Things to do for June 12, 2014

You and Dad at the Ice Cream Bar...
Things That Should Never Be Offered to Fathers on Father’s Day: job advice; Nicholas

Things That Could Make for Some Nice Moments: The Dad’s Sundae, offered this weekend at the Ice Cream Bar, made with porter ice cream, blueberry sauce, peanut brittle and whipped cream.
There’s Just So Much Sherry Here
