which comes with a cutter and pack of matches. “The single pack features special or hard-to-find cigars and comes with an information pamphlet,” said Andy Cox, cigar manager. “The four-pack has more common but still good cigars.” Go by the store to sign up. Hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.


600 Riverwalk Terrace, Jenks

For the dad who likes food and beer AND golf, it’s hard to beat FlyingTee. On Father’s Day, all dads and inspirational father figures eat free with the purchase of another regular full-price menu item. Reserve a bay to get in some swings and enjoy a cool one from the bar. Go to to check out the special events running June 13-16 to celebrate FlyingTee’s third anniversary.

New Era: Fine Fermentations

321 S. Frankfort Ave.

If your dad requires a gluten-free diet and likes gluten-free beer, too, you have come to the right place. New Era is all gluten-free all the time and has a cool ambience at an old downtown building known as The Dock. Go check out the current lineup of craft beers brewed on site and have a bite. The menu includes such items as fish and chips, buttermilk-battered chicken breast, street tacos and nachos. It is open from 3-10 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday, 11 a.m. to midnight Friday-Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.
