Most dads are pretty simple and outwardly project the ever male stance of modesty. In general, dads tend to shy away from excess shopping or accessorizing and really don’t need many material items to justify their existence. A jersey or t-shirt form his favorite team, a tacky Jimmy Buffet shirt, a nice bottle of wine, some gym socks, or maybe something tech related all make for decent Father’s Day gifts and should be purchased before this Sunday (Father’s Day).
Whatever happens this weekend, hopefully you get to spend time with dad and we’ve listed some events below that he might like. If dad likes craft beer, then consider entertaining him with any one of the L.A. Beer Week events that start on Saturday and pour through the week till June 25.
Below are a list of South Bay Evens happening this weekend.
