A Foodie Father’s Day

Is your dad obsessed with everything food? Does he love to cook at home or enjoy new foodie experiences? Did you maybe forget that Father’s Day is this weekend…? No worries friends of Inspired Catering – we’ve got the eight best solutions to your Father’s Day troubles. We put together the best last-minute, foodie-father gifts that won’t break your budget, but will leave your dad smiling from ear to ear (and with a full stomach). Check out our list below!


  1. Taste of Randolph

If you’re looking for something exciting to do on Father’s Day, look no further than Chicago’s very own Taste of Randolph Street festival. With food from nearly 15 different restaurants, live music all day long, and a prime location like the West Loop, your dad (and your whole family) will have a blast at this event. There’s even the opportunity to purchase VIP tickets for all three days of the event, or just one day, which allows access to discounted beer, lounge seating, and reserved viewing stands to listen to music. And the best part – Phil Stefani restaurant Mad Social will be there all weekend serving up the best chicken & waffles your dad has ever had.

Does your dad have everything in the world for his kitchen? He might think so, but after taking a trip to Northwestern Cutlery on Lake St. & Halsted, neither of you will leave empty-handed. Labeled “The Candy Store for Cooks,” Northwestern Cutlery has products for every level of home cook, not to mention they can sharpen your knives right in the store.  The store is closed on Sundays, but purchase a gift certificate right from their website, or stop in the store yourself to pick out a more personal gift that he would enjoy.

Chocolate and flowers aren’t just for moms anymore!

  1. Wine Tasting Tickets

There’s really no better last-minute gift than one you don’t have to worry about for another month, like tickets to a wine tasting event. City Winery offers summer wine classes periodically, and you can get tickets starting at only $60! The classes are typically organized by region of the grapes, so it’s an exciting look into European countries and wine making. Perfect for the wine lover dad, you can learn how to pair food with certain wines, as well as gain confidence in wine tasting (you’ll be a pro by the end of the class). Check out events and tickets in Chicago (or one of their other locations) at the City Winery website: https://citywinery.com/chicago/


No matter what you choose to get your dad for Father’s Day, remember that it’s a day of celebrating love, family, and being lucky enough to have a father in your life. We wish everyone who celebrates with their fathers, as well as those who have lost theirs, a very Happy Father’s Day this year. Enjoy, and stay #Inspired!
