Celebrating Father’s Day Near Roosevelt Island

June 13, 2019

With Father’s Day coming up on Sunday, June 16th, it’s the perfect time to start planning what you’ll do with Dad on his special day. If your Father will be in the greater New York City area, consider spending a day in New York taking advantage of all the activities happening near The Octagon.

Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden – Head into Astoria to take Dad to one of the best beer gardens in the city! Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden is an authentic Czech beer hall that offer plenty of outdoor picnic tables, where you can enjoy the beautiful weather while sipping on some brews. Order some platters of classic German fare including a variety of sausage and pretzels and sample their European and domestic beer lineup.

Instruments of Rock and Roll Exhibit – If your Dad is a classic rock fan, you wont want to miss the “Play It loud: instruments of Rock and Roll” exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Running now through October, the exhibit commemorates favorite artists from the era, showcasing artist and concert memorabilia in addition to hundreds of instruments used by some of the greats like Chuck Berry, the Beatles, Van Halen and more. Visit the site below for more information and tickets.

Father’s Day Brunch – If your Father is a foodie, take him out for brunch at Jams, a low-key yet trendy eatery serving up American cuisine favorites in a casual environment. The restaurant specializes in their farm-to-table style offerings, so you know you’re always getting a fresh taste of their seasonal menu. Stop in on Father’s Day to try some of their favorites like the Jams Burger, Jams Chicken Plate or the Maine Sea Scallops.
