A necktie for Father’s Day? Yeah, let’s not do that this year. Instead, treat dad on his special day—Sunday, by the way—with a trip to a local restaurant, brewery, or foodie hang. Or maybe Dad wants to hit the grill with some fajitas? Take it from us, he'd rather be stuffed than stuffy.
Whether you call him dad, pop, papa, or baba, we made a list that can satisfy them all.
Want a honky tonk-filled, whiskey-spilled Father’s Day throwdown? The Rustic on Post Oak is having a special Father’s Day brunch with live music playing throughout the day. The entertainment venue and restaurant also has an extensive selection of boozy beverages, including the classic mimosa with options to personalize and replace orange juice with cranberry juice or grapefruit juice for a unique creation. Or support a local brewery and try the Saint Arnold Art Car Indian Pale Ale.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. therustic.com
Give Dad the gift of a bucket this Father's Day ... as in, a bucket filled with beer. The cool Northside bar will offer $20 Karbach Crawford Bock buckets during the Astros game. Accompanying that is a steak-and-egg brunch, meaning a 14-ounce ribeye with eggs and hollandaise and spicy chili potatoes. That's just $20. Steak, eggs, beer, and baseball? Happy Father's Day, indeed.

The Melting Pot
The Melting Pot is serving up a four-course Father’s Day meal where you can totally binge and order as many entrées as you’d like.That deal would certainly meat dad’s expectations. I hope he will not mind that the food at this fondue paradise is cheesier than our puns. Be sure not to skip the cocktails, especially if your pops is old-fashioned.
