Always chivalrous with the “ladies first” order of holidays, it’s finally time to give the dads their due. Whether they are fixer-uppers, fishermen, or the type to yell at the TV screen at every sports game (or all of the above), our fathers are some of the most influential figures in our lives. Say your thanks this coming Sunday by taking Dad out for one of these specials. You might have to endure a few embarrassing stories told to the waiters, but hey, that’s why we love our dads.
