Gifts for that great guy called Dad

Not every father loves OU football. Here’s what to get him for Father’s Day.

I consistently fail at Father’s Day. I’m sorry, Dad, I love you, but I never have any idea what to get you. There are only so many variations on the theme of golf one can buy as a present, after all.

So, for the rest of you out there that may have waited ’til the last possible second to show Dad you really care, here are some ideas.

For the Intellectual:
Bow ties. He already likes to read and probably wears glasses. Bow ties are the next logical step. Head to Steven Giles to check out some snazzy neck bows. Plus, the friendly, helpful staff can even give you a tutorial.

For the Wino:
This category is made for my father-in-law. If your dad is all about the vino, check out writer Greg Horton’s rundown of the best wine for Dad in this week’s Oklahoma Gazette.

For the Foodie:
Talk about perfect for your food-loving father. The Tasting Room offers cooking classes in a really lovely setting. Upcoming classes include cold foods, New Orleans cuisine and tailgating. Also check out [Artspace] at Untitled’s “A Taste of Art” cooking classes. The next class covers Mediterranean cuisine on June 25.

For the Geek:
Capt. Malcolm Reynolds (aka Nathan Fillion) shared his Father’s Day gizmo picks with Vulture. This guy knows how to keep a Firefly-class transport ship in the air, so I think you should trust him when he says Dad would love a Microvision Laser Pico Projector. (And yes, I’m talking about Joss Whedon’s beloved-but-canceled “Firefly,” for those who don’t live in Nerdistan with me.)

For the Adventurer:
Lucky you, getting the fun dad! Dad’s always up for an adventure, so why not head over to Rocktown Climbing Gym for a day of indoor climbing and bouldering? Or, check out OKC Kayak to hit Oklahoma’s waterways. They even offer a special “Dads and Daughters” and a Father’s Day paddle.

The other white

Americans buy more Sauvignon Blanc than any white besides Chardonnay, and this old favorite is undergoing a transformation.

Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Sauvignon Blanc is second only to Chardonnay in acres of white grapes planted in California, but the Golden State hasn’t determined the style of this American favorite in the last few years.

Red Rhone rising

As Grenache planting in the U.S. improves, wine lovers in the metro reap the benefits of French tradition.

Food and Drink Features
