Hopdoddy Burger Bar, a craft burger and brew joint, wants to rock your taste buds with its June Burger of the Month: The Double Stack Comeback. The heaping double-decker burger is stacked sky high with Hopdoddy-quality ingredients including two Certified Piedmontese burger patties (verified all-natural, hormone-free, steroid-free, antibiotic-free and never frozen), cheese, special Alabama comeback sauce, lettuce, pickles and diced white onions on a fluffy sesame seed bun.

Hopdoddy’s Burgers of the Month showcase the restaurant’s talent for serving the familiar in an unfamiliar way through innovation and quality ingredients. That means a rotating selection of crave-worthy burger creations like the Double Stack Comeback. Upcoming burgers of the month include: The Cousin Vinnie, inspired by a sub sandwich; The Que, a barbecue burger; The Ultimate, an umami creation.

For Father’s Day, be sure to pair the burger with Hopdoddy’s signature Truffle Fries (hand-cut fries tossed with Truffle Oil, Parmesan & Chives. Served with Truffle Aioli) and, if you are taking this order to go, don’t forget to add a Roadie — a half-gallon bag of frozen house margarita — so you and Dad can chill at home.

#7. Give Dad a day off and leave the grilling to the pros

Keelers Cowboy Flat Iron

Cowboy Flat Iron

This Father’s Day, Keeler’s Hospitality Group is giving dads a break from the grill with a special at both their Liberty Station American Tavern and Smokehouse locations in Scottsdale as well as at Keeler’s Neighborhood Steakhouse in Carefree.

All day long, the restaurants are offering 20 percent off all to-go orders, and dads dining in can enjoy $2 beer or wine (with the purchase of an entrée). So, instead of stoking the smoker, all Dad has to do on his special day is sit back and relax with a great meal and a refreshing beverage.

Reservations can be made by calling 480.278.7044 for seating at Liberty Station DC Ranch, 480.595.9930 for Liberty Station Terravita or 602.374.4784 for Keeler’s Neighborhood Steakhouse. For more, visit keelerssteakhouse.com or libertystationtavern.com.

#8. Take a cool stroll through Butterfly Wonderland

Butterfly Wonderland

As one of the largest butterfly conservatories in North America, Butterfly Wonderland is a lush, tropical paradise alive with thousands of friendly butterflies from all over the world. From 9am to 5pm on Father’s Day, Dad will receive $3 off of admission. A great option for dads with curious youngsters.

Butterfly Wonderland is located at 9500 E. Via de Ventura in Scottsdale. For additional information, call 480.800.3000 or visit butterflywonderland.com.

#9. Help Dad Relax through Float Therapy

True REST (Reduced Environmental Stimulus Therapy) is a zero-gravity environment that allows the mind and body to completely let go, relax and reset. Using 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salts, the buoyancy of the water makes floating on water feel like floating on air. By eliminating the forces of gravity pulling on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, Dad can effortlessly relieve pain, relax, recover, and improve sleep in this unique state.

True REST Float Spa says that flotation therapy (aka sensory deprivation) offers relief and benefits which are cumulative — they build on themselves with each subsequent session, which is why the company is offering a 3-Pack Float Session gift pack this Father’s Day. Now through June 21, residents can purchase a 3-float pack for just $129. In addition, members of True REST can purchase the same package for just $99.

Find locations in Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert and Glendale. For additional information or to purchase the gift pack, visit truerest.com/dads
