With Father’s Day around the corner, it might be time to start putting together a plan for your favorite dad or grandfather. So, here’s five things to do in and around Lake Highlands this weekend.

Go ax throwing

Class Axe Throwing| 715 N Glenville Drive Unit 440

In a time flooded with digital golf simulators and two hour zoom meetings, sometimes men just need to get back to their roots, and what better way to do that than throwing a heavy piece of sharp metal at a block of wood? From Lake Highlands, the closest venue is Class Axe Throwing in Richardson. Class Axe Throwing offers hour-long reservations. For groups of 4-12 people, an hour-long session is $28.99 per person. Reservations made in advance are required.

Get a steak

Steakyard | 6726 Shady Brook Lane

If your dad isn’t looking to sweat it out over the grill this Sunday, Steakyard offers an affordable alternative. Offering a nine-ounce tenderloin bistro steak for 26, a 10 ounce coulotte for 32 and a 14 ounce Akaushi ribeye for 48, Steakyard offers elevated fare at approachable prices. The menu also features vodka rigatoni, salmon, branzino and a lobster risotto.

Tee off

Topgolf | 8787 Park Lane

For the golf nut, a casual afternoon in one of Topgolf’s bays may be the optimal Father’s Day treat. For Father’s Day, select pairs of golf gloves will be available on-site from June 10-16 for $10. In addition, every gift card purchase of $50 will come with a free $15 gift card from June 6-16.

Grab a taco

Resident Taqueria | 9661 Audelia Road

Offering inventive and elevated takes on a traditional Mexican staple, highly-rated Resident Taqueria has to be high on the list for anyone’s foodie father. Margaritas are available to pair with any of chef Andrew Savoie’s creations, whether it’s the escargot or the ode to Texas short rib.

Watch a game

Underdog Restaurant and Sports Club | 6750 Abrams Road

After a disappointing week for the Mavericks, watching some Rangers baseball with a cold beer might be the tonic for basketball-related heartache. Operating in a large, open space packed to the brim with TVs, Underdog has craft cocktails, draft beer and most spirits. Light snacks such as fried Brussels sprouts, mac n’ cheese eggrolls, pimento cheese dip and fried pickles are available to satisfy mid-game cravings.
