Just like Mother’s Day, it’s the turn for fathers to celebrate Father’s Day in June. There will be a special treat as well at The Plaza for all the fathers. And perhaps a better way to celebrate a post-Father’s Day is via Bar 360’s show that will feature the father-and-daughter tandem of Hajji Alejandro and Rachel Alejandro as they sing the best of both past and present Pinoy pop on June 17.
