Make It a Happy Father’s Day with Help from the Memorial District

June 11, 2022

It’s time to show Dad some extra love and appreciation, and the Memorial District is the perfect place to do it! We have everything you need right here in the District, including great gifts, memorable dining experiences, and events the whole family can enjoy. Read on for some fabulous Father’s Day ideas.

If your dad loves sports, treat him to a new jersey or his favorite team’s ball cap from Academy Sports and Outdoors (9734 Katy Fwy). If he’s an avid outdoorsman, he will surely enjoy the latest hunting, fishing, or camping gear as he prepares for summertime adventures, so pay a visit to Fishing Tackle Unlimited (10303 Katy Fwy), too.

Speaking of upcoming adventures, we think the men’s collection by Brahmin is a great place to find bags that can function as an airplane carry-on, a weekend carryall, or an office tote. The versatile Beckett tote is always impressive, whether Dad uses it for vacation or in the office. Find a variety of wallets, travel bags, business bags, and backpacks at the retailer’s CITYCENTRE location (796 Town and Country Blvd., Suite 110).

Coach (740 Memorial City Way) offers classic wallets, briefcases, duffel bags, and more that will make any dad’s day. A timeless fragrance, like Coach for Men eau de Toilette, is sure to be a hit. You can also find some unexpected items like an Apple watch strap, slide-on slippers for lounging by the pool, or even a leather jacket.


Then, you could pick out Father’s Day treats from Three Brothers Bakery (12393 Kingsride Lane). Stay on the holiday theme with their deliciously humorous cupcakes decorated with a mustache or a shirt and tie made of frosting. Or, if Dad has a favorite sweet treat, choose from their everyday menu of scrumptious breads, cakes, cookies, and pies. They even sell their own hand-roasted coffee beans, which are the perfect gift for every coffee-lover dad.


Does Dad like to whip up his own creations? At Williams Sonoma (12850 Memorial Dr.), you can find specialty kitchenware for dads who enjoy wearing the chef’s hat and being a grill master. If Dad loves to grill, get him stainless-steel skewers, high-heat nonstick cookware, or a top-quality grill brush. Or go all in this year and get him his very own outdoor pizza oven or Traeger Timberline grill.

Alternatively, you could skip the kitchenware and put together a well-deserved home-cooked meal just for him. Williams Sonoma’s test kitchen menu has a ton of great recipes for dishes like Skillet Spoon Bread and Pork Sliders with Cherry Compote. These dishes could complement some of the great steaks over at Omaha Steaks (650 West Bough Lane).


If Dad is a meat lover, take him to Texas de Brazil (822 Town and Country Blvd) for a delicious gaucho churrasco he will never forget. Be sure to arrive hungry because this upscale Brazilian steakhouse offers a wide range of all-you-can-eat meat, including marinated pork, lamb picanha, filet mignon, and braised beef ribs. There also is a chef-crafted salad bar and authentic Brazilian dishes like feijoada black beans. Finish the meal with a decadent dessert like the Brazilian papaya cream.


If you and Dad would like to spend some extra quality time together, combine a great Father’s Day meal with a hotel stay at The Moran Hotel at 800 Sorella Court in CITYCENTRE. When you book their “STEAKation” staycation deal, Dad gets a $100 gift card to use at Capital Grille (840 W Sam Houston Pkwy N), Eddie V’s (12848 Queensbury Lane), Seasons 52 (842 W Sam Houston Pkwy N) or Yard House (800 Sorella Court). All these restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel. He will feel like a king all night. Click here to book a reservation he is sure to love.


The Memorial District always has fun activities and events to enjoy, too. For example, you could kick off Father’s Day weekend on Friday, June 17, with “Live! On The Lawn” at Memorial City Mall, where you and Dad can enjoy some live music and peruse the Shops Under the Arbor vendors. Food and drinks from Ciro’s Italian Grill (9755 Katy Fwy) will be available for purchase while you sit back, relax, and enjoy songs by musician Chase Demaster. Don’t forget to swing by the Memorial City table at the event to sign up for your chance to win a $100 gift card to Ciro’s.

Last but certainly not least, you and Dad could catch one of this year’s most highly anticipated summer blockbusters like “Jurassic World: Dominion,” “Lightyear,” or “Elvis.” Just look through the showtimes at Cinemark Memorial City(310 Memorial City Way) or Studio Movie Grill (822 Town and Country Blvd), where Dad can sip on this month’s featured drink, the Don Julio Anejo Margarita, a blend of Don Julio Anejo, Grand Marnier, agave nectar and freshly squeezed lime juice served on the rocks with a salt rim.


With the shops, restaurants, cinemas, and special events right here in the Memorial District, you and Dad are sure to have a fun-filled Father’s Day!
