Father's Day is on Sunday, and while it's not exactly an eating holiday, many restaurants — 69, according to Open Table — are hosting special events to feed dear old Dad. It's also Dallas Tiki Week, which is definitely more of a drinking event than an eating event, with fruity cocktails being poured at bars all across town.
Here are the best food and drink events of the week.
