If your pop is a little too generous with the charcoal starter fluid, there's no need to recharge your fire extinguishers and update your will before Fathers Day this year.

At 2 p.m. Sunday, June 21, Chef J Chastain will do the grilling this year at The Second Floor at the Westin Galleria. Not only will he cook up grilled goodies like Kobe beef hot dogs and shrimp diablo skewers, but he'll share his expertise with grilling tips...which presumably doesn't involve Matchlite charcoal.

Even better, the assortment of imported beers can quench the jalapeno's figurative fire instead of the literal ones created by amateur grillers. Really, is there anything beer can't do?

Cost is $30 per person. RSVP at 972-450-2978 or The Second Floor Web site.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
