We are also celebrating Father’s Day this month and if you are looking to take Dad for a meal this Father’s Day, consider KARoo’s outdoor BBQ brunch with views of the water on Sunday, June 17. Before brunch gets started, dads can take their toddlers to Cayman Music School for their Daddy & Me Toddler Music Class where they can enjoy playing instruments and have fun making music. If Dad loves to cook, treat him to one of Bon Vivant’s coooking classes, such as French Cuisine with Chef Keith Griffin on June 12 or meat lovers can attend the Carne + Vino with Chef Dylan Benoit where you will learn about cuts and how to find the perfect sauce pairing.
At the end of the month on June 30, Camana Bay Cinema will be hosting an exclusive 3D screening of Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Secret Ocean. Take a dive and experience the beauty and diversity of an underwater world few get to encounter. The movie will be followed by a Q&A with Jean-Michel Cousteau himself.
