Father’s Day Specials for 2014

Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne FestivalThis year, Father’s Day falls on Sunday the 15th of June – around the corner in case you hadn’t noticed. While something awesome and elaborate is one manner in which to celebrate the dad(s) in your life, you (or more importantly, he) might prefer to do something a little more low key, in which case a meal out is perfect.
What could express love and gratitude and make a guy feel really good, more than good food and quality company? If a meal out is how you plan to celebrate, you’ll happy to know there are plenty of Father’s Day restaurant specials going on on Sunday. Here are a few to browse…
