Want to do something a little different for Dad this Father’s Day (which, incidentally, is Sunday, June 15)?
Treat him to a day of burgers, beer and live music at the PGA National Resort & Spa (400 Avenue of the Champions, 877-929-3231), where from noon to 4 p.m. on Dad’s Day they’ll be throwing their third annual Craft Beer Festival and Burger Bash, an orgy of suds ‘n’ sammies with a portion of the proceeds benefitting DreamRide and Special Olympics Florida.
The posh Palm Beach Gardens resort, the recipient of a recent $100 million renovation, will be featuring more than 60 different craft beers, not to mention burgers from a raft of local restaurants, which will be competing for the title of “King of All Burgers.” Sic Dad on some of those bad boys, including the patty from two-time King Chuck Burger Joint, and let him vote for his favorite in three categories: Best Burger, Most Innovative Burger and Best Non-Beef Burger.
There’s food for Dad’s ears as well as his belly, as he’s probably old enough to remember the music of Little Feat, the eclectic rock band formed by guitarist Lowell George in the late 1960s. Current Feat guitarists Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett will be performing from 5:15 to 7 p.m., backed by the New Orleans Suspects. During the day there will be live music too, along with cool merch to buy and a charity silent auction.
Festival tickets are $45 in advance and $50 at the door. Concert only tickets are $25/$30, and tickets for both events are $60/$70. You can get ‘em all here.
