If you’re in town for Father’s Day, there are lots of amazing ways to impress your dad in and around the Strathcona! Here are just a few:
Are you taking your dad to a Toronto FC, Argos, Raptors or Blue Jays game for Father’s Day? Make your stay and his day even better with our Game Day Package, which includes a visit to our Strath Pub for a cold pitcher of domestic beer and two pounds of delicious chicken wings before you head off to the Air Canada Centre, the Rogers Centre or the BMO Field.
A trip to the batting cages could be a fun excursion for you and your dad! There are such things west of the city at Diamond Beach Sports in Centennial Park, and near Downsview subway at Baseline Sports. Bats and helmets are included in the cage rental fee at both venues.
Backyard Axe Throwing League (BATL) will let you and your dad experience the excitement of indoor axe throwing. You can visit a BATL venue at the Port Lands, the Stockyards or near Yorkdale Mall.
If your dad likes fishing, you’ll find plenty of action nearby. Catch pike and bass in Lake Ontario near the Toronto Islands, trout, perch and salmon in Ashbridge’s Bay, and a range of fish at the Humber River Marsh and Marina.
Eat man stuff
Most dads like barbeque ¾ it’s practically a rule. Cherry Street BBQ at Assembly Chef’s Hall on Richmond West is a nearby and stellar choice for brisket, ribs and all the fixings. Or for something a little exotic, try Korean barbeque at The Famous Owl of Minerva on Spadina.
A trip to the barbershop would put a spring in your dad’s step! Try Crows Nest in Kensington Market or on Charles Street East. This hip yet professional barbershop is great for a traditional shave, a good cut, a beard trim or some grooming products.
