A Taste of Scotland
What: Let a drink of whisky travel you to clad hills, bluffs, straths and glens of the highlands of Scotland.
Why: Fine spirits and substantial eats (haggis, steak, gravy and mashed tatties) are everything a father could want.

Shave and a Haircut
What: Take your drapper father for a straight razor shave and clean cut at Barber Ha – a straight up barber shop.

Be a Kid (again)
