I'd like to take this opportunity to wish my own father a happy one from afar because he is currently visiting his parents' land of Canada. And having outed my family as immigrants, I would also like to take a moment to state that ICE is an American Gestapo and that I fully support its disbandment and the prosecution of its agents. The Nuremburg defense isn't any more acceptable today than it was in 1945. There, now you know that I am my father's son. Happy Father's Day, Pop. Anyway, here are a couple things to do with your own daddies on this most holy of dad days. The Humboldt Botanical Gardens is hosting a Music in the Garden event at 1 p.m. with music by The Handshakers. Admission is $8, $5 for seniors and students and free for Humboldt Botanical Garden members.
Meanwhile, there's an open house fundraiser at the Sanctuary starting at 4 p.m. with games, food and drink, and a silent auction. Live music will kick off at 7 p.m. with a generally folk-toned series of sets by Cold Light of the Day, The Bandage and J Street Regulars so please bring your best-est patriarch to this multi-generational affair.
