Dad might want some time with the family or maybe with the tv or workshop on his day Sunday. Leading up to it, you can help the whole family find its' zen in though. Healing Arts Yoga is doing outside classes for all ages, every Saturday this month. They're in the James Monroe Museum Garden in downtown Fredericksburg from 9 to 10 a.m. It's eight bucks and you can pay at the gate.
There's also a big festival he might like. The "Grapes and Grains Trail" is at the A. Smith Bowman Distillery, off Route 2 in Fredericksburg, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow. They'll have craft beer, cocktails, wine, food, cigars for sale classic cars and live music.
If you're taking the cooking into your own hands for Dad's Father's Day meal remember, the meat matters. Pass on prepackaged hamburger and buy the "ground beef" label or have it done by a butcher. Mix your spices into burger patties before grilling. Form loose, round balls and press them to 3/4 to an inch thick. Never press them down or flip them too much.
