If your pop rocks and deserves a treat, check out these sweet spots and spectacular celebrations. We’ve got Father’s Day unwrapped. . .

Pop RocksSUGAR DADDY
Could anything be sweeter than dear ol’ dad? Giving him some serious competition is the InterContinental Hong Kong’s decadently delicious Contemporary Afternoon Tea Set. Launched last month by the hotels’ new Executive Pastry Chef Cyril Dupuis, formerly in charge of pastry operations in all of the Alain Ducasse Paris restaurants, this so-delicious-you-have-to-try-it-to-believe-it tea boasts a sensational combination of flavours and textures that are a dreamy delight on the palate. This weekend, why not spend a little time catching up with dad while taking in the jaw-dropping views and contemporary classical sounds of the InterCon’s Lobby Lounge? Sip on one of 12 exotic international teas from Mariage Frères and savour tea-sandwiches and freshly baked scones before indulging in the legendary pastry selection featuring Vanilla Tarts, Passion Fruit Ginger Tartelettes, Caramel Éclairs, Strawberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Orange Elysée and samplings from a rotating dessert showcase including the Chef’s signature Lemon Sweet & Sour Tart, Vanilla Millefeuille, and Caramel Milk Chocolate Cake.  (HK$428 for 2 ppl Mon–Fri, HK$488 for 2 ppl Sat-Sun, 2313 2323)
