Five Ideas for Father’s Day in Las Vegas

Things to Do — By thmeeks on June 15, 2011 at 2:05 pm

Sunday, June 19, is Father’s Day — and if you’re in Las Vegas, you’ll find plenty of dad-friendly things to do. Sports lovers can enjoy some time at a sports book, or single dads may want to check out a gentlemen’s club. For a more conventional Father’s Day, you may want to take Dad to a Vegas restaurant — you’ll find every kind of cuisine on the Strip, and the majority will have Father’s Day specials. You could also take your dad to:

  1. Lagasse’s Stadium. This restaurant at the Palazzo combines Emeril Lagasse’s food with an ultra-sports bar atmosphere. While they do take walk-ins, reservations are a good idea. All diners must be over 21.
  2. Play a round of golf. Las Vegas has a great selection of golf courses, and the earlier in the day you can get a tee time, the better — we’re in the triple-digit temperatures now.
  3. Drink a Waborita at Cabo Wabo. Their patio is right on the Strip, next to the Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile Shops, making it a great place to do some people watching — and Waboritas are free for dads on Father’s Day.
  4. Hit up Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at the Tropicana. “Everybody Loves Raymond” fans know the actor as Raymond’s brother, but Garrett’s been a noted stand-up comedian for years. Now he has his own club at the remodeled Tropicana.
  5. Smoke cigars and have a Bloody Mary at LaHavana Cigar Bar at Lake Las Vegas. If your dad enjoys taking a Sunday drive, head out of town to Lake Las Vegas to enjoy a peaceful afternoon on a private lake — with a stogie and drink.
