Sunday June 15 is Father’s Day — and nothing shows your old man you love him like a big night out in Bay Ridge!
Start the weekend off with a set of classic rock at the Schnitzel Haus [7319 Fifth Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets]. Potentially Unstable — known for covers of classic rock songs such as Janis Joplin’s “Me and Bobby McGee” and Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” — will take the stage at 8 pm to belt out all the hits your recovering hippie dad grew up loving.
If your family patriarch likes to cut a rug, pass through Club Cats [10007 Fourth Ave. between 100th and 101st streets], where the Cats house band will serve up an eclectic mix of Russian, Italian, and French music, alongside stateside Top 40 hits all weekend starting at 10 pm.
For sports-mad dads, lace up those boots and sprint over to Longbow Pub & Pantry [7316 Third Ave. 73rd and 74th streets] for non-stop World Cup action. The soccer pub will air games at noon, 3 pm, and 6 pm daily during the opening rounds of what is arguably the world’s biggest sporting event. And you can get your hands on some sweet swag, too — the pub will be giving away shirts, soccer balls, and a replica Team USA jersey.
Finish off the weekend at the Greenhouse [7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets] on Sunday, where you can enjoy a three-course Father’s Day meal from 1–7 pm. Pops and progeny alike can choose from any appetizer, entree, and dessert for $32, with coffee or tea included.
