Your Guide to Father’s Day in SA
Father’s Day is on Sunday, so it’s time to break out the corny cards, fancy ties, and Dad’s favorite beer. Whether you’re still “planning a surprise” this year, or trying to step up your Father’s Day celebration game, we’ve got you covered. Here is a suggested schedule of activities that will leave Dad smiling the whole day.
The General Public Father’s Day Brunch
Suggested time: Morning
Sleep in before heading over to The General Public at La Cantera for brunch. Every meal at the restaurant is delicious, but brunch
fans will love the wide variety and delicious food that will satisfy many tastes. The menu offers a twist on brunch staples such as the crispy quail and hot cakes. Egg lovers should definitely consider the shakshuka, a dish with soft poached eggs in a flavorful crushed tomato sauce served with baguette slices. For those of us who are not big fans of breakfast foods, the chicken apple club sandwich and the shrimp and arugula salad are just two of the great lunch choices.
One bonus of going during brunch are the $1 mimosas. The restaurant is a great choice to begin Dad’s day.
8th Annual Dia de los Daddys Car Show and Swap Meet
Suggested time: Early afternoon
This event is perfect for any car loving dad. Located at Traders Village, this car show offers
something for every member of the family. There will be rides for
kids, food, and music from local San Antonio group Top Shelf Band. Admission is free and
parking is only $4 for each vehicle. It will be from 12:30pm to 4:30pm, so come celebrate Dad, see some beautiful cars, and take the kids with you. https://tradersvillage.com/san-antonio/events/7th-annual-dia-de-los-daddys-car-show-and-swap-meet/
Suggested time: Afternoon
Want to spend time playing golf with Dad but tired of the heat? Top Golf is the place for you. With air conditioned hitting bays, full restaurant service, and free wifi, it takes the discomfort out of this notoriously boring sport, and makes it fun for all.
