Q: How can you tell when a normal joke has become a Dad joke?
A: When the punchline becomes apparent.
Here Are 7 Ways to Delight Dad (& Dad figures) on Father's Day in St. Paul This Year
1. Dine with Dad in a St. Paul Eatery
Find the right spot to dine with Dad, whether it's a fine-dining restaurant, a pub with a patio, or takeout. Check out our list of restaurants.
2. Take him on a Cruise
Give Dad the gift of cruising on the Mississippi while enjoying a delicious brunch. This Padelford Riverboats cruise traditionally sells out, so get your reservations in advance.
3. Treat him to an Outdoor Event
There are a trio of festivals to choose from on Sunday, June 20 - bring Dad and make new memories:
Back to the 50's Car Show at the MN State Fairgrounds
Pride Family Fun Day at Como Park
Rose Fest at Downtown's Kellogg Mall Park
4. Get him some new duds at Heimie’s Haberdashery
When it comes to men’s wear in the Twin Cities, nothing comes close to the craftsmanship and service of Heimie’s Haberdashery in downtown’s historic Hamm Building. From tailored suits to handmade leather, cigars, hats or even a hot lather shave, Heimie’s has something for every Dad.
5. Replenish Dad's Stash at Stogie’s on Grand
If Dad loves cigars, look no further than Stogie’s, which offers the finest selection of cigars, tobacco and pipes.
6. Hit the Links
Spend the day bonding with pops at one of Saint Paul’s three golf courses. Artist-designed mini-golf mecca, Can Can Wonderland, is offering a free pint from their tap selection to any Dad who comes in on Father’s Day.
6. Go Outside Together
7. Cheers to You, Dad
Raise a glass at one of Saint Paul’s many breweries or pick up some beer as a gift. At Saint Paul Brewing, dads with kids and/or dogs in tow alike can claim a free pint of anything from the tap wall, (or any NA option) on Father's Day. To add to the dad-ness of the day, staff will be offering up Dad jokes all day long too.
