Where to Take Your Dad for a Drink This Father's Day

Sunday, June 21, is Father’s Day, and we all know that Dad deserves a drink or two for putting up with us. Show Dad you love him by taking him out to a nice meal. Here are some places where dads can get an extra special liquid treat for Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day, Denver!

Argyll Whisky Beer
Meat is where it’s at for Argyll, and on Dad’s Day enjoy Chermula rubbed lamb sirloin with Yorkshire pudding and green peppercorn jus for just $21 all day. Pints of Trumer Pilsner and Don Draper-esque Old Fashioned cocktails are only $5 all day. (1035 E 17th Ave.; 303-847-0850)

Blackbelly Market
Up in Boulder, take the old man to Blackbelly for some meat-licious meals like Colorado lamb roast or coulotte steak. All dads will receive a complimentary Old Fashioned cocktail. (1606 Conestoga #3, Boulder; 303-247-1000)

Colorado Rockies
The Rockies play the Milwaukee Brewers appropriately on Father’s Day. The stadium will also be giving out FREE Rockies ballcaps to the first 10,000 fans. Take Dad to the game early for a beer tasting and pre-game meal at The Sandlot and Blue Moon Brewery or head up to the rooftop for a beer from one of the 80 taps at the Tavern Ballpark. (Coors Field, 2001 Blake St.; 800-388-ROCK)

Cook Street
Is Dad the man in the kitchen? Then treat him to a special cooking class at Cook Street Culinary School. On Friday, June 19, he can take the Bites n’ Brews class where he will learn the basics of cooking with beer and enjoy a beer sampling for $99. If dad wants to be master of the grill, sign him up for the Methods of Cooking: Grilling class on Sunday, June 21, for $89. Dad will not only learn how to master an open flame, but there will also be a selection of craft beers from local breweries available for tasting. Students get to enjoy the food they cook in both classes along with the beer. Sign Dad up online or call the school to reserve a spot in the class. (1937 Market St.; 303-308-9300)
