Spent the last few years doing the usual ribs, steak, and whiskey dance for Father’s Day? No more breweries left to tour, and he doesn’t even wear neckties? Don’t panic, we’ve got some great options to make this Father’s Day (Sunday June 16th, by the way) a winning one.

How ‘bout a class? If Dad’s a lifelong learner, take him to a cheese class at the ~CHEESE SCHOOL OF SAN FRANCISCO~. On Saturday June 15th from 4pm-6pm Andy Wild will be teaching a class all about beer and cheese pairings. Tickets are $69. Then, on Sunday June 16th from 4pm-6pm, catch a cheese and charcuterie class from Eric Miller that focuses on the preservation component of the two delectable treats. Tickets are $75.

Get Dad all squared away for pickles with tickets to the Brine and Dine class on Wednesday July 10th at ~LA COCINA~. Emiliana Puyana (Jarred SF Brine) and Mariko Grady (Aeden Foods) will teach you and Dad how to make your own pickles and preserves. Tickets are $80 for one or $150 for two and include snacks, instruction, and dinner.

The ~SAN FRANCISCO COOKING SCHOOL~ has tons of great cooking classes too; check out the full schedule for some of the options. Dad might enjoy Pizzeria Pizza at Home on Saturday June 15th, or maybe The Perfect Steak on Saturday June 22nd. Both classes are $160 per person and include food and wine.

If Dad likes to explore, take him on a walking tour. A food walking tour, of course. Localite Tours offers a pork tour of Oakland that stops at six different porky places in Old Oakland and Chinatown. The pork tour takes place every 2nd and 4th Saturday (that would be the 8th and 22nd of June), and tickets are $65.
