Still looking for something to do for Father's Day? We have a few suggestions.

Taste Carolina is holding special Father's Day food walking tours in Raleigh, Durham and Winston Salem on Sunday. The tours take you to five or more restaurants, shops, breweries and bars to experience the flavors of North Carolina. Participants will learn about city's history and architecture and will get a chance to interact with chefs and artisans.

In Raleigh, the tour runs from 3:30 to 7 p.m. and visits Sitti, Chuck’s, Busy Bee, Natty Greene’s and C Grace. It costs $62.50 per person. 

In Durham, enjoy lunch and beer tastings for $52.50 per person. The tour, which runs from noon to 3:30 p.m., visits Fullsteam, Bull City Burger and Brewery, Tyler’s Taproom, Reliable Cheese and a number of food trucks.

And in Winston-Salem, the tour offers an eclectic mix of barbecue, beer and brunch from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. For $42.50 per person, you will visit Foothills Brewery, Bib’s, Breakfast of Course, Sixth and Vine and Camino Bakery.

All stops are subject to change. 

And if you can't make these tours, there are also gift certificates available for their regular Saturday tours in Raleigh, Winston Salem, Durham, Greensboro, Hillsborough and Chapel Hill/Carrboro. And the certificates do not expire. 

You can make tour reservations or get gift certificates online.

If you are in the mood for some music, head over to the American Tobacco Campus on Sunday for Pops for Pops, part of their Music on the Lawn series. The free evening of music starts at 5 p.m. with performances from the Durham Community Concert Band, which is made up of all ages and music levels. The band’s repertoire includes marches, classical, patriotic, Broadway hits. They will be joined by the Durham Jazz Orchestra.

For family fun, Marbles Kids Museum is offering a Father's Day celebration on Saturday complete with manly mustaches, tool tinkering and racing relays. 

What do you have planned for Dad this weekend?
