Below, we’ve gathered some of our favorite local foodie experiences that would make great Father’s Day gifts. Besides being absolutely delicious, these treats offer a chance to go do something festive with your dad. After all, nothing says “I love you” like sharing good conversation over good food!
Whiskey Tour and Tasting
Best known for their distinctive bourbon, Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co. is a Fort Worth favorite. So take dad on a tour! Visitors get an up-close and personal look at Firestone & Robertson’s whiskey distillation and aging processes, all while enjoying a stunning view of downtown Fort Worth. The tour concludes with a tasting in Firestone & Robertson’s Tavern. Yes, please! Book your tour here.
Taco and Margarita Festival
Want to give dad something to look forward to? Get him tickets to the Fort Worth Taco & Margarita Festival and take him out for the day! On Saturday, July 27, vendors will serve tacos, elote, Mexican popsicles, margaritas and more at The Yard. As if that’s not fun enough, there will also be a live DJ. A portion of all proceeds from the festival will benefit CASA of Tarrant County, so you’re benefiting dad and our community! Tickets are available here.
Wine Tasting and Dinner
Bring out your dad’s sommelier side with a wine tasting or dinner at Classic Wine. This cellar not only houses wine-lovers’ private collections, they offer personalized private events hosted by the best of the best! Gather some of your father’s favorite people to try select wines, while learning all about what makes them special. He’ll feel like the man of the hour, and may even leave with plans for his very own wine cellar! Check out Classic Wine here.
Texas Barbecue Tour
We’re lucky enough to live near some of the best barbecue in the world. So why choose just one restaurant to eat at for Father’s Day? The Texas Bar-B-Q Tour combines taste and Fort Worth history for a day dad will always remember. Visit three award-winning barbecue restaurants, talk with pit masters and enjoy a guided tour through our beloved city and the Stockyards. To book, click here!
We’ve always loved the Café Modern at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. While it’s worth a visit anytime you’re at the museum, their events are truly something special! On June 20, Café Modern will host a Mixology Soirée – complete with a Cocktail Competition from some of Fort Worth’s top bars. Tickets, available here, include six beverages and food pairings. Talk about a night out on the town!
BONUS Foodie Experience: A Personalized Meal Delivery
Of course, you can never go wrong with a gourmet meal for dad! Especially one that’s personalized to his dietary needs and preferences. So if dad is trying to lose weight, lower his cholesterol levels, or simply enjoy a healthy meal that tastes great, this is the gift for him! Send him an e-gift card or have him fill out a food questionnaire to get started!
Or if you’re feeling particularly ambitious, try whipping up one of our dad-approved Paleo Biscuits and Gravy for a breakfast he’ll love!
We hope you have a memorable Father’s Day and enjoy making memories with these foodie experiences!
