Want to make your dad feel special this Father's Day? Check out these father-friendly events and ideas going on in Memphis from June 19 through 21, 2009.

Exotic Italian Car Show: If your dad loves cars, he won't want to miss the Exotic Italian Car Show being held on Father's Day at Germantown Municipal Park. From 12:00 noon until 5:00 p.m., Ferraris, Maseratis, Lamborghinis, Bentleys, Porches, and many other exotic cars will be on display. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for kids 3-10. Proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity.
Brunch at the Peabody Hotel: Treat your dad to a special feast at the Peabody. Brunch is served from 11:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. and champagne is available after 12:00 p.m. The Father's Day Brunch is $48.00 for adults and $18.00 for children ages 5-12. Prices do not include tax and gratuity. Call 901-529-3668 for reservations (required).
Poker Playing Dads will be thrilled with a trip down to Tunica to try their luck at the casinos. Some of the casinos even have special Father's Day promotions going on all weekend long.
Barbecue Dinner: Dads love barbecue so why not treat your father to some authentic Memphis-style ribs or pulled pork? With so many restaurants to choose from in the Memphis area, you won't have any trouble finding the perfect barbecue for Dad.
Play Golf: Does your dad play golf? Spend the day on the green with him on one of Memphis' eight public golf courses. Just be sure to let him win!
Father's Day Gift Ideas: The WMC website is offering up some thoughtful Father's Day gifts that don't cost a thing. View and print their cute Father's Day coupons that will entitle your dad to breakfast in bed, free lawn care, and other goodies he will be sure to love.
Make sure also to sign up for restaurants e-clubs. This is a great way to get money off your meal. I've received coupons for Birthdays & Mother's Day for either $5.00 off meal or free appetizers at places like O'Charleys, Logans, Chilis, Longhorn etc.
I try to update the calendar frequently, but please call ahead to confirm the Kids Eat Free promotions are still valid as these offers can change. Have a Kids Eat Free deal you want to add? Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
