Celebrate Father's Day in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 20.

Dad's Day is a snap, and it doesn't have to involve the usual tropes. Or, better yet: honor those tropes and then head out for...

A Train Ride: The Fillmore & Western Railway is a SoCal staple. You really feel away-away, and the scenery? Vintage California. There are two Father's Day rides on Sunday, June 20, plus a margarita-themed jaunt on Saturday, June 19.

Pints for Prostates: It's a beer celebration with a particularly memorable moniker (and a good cause at heart). PFP happens on Saturday, June 19 in Manhattan Beach at Mr. Pockets Sports Bar. So, is Dad a lager man, or more straight-up ale?

Classic TV: The Paley Center for Media is spotlighting sitcoms your dad or granddad grew up with. "My Three Sons" and "Leave It to Beaver" are two of the pops-is-tops shows screening through Monday, June 21. Check the schedule.

The Hollywood Bowl Opens: Your Father might like that '70s sound. He might like classical. He might like both, and he might like being at a world-famous venue for its annual opening. It's a big night for a big guy. Friday, June 18

Father's Day Matinee: Cinefamily is screening "The Kid." Can Charlie Chaplin provide the guidance and life lessons to a young Jackie Coogan? This is just about the classic-est of all classics in the paternal realm. 2 p.m., Silent Movie

Wax Museum: Madame Tussauds Hollywood is inviting dads inside, gratis, on Sunday, June 20. Paying an admission for a child is part of the deal. How many famous fathers can you find?
