At Moto-i in Minneapolis, we know how important parents can be in their children’s lives, and we hope that you take the time every so often to thank your parents for everything they’ve done for you. With Mother’s Day yesterday, hopefully you were able to spend time with your mom or, if she’s not nearby, at least called her to talk to her for a few minutes.

The next holiday to celebrate a parent is, of course, Father’s Day. This year, Father’s Day falls on Sunday, June 16th, and you might be planning a day out with dad. If you’re looking for somewhere to have lunch or dinner, our Japanese restaurant is a great choice!

Reserve a Tee Time

Perhaps your dad is an avid golfer, but you only get to play with him a few times a year. Father’s Day can be a great time to hit the course and play nine or 18 holes in the sunshine. It will be important to reserve a tee time, since you may not be able to walk on, especially on a Sunday that also happens to be a holiday.

If you’re getting your father a gift this year, then a new driver or putter can be the perfect present. He can try it out during your round of golf and might even take a few strokes off his game!

Catch a Movie

You and your dad may have special traditions that you observe a few times each year. Maybe you always catch the latest movie releases when they hit the theater, and Father’s Day can be a great chance to see a new blockbuster. June is often primetime for new movies, and you can catch the latest action flick or see the sci-fi epic that you and your dad have been talking about for months.

Once the movie is over, and if you haven’t had your fill of soda and popcorn, you may want to grab a drink. Our bar is stocked with sake, beer, and wine, and it can be the perfect spot for an after-movie beverage!

Have Lunch or Dinner

You and your dad might both have busy schedules, and coordinating your Father’s Day plans could prove to be difficult. You or he may be coming back into town on Sunday from a business trip, or one of you might have to leave that night on a new work trip. Whatever the case may be, setting aside a few hours on Saturday or Sunday for lunch or dinner can be a great time for you to catch up, talk about life, and enjoy each other’s company. You might not see your dad too often, and it’s important to take the time to spend time together whenever you can.

Involve the Entire Family

Whatever you’re planning for Father’s Day this year, it can be fun to involve the entire family. If one of your children likes to golf, then bring them along to the course. If they love movies, then buy a ticket for them as well. If you want to have a big family dinner to celebrate your dad, then contact Moto-i today and reserve one of our private event spaces.

We look forward to hearing from you!
