Theres no better way to say, Dad, youve never been there for me when I needed you, than to take him to a botanical garden on Fathers Day. Thatll show him. But this Sunday expect Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden to be brimming with daddies who arent looking for excuses to bolt from the giant flower garden. Thats because Fairchild is hosting its annual Fathers Day Texas Barbecue Brunch. Let that soak in for a second. Its not often you get barbecue and brunch together. Yummy. Whats better than two distinct food cultures mingling like never before? That merger taking place under the careful watch of established chefs Andrea Curto-Randazzo and Frank Randazzo. The two have created a menu of cinnamon French toast, grits, eggs Benedict Texas-style, slow-cooked beef brisket, pork ribs, and Texas-style catfish. Into sweets? How about pecan tartlets, strawberry-chocolate bread pudding, peach cobbler, and Texas sheet cake. And because its a barbecue brunch, you can indulge in either beer or mimosas for an additional $5 each.
