Ale Sharpton’s 2013 Father’s Day Gift Guide!

The Kisai Rogue SR2 Wood Watch is pretty pimp, yes?
Hook dad up with a gift he’ll actually appreciate!

Once again, it’s on! Here is the 2013 Father’s Day Gift Guide and I have some super cool stuff that you should consider hooking up the daddies throughout Atlanta, GA and beyond! From going shopping at the always hip Westside Provisions District in Georgia’s capital, to Tokyo Flash space-age watches, Spa Sydell massage packages, and brew kits, I have a lot for you to choose from below! So don’t blow the dust off that paisley tie you found in the back of your closet. Instead, check out what I have on the roster and actually get a genuine smile from the man you care a lot about. Thank me later. Ha!

Make pops a Soundfreaq


I’m a hip hop head, and thought this was a kickass gift, Soundfreaq’s Limited Edition Wireless Speaker ‘Boom Freaq’ Designed by The Novogratz . For any dad who digs beats, here are the deets! (Did you check out my rhyme?)

“Just in time for Father’s Day, Boom Freaq, a customized version of Soundfreaq’s award-winning speaker, Sound Stack, is now available for purchase on Soundfreaq.com for $350.
Designed by HGTV’s husband-and-wife duo, Robert and Cortney Novogratz, Boom Freaq will take dad back to his roots, while still offering today's convenience of wireless streaming.

Have dad tell time Tokyo Flash Japan style!

Simply put, these watches straight from Japan are nuts! Once you figure out how to tell time their way, pops will freak people out, trust me! Check it:

Tokyoflash Japan has just released its first two wooden watch designs, Kisai Rogue SR2 Wood and Kisai Stencil Wood.
Kisai Rogue SR2 Wood: Bright enough to get you noticed but subtle enough to keep you looking cool. The Rogue SR2 LCD watch, made from a combination of maple and sandal wood, presents the time through a circle of connecting blocks. Features time, alarm and LED backlighting.
Kisai Stencil Wood: An update on the popular Stencil watch, this limited edition design is made from natural wood with a genuine leather wrist band. Visually artistic, the colored LCD display shows the time in negative space, a technique that appears cryptic at first but is actually very simple to read. Features time, date and alarm.

Now dad can be a brewmaster!

Midwest Supplies is one of the largest retail homebrew and winemaking supply shops in the country, so hurry up and get a kit for pops. If you think it won’t arrive in time, just show him the receipt on Father’s Day and he will be happy, trust me! Here’s the pitch:

This year, home brew kits from Midwest Supplies are letting you be the brew master. Enjoy Lemon Coriander Weiss while lounging on your deck, Honey Weizen while hanging out by the grill or Raspberry Wheat while relaxing out in the sun. A fully-stocked inventory of quality equipment and a wide selection of fresh ingredients for both beer brewing and winemaking
Knowledgeable employees with years of experience willing to share advice and answer questions through a toll-free help line.

Be sure to check out their wheat beer recipes for the summer and their full selection of beer making kits. I ordered the Hop Head Double IPA. What are you getting?

Loosen pops up at Spa Sydell

I have yet to meet anyone who has turned down a massage, especially a father!!! Check out these tension-relieving packages that will do him and you a favor! Take him to Spa Sydell for some serious wooooosaaaaah!

Westside Provisions District brings it, too!
 

I love the burgeoning Westside Provisions District (1100-1210 Howell Mill Road, Atlanta, GA 30318) and dads will too after seeing these cool gifts to offer. Here's some info:


Celebrate Father’s Day the Westside way and surprise Dad with the “really good stuff.” Instead of the typical tie, add a few designer duds to his wardrobe from A-list retailers Sid MashburnBilly Reid, or newcomers Jack Spade and Steven Alan. If a Father’s Day feast is what Dad craves, treat him to one of the District’s renowned restaurants, such as Abattoir or Bacchanalia. For a special meal prepared at home, be sure to visit specialty foods haven Star Provisions to stock up on gourmet items, cheeses, meats, seafood and sweets. (1198 Howell Mill Road, Atlanta, GA 30318, www.starprovisions.com) Also shop for their Ted Baker London collection for the essentials of every man’s survival kit – a sharp stainless steel hip flask and a set of playing cards housed in a sleek leather case.  Add in a thermos, leather camera case and ball and roller pen set, and he’ll be the best accessorized (and most well-prepared) pop on the block. Indulge his inner grill master with a sturdy waxed apron from Birdkage, Brooklyn, complete with a care kit.
----------------------------
Happy Father's Day to all who deserve it! (Not the deadbeats. Ha!)
Cheers!
Ale
