News flash: Father's Day is Sunday. If you've been asleep at the wheel, here are several ways to show the dad in your life that you love him — and none of them involve a tie in a cardboard box, a new pair of socks or a honey-do list.
For the Family Man
Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort is pulling out all the stops for its inaugural Father's Day on the Back Bay on Saturday, which will include a barbecue lunch; beach activities; an amateur barbecuing contest; live music by a surf band; and a cardboard boat regatta. The price is $25 per person, or $15 for kids 12 and younger. Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and dinner will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Enjoy volleyball and horseshoe tournaments before the regatta at 3 p.m.; to compete, there's a $50 entry fee per family, which includes all materials. First prize will yield $500. Register for the day and/or the barbecue contest or get more information at (949) 729-1144 or newportdunes.com.
