Father's Day Is This Sunday. Here's Some Deals

Jun 19, 2015 | 15:05 Fri
Cooking classes, straight razor shaves, chocolate bars and brunch everywhere. Father's Day is this Sunday, June 21 -- here's some deals and activities for that.

At Zotter Chocolate Theatre, the wonderful refurbished Yangpu factory where cocoa butter flows, tour goers get buy-one-get-one DIY chocolate bars. Guests pick a mold, fill in a few cocoa butters, and load it with toppings like rose petals, whisky bars, and raspberry nipples. Those bars are 68rmb each, and tours are 180rmb, but Dads get to go at the kid's price of 120rmb -- just bring kids as proof. More details.

All gift vouchers are 20% at Doc Guthrie's until the end of Saturday. Then on Sunday, fathers who come in for services will get a gift and a glass of top shelf whiskey.

Some of Kelley Lee's establishments are giving dads free beer at brunch. At every Boxing Cat Brewery, dads can get a free pint of beer from Saturday through Monday, while brunch is on from 10am-3pm. Liquid Laundry also has one free beer for dads, but only on Sunday. Their brunch is from 11am-3pm, and they've got some additions for the long weekend as well, like steak and eggs with foie gras.

Dogtown and Sumerian are putting on a family friendly Dad's Day Out. Deals for everyone on Karl Strauss beer, Lao Wines sangria, Babycakes cupcakes, Boom Boom Bagels and tacos. Pay 200rmb for two drinks, two food tickets, and a cupcake decorating sesh for the kids. That's from noon til late on Sunday.

Morton's, the Chicago Steakhouse, has cooking classes for dads and kids at both locations. At Morton's The Steakhouse in Pudong, the class covers crab cakes and a chocolate lava cake, plus a cocktail / mocktail for 218rmb and 10% service charge. Then they have a three-course set menu for dinner, which is rare for this restaurant, going for 898rmb plus 10%. The slightly more casual branch in IAPM has a better value four-course menu for 858rmb plus 10%. That comes with a filet mignon and a lobster. They've also got a cooking class for 218rmb plus 10%, teaching dads to mix a salad and cook mini beef burgers. Details here.

Bringing something new to brunch is Light & Salt in the Rock Bund. This Sunday they're adding a Father's Day Market with men's accessories, home goods and art. Brunch is on from noon-4pm.

There's no shortage of brunches and dinners for Sunday -- check out our Father's Day tag to see what else is up.
