Best Places to Take Dad on Father’s Day in Yakima – Our Top Five
Father’s Day is coming up on Sunday, June 19th. Do you have any big plans? Are you going to do something special for he who brought you in to this world or just gonna get him another tie to add to all of the other ties he never wears. We’re not sayin, we’re just sayin’. This year, take your dad out. Here are a few ideas you can do this Father’s Day.
Sunday’s in Yakima are synonymous with the Farmer’s Market. Why not bring you dad with you to downtown Yakima for some awesome food. The produce and trinkets are fine, but the hot food is some of the best in town and reasonably priced. Grab your dad and go for a stroll through the Yakima Farmer’s Market.
If you’re dad is in to wine, or even if he’s just in to having a good time (and who isn’t?) Piety Flats Winery will have live entertainment from John and Jeff’s Great Adventure Band. They invite you to bring a cigar, a folding chair, feel free to bring your own food if you’d like, but they’ll have cheese, salami and crackers for snacking on. Dancing, playing bocce and a good time to be had by all is at the Piety Flats Winery on Father’s Day. The fun starts at 5pm.
You can always take your dad bowling on Father’s Day. Eagle Lanes is a popular one in Yakima being that it’s inexpensive and is the way bowling alleys should be – no automatic scoring. It’s just bowling for the sake of fun bowling. Sure, they have pool tables and arcade games there as well, but the lanes are in decent shape and there’s almost always a lane open for you. What’s great is on Sunday’s they offer $1 games with $1 shoe rentals. If you know how to keep score, or don’t care about keeping score, you just wanna chuck a heavy ball down a lane, Eagle Lanes is your best bet.
If you’re dad’s into golfing, Yakima has an abundance of golf courses to take him to. Westwood West Golf Course is a simple 9 hole course complete with driving range and a spacious enough area so you can play as terribly as you’d like. You can find Westwood West on 66th and Tieton and you don’t need to be a member, basically just show up.
When taking dad out to eat, it’s suppose to be all about him so you should take him to a place he likes. More than likely, your dad is all about meat so you can’t go wrong with Outback Steakhouse. A true story from my wife; Outback Steakhouse also has pork chops on the menu. Her grandfather wanted pork chops so after calling around to a few different places in town, they found them at Outback Steakhouse, but after arriving, her grandfather started looking over the menu with the possibility of changing his mind. The end of the story comes with the rest of the family putting their foot down ordering pork chops for him as that’s what he said he wanted, but goes to show what kind of great food they have there. Always gotta start off with a bloomin onion.
