If a quiet sit-down meal isn’t quite Dad’s thing, perhaps a speed-eating contest might tickle his fancy instead. This Father’s Day, Hotel Vagabond is challenging both you and Dad to down 10 mini beef sliders in under 60 seconds – and you guys could stand to win a weekend staycation at the hotel.
Don’t want to risk the potential stomachache? You can always just watch from the sidelines, while enjoying a nice (and civilised) meal at the hotel’s flagship restaurant, The Salon. Signature dishes include a Chilli Crab Burger, Beef Wagyu Bacon Burger with Edamame and fries, and a Grilled Chicken and Pineapple Burger.

Want to really change things up for Father’s Day? Skip the fancy dinner and take Dad for an exciting evening out at UFC Fight Night ® Singapore, which coincides with Father’s Day weekend this year. The live event, which is the UFC’s first in Asia this year, will see some of the top mixed martial arts athletes from around the world fight it out in the iconic Octagon. Featured fighters include Holly Holm (United States), Bethe Correia (Brazil), Dong Hyun Kim (South Korea), Takanori Gomi (Japan) and many more.

If your dad is into Chinese culture and/or martial arts, he just might appreciate a trip to the theatre to catch The Legendary Swordsman. The acrobatic drama performance is produced by the award-winning Guangzhou Acrobatic Art Theater, and features a mix of Chinese martial arts, culture, acrobatics and Cantonese opera. It’s basically like – dare we say – the Chinese version of Cirque Du Soleil, but with Chinese opera.
Location: Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, Summit 1, Level 3 | Date: 24 June | Time: 1pm-6pm | Price: $43
Having a belated Father’s Day celebration this year? Singapore’s biggest sake festival will be taking place the weekend after Father’s Day, so you can take Dad out for a day of sake tasting and shopping. Sake Festival Singapore will feature 250 different brands of Japanese sake, from 43 sake breweries across the country – including seasonal and limited edition bottles that would otherwise be difficult to procure. Now that’s something you and Dad can kanpai to.
