Plans for Father's Day - what's for dinner/supper?

We're have reservations at dh's favorite restaurant. It's a local seafood restaurant and we've asked my father to join us. Anybody else have special dinner plans? Grilling out? Special restaurant? The whole family over?

Roast chicken, potatoes, gravy, some cooked veggie and a big salad. I haven't thought about dessert yet.

My daughter has to work till 6 so dinner will be rather late for their dad.

We all try to eat lighter in the summer because no one has the stamina for hearty meals when it's hot.

We're having a crudite platter with a light vegetable dip.
Cajun red snapper with mango coconut rice
Herb rubbed chicken
Tomato and arugula salad with ricotta salada
Corn Bread

Peach cobbler with cinnamon walnut biscuits and fried ice cream.

My kids are grown, so they handled their own gifts for their dad. I got my soon to be ex-husband a Big Onion Walking Tour called the Ethnic Nosh tour. It will take him and his girlfriend through lower manhattan's Little Italy, Chinatown and the jewish section, eating local specialties along the way.

I'm cooking Ol-Blue's recently posted rib recipe. They're in the fridge right now with the rub on them. I'm also going to make that vinegar based cole slaw that John A posted way back in my Boston Butt thread. Probably some grilled potatoes, too.

We went out to La Tasca - a Spanish tapas resturant.
