Vivaldi’s is hosting a cigar night for Father’s Day on
Father’s day is coming up soon and if you are looking to take your papa out for that special day, here are a few options in Queens.
First, you can treat him to an outing at a lavish restaurant, specifically Vivaldi’s in Bayside.
On June 18, they are having a pre-father’s day event, “Cigar Night for Dad.” They will offer delicious cigars such as Arturo Fuente Double Chateau and La Aroma De Cuba Robusto and Romeo and Juliet 1875 Bully, which is imported from Honduras.
Do you need a drink with that tasty cigar? Well, Vivaldi’s has you covered.
You can buy from their wide collection of scotches including four types of Glenmorangie Original, Lastanta, Quinta Ruban and Nectar D’Or.
If you are eschewing the scotch to go along with that, there will also be an open bar for those in favor of other alcoholic drinks, and live music to move your hips to.
It will be hosted in the main dining room and the outdoor patio, if you prefer your cigar over the fresh summer air.
This event will leave your wallet feeling a bit empty, though.
It costs $125 with tax and gratuity included. Vivaldi’s is located at 201-10 Cross Island Parkway in Bayside.
Down in Southeast Queens, Councilman Donavan Richards and State Sen. James Sanders are teaming up to host their first-ever Father’s Day Tribute Luncheon on June 13.
The guest speaker for the gathering will be Clifton Watson, the director of the Children’s Aid Society’s African-American Male Initiative. There will be music by Tam Jams Entertainment and a dance performance by Isaac Zellner.
It will be held at Queens Church of the Firstborn, 226-01 Merrick Boulevard in Laurelton. It will run from noon until 3 p.m.
Limited seating is available so reserve your seat soon. RSVP with Ms. Hinds at (718) 527-4356.
On June 20, The Queens Historical Society will host a New York Council for the Humanities Community Conversations for Kids workshop at Kingsland Homestead in Flushing.
Queens Historical Society’s very own Karyn Balan will be guiding the children and their family members through Jeanette Winter’s book, Wangari’s Trees of Peace, followed by a discussion and activity. This event runs from 1 to 2 p.m.
On June 21, you can celebrate the summer solstice at the Queens Botanical Garden. This celebration will include Summer Solstice-themed crafts for the kids and garden tours for all ages.
There will be recycled and repurposed craft activities (while supplies last), a family garden tour at noon, an recycled high-fashion runway by Trashion Fashion Show at 1 p.m., and story time at 2 p.m.
Also on the 21st, if you are near Forest Park, you can go see a free concert at the Bandshell.
Take your father to listen to some classic Motown songs and enjoy the wonderful weather. The show begins at 5 p.m. The Bandshell is located at Woodhaven Boulevard and Forest Park Drive.
