Father's Day in Huntington Beach

Can you believe Father's Day is right around the corner?! yikes. Have you picked up something for dad yet? How about skipping the tradition "tie" type of gift? What about giving a gift of auto repair? How about a gift certificate for an oil change? Pop in to see Francisco's Automotive and pick up a gift certificate for dad!! Francisco will certainly take care of you. Find him at 7662 Slater Ave. (714-375-2661).
Here's an additional idea for dad: Take him to the "Pups & Pinot" wine & food tasting . On Father's Day from 2-5pm you can enjoy an amazing afternoon of tasting great wines and foods, as well as jazz entertainment and a fashion show. There will be a silent auction for some great stuff and all is to benefit A Leg Up animal rescue. Only $25 per person or $30 at the door. And if you don't have a dad, gather up friends and come out to support a great cause. I already have my tickets!! Want more info? 714-328-8661 or
