1. A night at Lumberjacks Axe Throwing


Your Dad will be pumped full of adrenaline after an hour or two of Downtown Longview’s newest sport: Axe Throwing. Sit back and watch him throw sharp objects at wooden targets while you sip a cold brew.

2. A lunch out at The Levee


Lil Earl’s Twisted Q is now serving lunch at The Levee and Dad will love a rib plate with loaded fries or a twisted frito pie with pulled pork. The menu options are endless and you’ll both leave feeling happy and satisfied.

3. A cigar at The Smoking Aces Mobile Cigar Lounge


Even Dads like to be a little bit bad sometimes and a nice cigar and a game of pool fill the bill. You and Dad deserve some time away together and The Smoking Aces provides the masculine atmosphere that guys crave.

Men toasting with beer pilsners


4. A membership to the East Texas Brewers Association


The Homebier Fest is a community favorite and this fun event requires an East Texas Brewers Guild membership to attend. Dad will love sampling home brews and competing in the beer drinking contest. Just make sure to have a designated driver.

5. A round of golf at Nip-It Golf


Sometimes it’s just too hot to tote your clubs outdoors so a trip to the air-conditioned Nip-It Golf Center is the perfect solution. The venue has 5 large state of the art TruGolf simulators, which offer many of the prestigious courses from around the country. Play golf, enjoy a cold brew and an order of Divots— 3 large sliders with your choice of chicken filet with boom-boom sauce or pulled pork with BBQ sauce, sliced dill pickle, mozzarella cheese and purple onion on a lightly toasted slider bun.
