Treat Your Dad: Father’s Day 2020 in Columbia SC
Monday, June 15, 2020 12:00 AM by Kelly Barbrey
It’s time to celebrate the dads in our lives with thoughtful recognition and a few of their favorite things. From BBQ and beer to outdoor adventure and art, Columbia SC has a number of dad-worthy tricks up its sleeve to show dad he’s valued.
Nothing says summer like a little road trip for some BBQ. Celebrate dad with a BBQ feast from Big Bull's Bang'n BBQ. Grab it to-go and head to one of Columbia SC's beautiful picnic spots for an afternoon he won't forget.
For the on-trend dad, Granger Owings has items such as coveted Barbour jackets, Peter Millar sportswear and fragrances. Top off your gift with a couple of 100% cotton washable face masks in various patterns to coordinate with his wardrobe, just in time for dad to return to the office safely and in style.
For a day of outdoor adventure the whole family can enjoy, book a trip down the river with Palmetto Outdoors and plan to paddle, kayak or tube away those quarantine blues in the warm Columbia SC sunshine.
Whether he’s a fan of lagers, IPAs or ciders, Craft & Draft allows you to select a pack of dad’s favorites, crafted specially to his taste.
We know he loves you, but perhaps it’s time to give dad a little time away from the fam. For the dad who’s ready for a clean shave and a fresh haircut, book him a trip to Frank’s Gentlemen’s Salon in the Vista to neaten up that ‘do. Throw in a giftcard to Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea so he can grab a pick-me-up on the way into town.
Sophisticated dads will love a set of Whiskey Wood decanter tags to keep his spirits both uplifted and well-organized.
If he’s a golfer, he will appreciate taking a day to enjoy a round of golf with friends at Golden Hills or Northwoods followed by a pint and pub fare at Steel Hands Brewing (indoor dining as well as outdoor seating are now open).
If dad is looking to spruce up his WFH office, look into gifting a piece from a local Columbia SC artist, like Ty Davis Bey, and dads who are all about Columbia SC will love flying a flag with the city's new design or a patch of the flag design in a smaller version to display on a laptop case, hat or satchel.
