2016 Miami Father’s Day Guide


What To Do with Dad

Billy Swamp Safari
30000 Gator Tail Trail Clewiston, FL 33440
(863) 983-6101

Explore over 2,200 acres in The Everglades. From heart-pounding alligator wrestling and snake shows, airboat rides across the River of Grass and viewing animals in their natural environment like bison, gators, raccoons, turtles and lots of wild birds. Dine at the onsite restaurant and taste native cuisine and Seminole favorites like fry bread, gator nuggets, frog legs or for the non-adventurous eaters, standard American fare like burgers and hot dogs. Dads go free on Father’s Day.

Palmetto Mini Golf
9300 S.W. 152nd St. Miami, FL 33157
(305) 238-2922

Whatever dad’s golfing handicap is, it won’t matter at this top-rated mini golf venue because it’s all about fun and family. The beautiful mini course features misting waterfalls, bridges and lush tropical foliage. There is also an onsite Sports Grill.

Family Paint Ball Center
26851 S.W. New York Ave. Homestead, FL 33032
(786) 268-9208
The battle is on! This place will definitely bring out your inner warrior and it’s huge – three fields with a fourth on the way – so bring a cooler with drinks that you can raid after your war games.

The Pit Bar-B-Q
16400 S.W. 8th St. Miami, FL 33194
(305) 226-2272

Don’t make dad man the grill on Father’s Day. Head to this South Florida favorite. This place has been around for over 50 years but if you haven’t been lately, you may be surprised by its tidiness and injection of Latin flavor. You can still get the tender brisket, baby back ribs, honey and biscuits and mini key lime pies, but The Pit also has New York strip steaks, Churrasco, giant fried pork chunks and Latin sides like frijoles negros, tostones, cassava and more. Dine in air-conditioned comfort or under the tiki huts. On the weekends, there are pony rides and a petting zoo.

Bird Bowl
9275 S.W. 40th St. Miami, FL 33165
(305) 221-1221

With 60 lanes, a game room that includes air hockey and the latest video arcade attractions, plus 16 billiard tables, everyone can enjoy dad’s special day at this South Florida institution. On Father’s Day, Bird Bowl is open from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. and if you show up before 10:30 in the morning, you can take advantage of deals like buy one hour of bowling and get one hour free.

Gulfstream Park
901 S Federal Hwy, Hallandale Beach, FL 33009

Gulfstream Park is one of the nation’s premier Thoroughbred racetracks offering year-round championship racing.

Experience heart-pounding action from the Grandstand or be pampered like royalty while enjoying the “Sport of Kings” from a private luxury suite. Ideal for a corporate outing or an afternoon with family and friends, Gulfstream Park is sure to provide a racing experience unlike any other.

What to Get Dad

Father's Day Image

What’s the best Father’s Day gift for the Dad who has everything? Is your Dad a Crossfit or gym guy? Kybella® fat-melting injections are great for fixing troublesome areas that the gym can’t! Dr. Jegasothy of the Miami Skin Institute is the 1st US physician fully-approved to inject Kybella® for body sculpting and injectable body fat reduction. Kybella® injections are the perfect gift whether Dad wants the coveted “chiseled jaw” look, or needs help shedding those last few pounds around his waistline that won’t go away with traditional diet or exercise. Downtime is minimal, which means Dad can go back to doing the things he loves most right after the injections.

Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that destroys fat cells when injected into small – medium areas of fat. As such, Dr. Jegasothy can “melt” or reduce fat, much like a nonsurgical liposuction. Kybella® injections are best suited for those within 15-20% of their ideal body weight. For more information about Kybella® fat-melting injections, call our office at (305) 569-0067 or visit our website at www.miamiskininstitute.com.
