Father’s Day 2020 Miami Food Gift Guide
Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of the New Times free.
Fathers are just as important as mothers, and while Father’s Day doesn’t cause as much buzz as Mother’s Day, it’s still a great opportunity to honor the man who taught you to ride a bike, took you on your first fishing trip, and held the monsters under the bed in check.
When it comes to finding the perfect gift, you are likely to be in trouble. Not to fret: Miami restaurants and bakeries are offering creative last-minute Father’s Day gifts that will delight daddy’s taste buds. From sausage gift baskets to 24 packs of his favorite malt beverage, these flavourful gifts are perfect for celebrating that special father in your life.
