7 "Cool Dad" Things to Do This Weekend
3. Rockabilly Dad
Hukilau. 6 p.m., Friday, June 13. Mai-Kai Restaurant and Lounge, 3599 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale. No cover. Visit Facebook.
Despite talk of this being its final year, the annual tiki celebration Hukilau will not die. Celebrate the dad who loves cuffed pants, tropical tops, or pompadours in South Seas style this weekend by sipping on tropical cocktails out of coconuts or oddly shaped god-heads.
A large variety of musical acts will be featured, including the the Disasternauts and the Sweet Hollywaiians who travelled all the way from Japan to play. There will also be symposiums by tattooist Paul Roe, author Philip Greene, and historian Jeff "Beachbum" Berry. You can even grab dad a souvenir in the Bahia Mar's giant Commodore Ballroom, which will be filled with tons of merch.
4. Artsy Fartsy Dad
Sacred Hearts. 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, June 14 and 15. Coastars Coffee Bar, 12 S. J. Street, Lake Worth. Visit Facebook.
Mixed in with all the drinks and debauchery going on this weekend is a more sophisticated event for daddy-o. Sure, he may be fartsy, but is he artsy fartsy?
Artist Rolando Chang Barrero will be displaying his Sacred Hearts series which explores religious symbolism. But don't worry, it ain't preachy. Boca band Rat's Mouth will be performing at 9, so you'll have a chance to jam after sipping on delicious cups of joe and checking out art dad and you will both enjoy.
5. Rock Star Dad
Decades Records Showcase. 9 p.m., Saturday, June 14. Respectable Street. 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. No cover. Visit Facebook.
Rodney Mayo's Decades Records will be hosting its first showcase with a musical extravaganza at Respectable Street. Shows on two stages will feature musical acts Astrea Corp, Jean Jacket, Symbols, Gravel Kings, the Band in Heaven, and Wake Up. Feed your dad's inner rock star by buying him $5 drinks from the special drink menu created just for this event.
Warning: He may just play air guitar and embarrass you. But it's Father's Day, so chill, smile, and excuse yourself for a bathroom break.
