Tired of the same old, same old gifts for Father's Day? It's coming up quickly and we've found a few we think will bring a broader smile to Dad's face than the usual new tie, golf balls or fishing flies!

This weekend is not only Father's Day, it's also National Bourbon Day on Saturday, the 14th and if your father loves Bourbon, Pantry, the signature restaurant at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Natick, MA, is doing a three course meal paired with Bourbon. Get an early start on your celebration and beginning at 6:30 p.m., sample bourbon-infused fare created by Executive Chef Alastair Mclean and sip perfectly paired pours from Jim Beam – Devils Cut, Maker’s 46, Knob Creek- Smoked Maple, and Jim Beam Honey.

Begin begin the evening with an array of passed appetizers, each with its own unique bourbon twist, before making your way through small portions of three main courses, and end the meal with a Bourbon Vanilla Panna Cotta boasting Pecan Ice Cream and Bourbon “Brittle.”

On Father's Day itself, take Dad to Kings Bowl and enjoy a variety of options. During June, Dads and Grads get a special break - spend $50 on food and beverage and get a $10 bonus. And there's more - on Sunday, Dads and one [paying guest bowl free (shoes not included). Or take advantage of All You Can Bowl - only $8 for groups of two or more (does not include shoes).
