Father’s Day is around the corner, and as DFW restaurants are slowly increasing their capacity for socially distanced dining, they’re finding creative ways to celebrate it. Whether you’d like to stay in or venture out, all of them require some early planning in order to take advantage of their specials. There’s a whiskey tasting for connoisseurs, a few take-home ribeyes for grill masters, a televised PGA Tour for golfers, even a deal for tea and Japanese donuts.

Here are a few of the best meals and specials available for Father’s Day June 21.
