Father’s Day, 2013, is days away and we’ve planned something special to honor the great dads in our lives. Do you know a dad, at any age or stage of life, who has a.) been a great role model to his children  b.) taught you lessons that have helped you in life or  c.) simply deserves a little recognition for being an awesome dad or father-figure? If so, we’re giving away three cool dad-themed prizes that he might enjoy in our 2013 Great Dads of Barrington Father’s Day Photo Contest here at

Enter for a Chance to Win One of Three Dad-Themed Prizes

To enter, all you have to do is tell us about a great dad you know by answering this one question in the form below:

“Who is a super dad in your life and what makes him great?

You have through the end of the day on Thursday, June 13th to enter and on Friday, June 14th, we’ll draw three names and announce our winners right here at

It is not required that you submit a photo with your entry, but if you do share a picture, we’ll enter your name into our drawing twice.

And if the dad your thinking of doesn’t live here in Barrington, no problem! You’re still eligible to enter. Your “great dad” is connected to our community simply because you’re a visitor at!

The best part is that we’ve lined up three prizes that would make great gifts for your “Great Dad” this Father’s Day…

Prize #1 – Kayaking with L.L. Bean

Post 300 - L.L. Bean KayakingDo you know about the Kayaking Discovery Courses offered at the L.L. Bean store at The Arboretum of South Barrington?  As part of their Outdoor Discovery School, they regularly host hour-and-a-half-long kayaking excursions on the Fox River and they’ve given us paddling spots for four people (an $80 value) to give away to one of our Great Dads Father’s Day Contest winners! If your “great dad” is not a big paddler, but would prefer a gift from L.L. Bean, they’re offering the choice of a $50 gift card to spend at the store instead of the Kayaking spots to this one winner. WOW! I can think of a few dads who would love a choice like that! And you can CLICK HERE to find the list of L.L. Bean’s upcoming Kayaking Courses, boat and fishing demos that are part of their Outdoor Discovery Schools Program.

Prize #2 – Meatheads Burgers Bonanza

Post 300 - Meatheads Burger, Fries and DrinkIf you’d love to win a $50 gift certificate to spend at the new Meatheads Burgers opening in Barrington in July, this one’s for you!

That’s just what we’ll be giving away to the second winner whose name we draw in our Great Dads of Barrington Father’s Day Contest. Meatheads is well loved for its 100% Certified, Angus Beef Burgers, fresh cut french fries and hand-dipped milkshakes. But Meatheads is also known for its friendly and efficient service and immaculately clean restaurants.

CLICK HERE to read more about what they have planned for the new Meatheads in Barrington, which will be opening this July in the Shops at Flint Creek.

Prize #3 – Blue Cherry FroYo for Four

Post 300 - Blue Cherry Frozen YogurtThey just opened last month and Blue Cherry is already a huge hit with Frozen Yogurt fans in and around Barrington!

They’ve given us a certificate for four frozen yogurts to give away to a third winner in our Great Dads Father’s Day contest. Blue Cherry offers customers “A memorably sweetened adventure from the moment you walk in to the moment our frozen yogurt mingles with your taste buds. With our unique variety of toppings and wealth of flavors, we encourage you to get inspired, become creative with your concoctions to enrich your flavorful journey.”

I’ll FroYo to that! You’ll find Blue Cherry at 115 S. Hough Street in Barrington.

So there you go! Just use this form to enter our contest and YOU could be one of our winners, just like that. Good Luck, thanks for sharing and can’t wait to learn more about some of the Great Dads in Barrington!
