With the busy world that we all live in, it is not always easy to find time to spend with Dad. Sometimes, days and weeks pass by before a person realizes how long it has been since they sat down and shared a drink with Dad just to catch up. That is one of the reasons that Father’s Day exists: To remind people to slow down and give thanks to the man who stood by us since we were small children and helped us grow into adults. With that in mind, there are plenty of places in DFW to celebrate Father’s Day, and here are five great spots to have a Father’s Day drink with Dad.

However, Christies Sports Bar & Grill is a more relaxed option, which can be crazy during big sporting contests, but is also a place to sit back and enjoy some good drinks and even better conversation. For Father’s Day, Christies is a nice spot to stop in to share a drink with Dad while watching one of 43 televisions, including 39 flat-screens and four 10-foot big screens. The sports bar also serves up great pizzas, steaks, appetizers and sandwiches.
