Father's Day Brunch and BBQ at Lon's

No matter what else you have planned for pops on Father's Day, Lon's has a couple options that should fit into your schedule. For those looking for early eats they're offering an la carte brunch prepared by Executive Chef Jeremy Pacheco and the LON's culinary team from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday. If dinner looks more like it will fit the bill, they'll also be hosting a Fathers Day BBQ from 5 to 8 p.m. with a selection of barbecued meats accompanied by locally brewed beer specials from San Tan Brewing Company and Sonoran Brewing Company. The BBQ will cost $45 per person or $19 for kids 12 and under. For more information and/or reservations call 602-955-8614 or visit the Lon's website.

Brew at the Zoo

Craft brew aficionados and those with a soft spot for brown bears will want to head down to Tucson for Brew at the Zoo at the Reid Park Zoo. The fundraising event will bring an impressive roster of craft breweries to the zoo to offer tastings and beer including Tucson's Barrio Brewing Company, Four Peaks Brewing Company, Mudshark Brewery and Sentinel Peak Brewing Company. Guests will also receive a commemorative recycled beer bottle sampling glass and will enjoy games, animal encounters, presentations and live music. Proceeds from the evening will go towards the zoo's new Brown Bear exhibit. Tickets cost $40 a person or $50 on the day of the event, which will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday. Discounts available for zoo members. For more information or to purchase tickets visit the Reid Park Zoo website.
