Snack Addict's Box from Golden Fig
A visit to Golden Fig is always dangerous on the pocketbook, due to its plethora of cookbooks, oils and spices, and delicious artisan foods, many local. The Snack Addict's Box, which will run you $60, has a lovely combination of traditional snacks with a gourmet flavor. Aged white cheddar, chipotle nuts, pretzels and dipping mustard, blue tortilla chips and salsa, sunflower seeds, Hungarian salami, various dips, and dill pickle seeds are included. Smaller boxes are also available for $30 or so.

Downtown Minneapolis Food Tour
Described as "a fun cultural and culinary journey through the Twin Cities' most unique and historic neighborhoods," Cloud 9 Living's two-and-a-half- to three-hour food tour includes food tastings, and often stops at Local D'Lish, Punch Pizza, Kramaczuk's, Gorkha Palace, and Gardens of Salonica. This is a great one if you're new in town. The cost is $60 for one person or $105 for two.

Father's Day Cruise on the Mississippi
A sunset cruise on a Padelford riverboat in St. Paul includes a dinner with a Caesar salad, baked manicotti, a pot roast, roasted veggies, potatoes, coffee, and dessert. Brunch includes French toast with berries and syrup, sausage links, fresh fruit, muffins and pastries, fried potatoes, ham and turkey, various salads, scrambled eggs with cheese, salsa, ham and bacon, various salads, fruit juices, and coffee. Both cruises are about $40 per person.

Beer Brewing Class
If your dad's always wanted to learn how to brew his own brew, now you can buy him admission to Going All Grain, a four-hour class at Northern Brewer for just $15. He'll get to see the process of brewing a single-infusion, all-grain batch from beginning to end in a small group setting.

Cooks of Crocus Hill Class
Even if he's not the classroom type, a "Scotch and Steak" demonstration class at Cooks of Crocus Hill might be just what the doctor ordered. (Meats include hamburger, seared ahi tuna, and dry-aged prime rib, with mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and sweet potato fries on the side.) Or, a Build-Your-Own-Beer dinner, with more hands-on participation, and a selection of five beers to accompany chips and salsa, corn fritters, grilled flank steak, ceviche, and chocolate souffles with chili cream. Classes run about $75, and Cooks has dozens of other options.
