Freeloading on Father's Day

Posted By and on Sat, Jun 18, 2016 at 11:18 AM

Balling on a budget but still want to show your dad a good time this Father’s Day? Skip the “World’s Best Dad” mug, back away from the photo gifts and give your old man what he really wants: free shit. Tell him to lace up his Curry Twos and get ready for a trip around the city that will have him asking, "Son, are you doing OK... financially?"

Tupelo Honey
1820 South Blvd.
Dads get a free side of bacon with any order on Sunday, and bartenders will be serving a special Chocolate Bacon Manhattan all weekend just for the occasion. (Yes, you have to be a dad to get free bacon. Yes, I read the fine print).

Tijuana Flats
8926 JM Keynes Drive.
Your dad deserves to eat like a king on his special day. A free taco and beer for your father isn't a bad start.

JJ's Red Hots
1514 East Blvd. 
If tacos aren't your dads thing, bring him to JJ's for a free hot dog (they're both just sandwiches anyway). Unfortunately, our signature Fear and Loafing dog isn't available anymore, but Dad will find something to fill the void, we're sure. 

Flying Saucer
9605 N Tryon St. 
This University-area bar has 82 beers on draft, but unfortunately your dad only gets one pint free. You can swing the other 81, right? 

The Pit
346 East Plaza Drive, Mooresville
Pull the race card on ol' dad with a free race at this high-speed go-kart track in Mooresville. Every race after that is half-price for pops. 

123 W Trade St., 9807 South Blvd.
Take in the scenery with the man who gave you the birds and the bees talk while he dines on wings. If he buys 10 with a drink, he gets another 10 free. If you try to talk him into giving you those 10, you're just the type of schmuck we made this list for.
