Patch Picks: 5 Wyandotte Father's Day Ideas

Treat dad to a fine cigar, some new tools or a Wyandotte fishing trip this Father's Day weekend.

On Father’s Day, we celebrate everything that our dads have done for us throughout the years. We let him know just how much his guidance and unconditional love for us is appreciated.

Here are five Wyandotte ideas to help honor dads this Father’s Day weekend.


Set dad up with some new threads or an entire new wardrobe at Chelsea Menswear & Shoes this weekend. The store features a large selection of both formal and casual clothing for men. The entire line of Tommy Bahama clothing will be 20 percent to 70 percent off this weekend. All other clothing will be on sale this weekend as well, except for the Made in Detroit line.


Those of legal age can treat dad to a fine cigar and a cold one at Belicoso Martini Cigar Bar. About 40 different cigar lines are available to enjoy at the bar or to take home. Father’s Day specials on cigars are being offered until the end of June. Aside from martinis, bourbon, scotch, wine, beer and many other libations also are available. Leather couches and big screen TVs also make it a great place to relax and watch a ballgame with dad this weekend.


Almost everything dad needs for those projects around the house can be found at Hood’s Do-It Best. Socket sets, wrenches, hammers and cutting tools are just a few of the do-it-yourself necessities on the store’s shelves. When it comes to working in the yard, help dad replace some of his old equipment with a new lawn mover, trimmer or leaf blower.


Whether you reel in the big one or not, fishing can be a great way to spend some quality time with dad on Father’s Day weekend. The waterfront at Bishop Park has a large fishing pier, as well as other areas accessible to casting a line from the shore. Several North American freshwater fish species live in the Detroit River, such as salmon, walleye and steelhead. Fishing licenses are required by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and all regulations must be adhered to.


This Friday, downtown Wyandotte will host a motorcycle ride and show as part of the June Third Friday celebration. Whether your dad is a leather-clad biker or not, most men love the sight of a shiny new bike and the sound of the roaring engine. The show will be held from 4 to 9 p.m. at the corner of Elm and First streets. The ride is a loop around Downriver and begins at 6 p.m. Bikers leave from the parking lot of at Eureka and Third streets.
