PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — It's Father's Day weekend so here are some ideas of things to do to show dad you love him.

1) International jazz singer - Yvette Norwood-Tiger - Virtual
Get dad some bourbon, put a big ice cube in his glass, and let dad watch some jazz-singing for free. This performance will be broadcast at the Cultural Council in Lake Worth and streamed live on The show runs this Saturday from 7 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. with a 10-minute intermission.

Yvette's CDs, “A’LA ELLA! and “whY NoT… Love, Peace, Joy, Jazz feature music from great composers such as Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, and the Gershwins. WPTV NewsChannel 5 is thrilled to sponsor the Cultural Council's summer Performing Arts Series, and they are hosted by me, T.A. Walker.

  • III Forks in Palm Beach Gardens has a complimentary stake for dad when someone in the party purchases an entree of equal or lesser value (up to $50)
  • Almond in Palm Beach is throwing a BBQ with pulled pork, tobacco smoked ribs, street corn, baked beans, and macaroni and cheese.
  • Brick & Barrel in Jupiter is having its grand opening weekend in Abacoa (they are taking the old Rooney's space).
  • City Cellar in West Palm Beach has Bacon Breakfast Pizza for $21 and blue-crusted sea bass for $38.
  • Saltwater Brewery in Delray will have live music and the Cousins Maine Lobster food truck.

3) Rapids Water Park - Riviera Beach
Either get out of dad's hair or bring him along for the fun. All 42 attractions reopened a few weeks ago.
