Trust us, you’re not too cool to hang out with your dad. Take him out on the town this weekend with our top picks.
Thursday, June 14
Father’s Day Cookie Decorating Class, 4-7 p.m.
Look no further if you’ve always wanted to make Dad a homemade present from the heart but only ended up with Pinterest fails. Alexis Ruddock of Sweet Frosted Cookies is here to help you decorate a dozen organic cookies just for the old man — we won’t tell him if there are a couple missing, though. Reserve a spot for $50.
Bike to the Bend, 5:30-9 p.m.
Skip the gym and hit the trail from Waterside to Westbend with Fort Worth Bike Sharing. For $20, you receive a bike rental and three drink tickets to redeem at spots like HG Sply Co. and Rahr & Sons Brewery along the way.
Four-Course Beer Dinner, 7-9 p.m.
Pinstripes will serve a four-course menu paired with brews from Deep Ellum Brewing Co. Courses such as Chili Glazed Pork Chop and Passion Berry Gelato await for a $50 reservation.
Saturday, June 16
Wild Acres Brewing Co’s Two-year Anniversary Party, noon-7:30 p.m.
Reserve a spot at this celebration for $20 and get early access to four pours of exclusive Wild Acres’ brews. If planning ahead isn’t your thing, you can show up at 2 p.m. and for $30 have four pours of any beer that remains. Either way, live music, food trucks and a pint glass to take home is available to all.
Father’s Eve, 6-8 p.m.
If your kids can’t handle one more dad joke, check out Flying Axe Factory’s Father’s Eve. For $20 you can mix and mingle with other dads while throwing axes and retelling that crazy story that taught you an important life lesson. BYOB, plus Martin House Brewery is in the same lot.
Sunday, June 17
Happy Bunny Yoga, noon-2 p.m.
This relaxing afternoon can’t go wrong with yoga, bunnies, Dad and booze. A $35 ticket gives you and Dad one hour of yoga, one hour of free time with the bunnies, plus one margarita or beer. Proceeds benefit the Here’s Your Reminder Project, an organization all about rebuilding relationships and battling depression.
