Fathers, when you go to the strip club, leave your daughters at home.

Or — maybe — just don't go to the strip club.

Cops say 24-year-old Santos Omar Barillas threw down a few at 7557 Club in Van Nuys over the weekend. Fair enough: Weekends were made for Michelob. Memba?

Unfortunately, police say, Barillas' toddler daughter was stashed inside his parked, cold truck in the meantime:

Barillos was arrested about 12:55 a.m. Saturday after cops found him passed out in the truck outside the club, according to police and jail records: His daughter was in the backseat.

The suspect had been drinking inside the bikini bar at 7557 Woodley Ave., cops told the Los Angeles Times.

Barillas was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor child endangerment and jailed in lieu of $15,000 bail, according to police and sheriff's inmate data.

Barillas was released Saturday at 1:26 p.m., but not before he was given a notice to appear March 20 at the Superior Court in Van Nuys, according to the sheriff's info.

Father of the year? The year is still young.
