Father’s Day happenings in RVA!



Center of the Universe Brewing Co. thinks your father loves beer and barbecue. Bring him to Hanover County for Dad’s Day Pig Out on June 21, from noon to 6 p.m., to listen to a little live music while whole pigs are roasted over an open fire by Firehouse BBQ. Tickets are $20. cotubrewing.com.

It really must be a theme — Strangeways Brewing is holding its second annual Father’s Day Brews and Barbecue on the same day from noon to 8 p.m. Along with live music, the brewery is upping the ante by throwing a few cigars into the mix.

Is your dad more of a seafood guy? He can fill up on raw or fried oysters from Rappahannock Oyster Co. at the annual Father’s Day Keg ‘N’ Oyster Fest at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, also on June 21 from noon to 6 p.m. hardywood.com.
