How to Celebrate Father's Day 2016 in D.C.

Father’s Day is around the corner, and there are plenty of options to celebrate your dad. From cooking classes to cigar samplings to hearty brunch specials, here’s our list of best bets. Spoiler alert: there’s a lot of whiskey involved.

Things to Do
Acadiana’s Executive Chef Brant Tesky will lead a class showing how to prepare his favorite BBQ dishes, including BBQ Short Rib Potato Salad, Beef Tri Tips, Gaucho Style Skirt Steak and Hanger Steak Au Poivre. Get your dad tickets to this annual event and he’ll surely become a grill master. $85; June 18, 1 PM - 3 PM. (901 New York Ave., NW; 202-408-8848)

Dinner and Jazz at Bayou Bakery
Take in a special live performance from international jazz star Reginald Cyntje at Hill Center and then enjoy a three course dinner from Bayou Bakery. Tickets are $37 and include concert admission, dinner, and a glass of wine. (901 Pennsylvania Ave. SE; 202-664-5307)

Whiskey and Cigars at Bourbon Steak

Pearl Dive Crawfish Boil
If your dad is a seafood lover, take him to Pearl Dive’s second and last crawfish boil of the season.

(1612 14th St, NW; 202-986-8778)

Take your dad on a shopping spree and then enjoy free whiskey and spirits tastings served by a mixologist at Shinola (1 PM - 5 PM) and by master distiller Becky Harris of Catoctin Creek up the street at Filson (2 PM - 6 PM). This is the kind of shopping your dad can get behind. (Shinola: 1631 14th St, NW; FIlson: 1543 14th St. NW.)

Early Mountain Vineyards
Get out of the city and celebrate Father’s Day at Early Mountain Vineyards’ Field Day.
