If you’re anything like my family, you’re still hoping an idea hits you between now and Sunday that will help you celebrate your dad, or your husband, or your friends that are dads, or…you get the point. Even though ol’ reliable Hallmark can sometimes get the sappy words out better than we can, let’s face it, a card-opening experience will last for only a few minutes out of an entire 24-hour period dedicated exclusively to dads. So, make an event out of it! Gifts can come in all different shapes and sizes, and I’m pretty sure many active dads would appreciate a nice meal, or a fun activity in honor of him! After all, it is a holiday, so seize the day and check out some of these Father’s Day events that will definitely be entertaining for you, your family, and your friends!
Father’s Day 2009 Rebeccammendations:
1) The Hub, located in the Northwest Hills area of Austin off of 2222, is a fun, family-oriented restaurant with the goal of bringing back the good days of friendly service and quality food!

2) Max’s Wine Dive is holding Father’s Day brunch from 11 AM- 3 PM. Dad will always remember this Father’s Day when you treat him to a brunch including modern bar food/southern cuisine and all-you-can-eat fried chicken, waffles, and mimosas for $25 dollars! Call 512-904-0111 to make your reservation…there are only a few spots left! Check out my visit to Max’s here!
3) Breed & Co., the hardware store-gone domestic with home and garden goods and goodies, is hosting an event this Saturday, June 20th, at their 29th Street location and their Westlake location. Photographer Wyatt McSpadden will be autographing copies of his new book,Texas BBQ, just in time for a last minute Father’s Day gift. You can even take Dad to get his copy of the book signed, and taste a sample of Kreuz Market’s famous sausage, cooked right outside the store entrance. Visit with Wyatt from 11am to 1pm at Breed on 29th St., and from 2 to 4pm at the Westlake store. At the 29th location, sip samples of locally-roasted Kohana Coffee and purchase Holy Cacao cake balls! Who said that Breed & Co. was just a hardware store?
If you visit any of these events, report back! Happy Father’s Day to all!
