We’ve been trying to come up with something to surprise Dad Potato on Father’s Day. It’s hard. Last year, we made him Viva El Papa t-shirts. This year we’re considering a Dad Rocks theme, but our glittery guitar card didn’t turn out as planned.
Thankfully, Mom Potato came across a few last minute possibilities to suit all Daddy types:
Ferdinand’s Drumming Squirrel T-Shirt is super cool and made of soft, organic cotton.
Shop your local Farmer’s market to find jams, jellies, honey and more welcome treats for Dad.
The beer connoisseur:
Offering over 300 beers from around the world, Novare Res in Portland is the place to enjoy a pint (or two) outdoors.
Stop by the L.L.Bean retail store in Freeport this weekend and treat him to a Walk-On Adventure. Kayaking, fly fishing, archery and sporting clays clinics are available for $20.
The car lover:
Take Dad to see 200 antique cars at Hodgman’s Frozen Custard in New Gloucester on Sunday from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. While you’re there, cross the street and visit the New Gloucester Community Market for live music, free burgers and lemonade.
Treat him to The Poacher’s Son—a debut crime novel by Down East editor in chief, Paul Doiron.
Hope this helps…. Happy Father’s Day to all!
