Fathers Day is just around the corner but its not too late to get Dad what he wants.  I remember one year I was like 5 I gave my Dad a painted rock………… enough said.

Going to lunch or dinner at a favorite restaurant is always a good choice and if I may be so bold and a shameless plug we have 2 of the best restaurants around that would fit the bill http://www.blackhogbb.com 

and then we have on the other end of the spectrum the Best Restaurant In town Best Bar, Best Steak etc….. http://www.trrestaurant.com  


both are great choices and gift cards available!

Where am I taking my Dad Ron and my husband Mike Sunday for fathers day?  Only the to the best Peking Duck House I’ve ever been to and NEVER disappoints and I mention ofter.  http://www.pekinggourmetinn.comI eat so much I get dizzy – LOL.  It is Mike’s and my favorite spot year after year!  peking gourmet inn, va, dmv food, foodie, dmv blogger, lori tauraso, urablankslate, dinner, fathers day, dc magazine,

Go here on my Instagram and see the pure joy of me eating!  https://www.instagram.com/p/BqTU5L2FjO8/LOL  Ahhhhhh this is a gift for me too – but don’t tell.  I am picking up the check though.  When you go make reservations – it crowded load ask for mgr Bobby and tell him Lori sent you!

Now for THINGS!  I love my hometown of Frederick and there is no shortage of choices for great gift ideas.

First on my list is TREATY GENERAL STORE  I suggest some of their Grooming Products grab a few of those may be a matching masculine candle and voila the gift that keeps giving! He looks better and smells better too – LOL 

Next would be a GC to a real men’s Barber Shop!  ALL ABOUT MENS BARBER SHOP I can vouch for them – Mike’s been going for years along with several great friends ask for Joey or Josh.  You can relax in a cool comfortable environment grab a cold one and chew the fat!  


If your FANCY then go directly here – well hello Sir!  Colonial Jewelers you can’t go wrong.  Best of the best!  They are located right on main corner of town on Market & Patrick St. I am lucky enough to have my STUNNING wedding rings from this local store and diamond experts, as well as a few other great pieces!  I have bought Mike things here in the past as well.  The service is top notch and personal.  Ask for Sarah, Jeff or Patti they are the owners and have been in Frederick for ages and aren’t going anywhere.  I love just popping in browsing sometimes and adding to my wish list!  Dear Santa, …… LOL Sarah is good at keeping up on my wish list!

Because I’m thinking of Mike and the farm so maybe he can save his truck battery when he’s “working the fields” But I’m sure the Dad in your life would like this.  How about a cordless radio Dewalt cordless radio

This NEVER goes out of style and actually one of my favorites – I can cook on it too!  Old School Weber Original Kettle Charcol Grill WALMART WEBER GRILL

If all else fails you can always tell Dad you love him and paint him a rock as I did oh so long ago!  It’s a paperweight people…………  whatever you do for that special guy I’m sure he will love it!  

Cheers to you Dad & Mike!  Can’t wait for the duck!  You can leave your wallets at home!
