Father’s Day: Where To Go For LunchAug 31, 2017

Wait…is it August already? No wait, it’s September. I think so anyway. I remember celebrating New Year’s like it was yesterday (well, some of it anyway). It’s hard to keep track of every special occasion. We would just like to remind you that Father’s Day is fast approaching and this year, you’ll give him more than just the Kmart mug that says “Best Dad Ever.” I know, dads are hard to shop for but it’s the effort that counts, right? You can always just pretend that he needs another pair of socks. Or maybe try slippers this year…?

If thinking of a gift is getting all too stressful then relax, because we’ve got you covered. HCS have done the investigative work for you and come up with the best places to take the hero of the family, the one that kills the spiders, the one that pays for your car insurance without ever complaining about it, out for lunch. Basically, it’s time to spoil him with a delicious feast. The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach after all…

Father’s Day is this Sunday 3rd of September for those of you who are forgetful (just like me). You’re welcome, and happy Dads day to all you unsung heroes out there.
