Sixteen offers the over-the-top brunch buffet you'd expect—everything from omelets to oysters—but be sure to make a pit stop at the nine-hole mini-golf course set up next door. Experts will analyze Pop's swing, which is probably the best gift his golf game could hope for.
Dining With Dad Made Easy
We don't know your father, but we're pretty sure he can pick out his own damn ties. So this Father's Day, give him the one thing he can't buy for himself—time with you. Here's where to make the most of it.
Because one day just isn't enough for the man who helped bring you into the world, the Wicker Park barbecue honky-tonk is unleashing an all-you-can-eat whole pig roast salute to Dad…on Saturday. The smoked pig will be accompanied by beer, slaw, house-made chips and a live blues band, belting out tales of woe even the big guy can't match.
Along with his dinner—think suckling pig or house-made tagliatelle—Dad will be treated to a trio of complimentary Belgian-style beers from Unibroue at this elegant chop and seafood destination. Think of it as three cheers for Pop—and if you're good, maybe he'll slip one to his son.
Single-malt scotch is 25 percent off, masseurs will be on hand to soothe his aching back, and cigars will be hand-rolled on the premises. Plus, there's an ugly tie contest—which means last year's hideous present (from your siblings, of course) could win him a two-night stay at the Hotel Sax.
If Dad just wants his favorite chair and the game on his big day, bring the restaurant to him. Primehouse offers everything from its famed salt-cave aging room—from bone-in filet to a 20-ounce porterhouse—to go, complete with grilling instructions. Not that he needs them, right?
