A room of his own

Never come between a man and his shed. That special relationship is brilliantly documented in a book by Melbourne-based photographer Craig Wetjen, who presents a fascinating visual narrative of man, place and identity across Australia. Just the thing for dad this Father’s Day.

 

Cheers, dad

Kanpai! Japanese hotspot Sake is offering a Blushing Geisha craft beer for dad on September 4 if you select one of the restaurant’s set menus.

Sake’s signature dishes include sashimi zensai, kingfish jalapeno and beef brisket with salad and rice.

Burn this

Inspired by traditional crafts from the apothecary to the spice blender, Eau de Vie’s new spring cocktail list is so visually exciting and flavourful, we’re already booking front-bar seats.

If you have Money to Burn, why not treat dad to the drink of the same name – coconut-spiced rum, sloe gin and apricot brandy – and watch his eyes light up.

  • Money to Burn, $23. Eau de Vie, 1 Malthouse Lane, Melbourne.
  • Also on September 4: Paired Whisky & Cheese nights, $40.

Boy’s toy

A flying toy, with an app and a camera, is the winning trifecta when it comes to Father’s Day. Get your geek dad the DJI Phantom 3, a mid-range drone that’s easy to master in a short session.

It comes back to base if the remote signal is lost, has built-in GPS and produces spectacular video and photos.
