Father's Day is a trickier holiday than Mother's Day. As early as March, greeting card stores, supermarkets and florists display enough Mother's Day gear to ensure that you couldn't possibly forget Mom on her special day. Father's Day, outside of the Home Depot, is less visible. Maybe that's because most people really haven't figured out what constitutes a good Father's Day gift: another golf-tee shaped lamp? A fourth set of drill bits? a tie with his grandchildren's faces on it? But before you run to the cashier with that novelty "World's Greatest Dad" martini shaker, consider giving Dad what you know he loves: food, and spending time with his kids. Whether he's a BBQ and beer kind of guy, a seafood lover or an adventurous eater, Chicago offers plenty of options to make his day. Once you've made Dad proud, don't forget to pat yourself on the back with a wine class or blues dinner.
