The Insiders: Tastes and tunes on dad’s day

It’s Fathers Day, people. Among the reasons to celebrate is to officially retire for another 11 months all advertising campaigns based around “dads and grads,” which we presume was once an original idea. While we’re on the subject, how come nobody ever targets May advertising for “moms and proms?” We hereby copyright the idea.

Another reason to celebrate, though, is because dads are pretty great. But what to do for pops on this special day? How about taking him to brunch? Both the Red Blazer and the Common Man offer Sunday brunches – the Red Blazer’s buffet runs 8 a.m.-noon, and the Common Man’s buffet runs 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

We all know dads are usually grill masters, so now’s the time to swing by the Meat House or Concord Beef and Seafood and grab some grub for the next family barbecue.

To whet dad’s musical appetite, here are three options: Stop by Makris Lobster House this afternoon at 2 p.m. to hear Alan Roux; visit Hermanos at 6:30 p.m. to hear Eric Chase; or hit up the Concord Community Music School for Alan Fraser’s piano recital at 7 p.m.
