It’s that time of year to bring out the catcher’s mitts and tackle boxes as we spend time with and give thanks to Dad this Father’s Day, Sunday, June 17. Whether you’re able to enjoy a few cold ones with good old dad in the backyard or are sending warm wishes his way, we’ve got a selection of gifts and treats to make this day an extra bit special for the guy who carried you on his shoulders like a champ and taught you all about parallel parking and three-point turns (unless that was your creepy driving instructor, then disregard).
It’s totally time to COOL OUT this summer with a spirit or two to lift your spirit! You can try these original fruity blends at home, or better yet, head to some of these great restaurants to try their version. I’ve put together some of my favorites this summer from mixologists in good ole H-town and the Alamo City in case you’re in the mood for a weekend getaway.
