Father's Day options include Scotch, craft beer and local music
Made plans for Father’s Day yet? With one week to go, there are still plenty of options for those who haven’t decided where to take Dad this year.
While the actual day can be reserved for more family-friendly gatherings, Turtle Bay Resort will debut a new type of event in Kahuku on Saturday. Give Dad a chance to relax and unwind at the resort’s Pa’akai Lanai during the inaugural Scotch & Cigar Bar from 5 to 8 p.m.
For $90, guests will be able to enjoy two different types of Scotch and a featured bourbon, a choice of two beers, a cigar and heavy pupu along with a Lindemans beer glass to take home.
Along with Maker’s Mark Cask Strength bourbon, servers will pour samples of Laphroaig Quarter Cask and Ardmore Legacy; guests will be able to choose two beers from a list that includes Ayinger Celebrator Dopplebock, Lindemans Framboise, Samuel Smith’s Taddy Porter, Pinkus Pilsner and Rochefort Trappistes. The featured cigar is a Rocky Patel Sun Grown Robusto and entertainment for the evening will be provided by local musician Alex Oasay.
Tickets for the first Scotch & Cigar Bar at Turtle Bay are $90 per person, $510 for a VIP table that will accommodate six people. Call 293-6000 for more info.
ALSO ON SATURDAY, local clothing company Hawaii’s Finest will host a special Father’s Day edition of its Revive the Live concert series at the Hawai’i Convention Center’s Kalakaua Ballroom. Food and drinks will be provided by Levy Restaurants, with live performances by Kapena, Mana’o Company, Bruddah Waltah and Maoli.
Doors open at 7 p.m. Saturday; music will start at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the concert are $20 in advance and $30 at the door; pick up pre-sales at the Hawaii’s Finest retail shop at 1522 Makaloa St. or buy online at flavorus.com.
FOR COUPLES with kids who are old enough to drink themselves, give some thought to the Moana Surfrider’s annual Beer Fest on Father’s Day starting at 4 p.m. at the hotel’s Beach Bar.
