Last-minute Father’s Day ideas

We’ve got some big buckets covered here: meat, beer, and axes.

Are you the type of person who woke up this morning and muttered, “Father’s Day ... that’s gotta be the 23rd, right?” Nope. It’s this weekend. Need a last-second idea? We can help.

Devour meat

Black Bear Diner ( 9501 N. Fwy., Fort Worth + 12613 S. Fwy. in Burleson) is offering a Big Daddy Burger for $19.99: 20 ounces of beef, cheese, onion rings, bacon, and a sunny-side egg.

Hmm ... or lobster?

Cousins Maine Lobster will have a food truck at the Dalworthington Farmers Market (2800 W. Arkansas Ln., Arlington) from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. featuring lobster rolls, lobster tots, and lobster quesadilla.

Throw axes

Fort Worth Axe Factory (220 Sylvania Ave., Ste. 110) have dads and grandpas throwing free on Sunday. Not sure we’d do this one after the meat sweats, but...

Drink beer

There are a number of places to grab a local pint, but Martin House Brewing Company is right next to Axe Factory — and is dropping a Parker County Peach brew this week.
