Father’s Day plans can keep even the most creative gift-givers and activity-organizers on their toes. Still, for the dad who already has everything, a memorable experience is far easier to procure. On the weekend of June 16-17, spend quality time with your father at many prime Midtown Houston spots for art, entertainment, food, or anything else that’s right up their alley.
Here are some adventurous and unexpected Father’s Day Weekend ideas to get the ball rolling:
Father’s Day in Midtown Houston: Where to Eat and What to See
The best way to start Father’s Day festivities is with a full stomach. That way everyone’s primed for a great day. Plus, what’s a holiday except an excuse to eat, eat and eat some more?
Have a hearty brunch for two or the whole family at a satisfying spot like Natachee’s Supper ‘n Punch, where you can dine on comfort food like fried pickles or an assortment of burgers. Wash it all down with a $3 Bloody Mary.
If you’re looking for a fancier affair, Brennan’s of Houston is a business casual restaurant with high-brow brunch items such as snapping turtle soup, buttermilk fried quail beignet and Texas shrimp and grits.
After everyone’s full, explore activities like Escape the Room or a calm afternoon stroll at the Houston Fire Museum. For a more contemplative day out, take your dad to Station Museum of Contemporary Art to see an exhibition from Cuban printmaker Belkis Ayón.
Then, if necessary, settle the kids in at home and head out for an evening of wine, beer or both. Reminisce over shared memories at Midtown Houston favorites like urban tavern Pub Fiction and Axelrad Beer Garden or grab a light dinner with southern charm at The Dogwood. Wine and cocktail enthusiasts will love the charming Nouveau Antique Art Bar and Sterling House.
However you choose to traverse Midtown Houston, make this Father’s Day one for the books.
