Father’s Day Gift Idea: Give Dad an Experience

BPT_FathersDay_picLooking for a Father’s Day gift for your hard-to-buy-for dad (or father-in-law)?  What could be better than the gift of quality time spent together? For the first time, Father’s Day gift-buyers can send event tickets directly to Dad, enclosed in a Father’s Day card tailor made to match the theme of the event ticket. A couple of clicks or a toll fee phone call allows you to send a Father’s Day card that will get him to watch the New York Yankees play from a private Yankee Stadium suite (food, drink, once-in-a-lifetime memory included), tickets for a 4-course brunch and comedy event in Los Angeles, or a farm-to-table al fresco dinner at a Seattle-area farm, among other event gift ideas.

Tickets and cards are sent directly to dads anywhere in the continental US.

Father’s Day ticket gifts are available across the country right now for events in these cities:

Chicago: Cook Pizza or Go to a Baseball Game

Chicago Deep Dish Pizza Cooking Class designed specifically for fathers and their kids to indulge together.

Chicago White Sox vs. California Angels Baseball Game in luxurious sky box overlooking home plate, including all you can eat and drink. Bonus: This event is also a fundraising benefit. Proceeds go to a no-kill animal shelter called Famous Fido.

Los Angeles: Laugh, Eat, Repeat

Brunch and Comedy Show in a Las Vegas-style format with 4 brunch courses.

New York City: Take Dad to a Luxurious Suite at Yankee Stadium

Yankees Baseball Game in Private Suite at New York City’s Yankee Stadium, with all food and drinks included. Bonus: Also a fundraising event. Proceeds go to Bronx Museum of the Arts.

Seattle: Dine Al Fresco at Local Farm

Farm-to-Table Summer Dinner on a Farm outside of Seattle, where chefs from notable local restaurants and wineries prepare the meal, and most of the food is grown 3 feet from your table (the dining room is in the fields).

Brown Paper Tickets now allows any event organizer to offer tickets to any event mailed to dads across the US in a Father’s Day card, as one of the only ticketing companies that has the experience and resources in place to easily mail physical tickets. Our experience in selling and shipping millions of tickets a year makes us nimble for these kinds of promotions that help to sell out events. Live events create memorable moments, a perfect gift for any occasion. Events don’t have to be on Father’s Day – the card with the tickets enclosed just has to get to dad in time, so call (800) 838-3006 or order tickets before the end of the day, Wednesday, June 11, 2014, to ensure delivery in time for Father’s Day, anywhere in the continental US.

Foodie Friday: Brunch and Pickled Rhubarb at Skelly and the Bean

A couple Sundays back it was Fathers Day and this proud papa was lucky enough to check out Skelly and the Bean, a spot I have been wanting to check out since reading through their event posts on Brown Paper Tickets.  After a quick tour of the kitchen from Chef Zephyr Paquette, I was able to sit at the bar and soak up the homey, eclectic atmosphere.

While snacking on assorted house made pickled veggies, bread, and butter, I asked the incredibly friendly staff members and regular customers what they recommended. It soon became clear to me that I was going to try the Ham and Eggs. Knowing I was looking forward to a big steak dinner at home I was a little reluctant at first, but let me tell you it was worth every calorie. I cleaned the plate! The plate featured three soft boiled eggs each wrapped lovingly with thinly sliced ham with the perfect amount of slightly chewy crust filled with the lightest fluffiest deviled egg filling I’ve ever tasted. Slightly tangy, the filling offered a perfect counterpoint to the salty ham. A lovely micro green salad in the middle of the plate also got an invitation to the party, giving a crunch and a slightly-bitter-yet-refreshing cleanse to the palate between bites of the delicious eggs (which I frankly attacked with a one-bite method after a quick taste of the filling).
