Tucson: Happy Father’s Day

Lots of good things are going on. Enjoy free wine tasting, complimentary milkshake with purchase, sausage fest, prime rib, surf & turf, and more…

And love your dad while he’s around.

From Tucson’s favorite wine maven:

This week CataVinos Wines celebrate fathers and fatherhood. Taste some wines that dad is sure to enjoy while he’s relaxing on the patio, BBQ-ing or enjoying his favorite meal. Bring in your father and his tasting is free. This is your chance to spend some quality time with dear old dad and still have money left over to take him to dinner too.
Wine tastings are:
June 17 and 18 – 4 to 8 pm with jazz/blues on Sat. only
Six wines for $10.00
($8.00 when you take home a bottle over $10.00 or free with case purchase)

For dads who like to rock out with their brat out (no wiener jokes) a sausage fest with $4 vodka drinks and a tasty variety of sausages at the Bashful Bandit from 10 am to 2 pm during Sundays on the Strip (the Speedway strip that is.)
