Dads of the Metroplex tired of receiving yet another pair of slippers that they won’t wear (or just another crappy card) for Father’s Day: This weekend at Delaney Vineyards in Grapevine, there's an event suited for the adventurous Indiana Jones persona lurking in almost every proud papa.
"A Texas Style Salute to Texas Forefathers and Fathers" features several interesting musical performances and guest speakers along with the requisite food and booze. Keller’s own country songstress Rebecca Henricks, songwriter/historian K.R. Wood and T. Gozney Thornton are just a couple of the musical acts scheduled to perform.
Add in some great wine and a little barbecue (along with a lecture by 4-time space shuttle astronaut Tom Henricks) and you have a testosterone-fueled father fest of the highest order. The revelry take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Visit the festival’s website for more information. --Darryl Smyers
