Make a toast to Dad on ~FATHER’S DAY~, Sunday June 17th! Make it a special meal, too, at any of these fine Bay Area establishments.

~GRAND CAFÉ~ will treat dads who bring in “proof of a kid” to a free entrée at brunch (10:30am-2:30pm). Yes, free!

~MAVERICK~ is putting a modern twist on a classic breakfast dish to celebrate dad. It’s steak, eggs, and beer for $20; specifically, flatiron steak, a smoked soft egg, coffee-red wine butter, home fries, and gravy made with Lucky Hand Organic Black Lager from Santa Cruz, plus a 7-ounce pour of the same beer.

For meat-eating dads, consider ~ESPETUS CHURRASCARIA~. Both locations will offer a $54.95 prix-fixe all-you-can-eat Brazilian rodizio menu, including a salad bar, hot side dishes, and 12 to 14 varieties of skewered meat carved tableside. Noon-10pm.

Also consider ~ALEXANDER’S STEAKHOUSE~’s Sunday prime rib special ($35) with a side dish and signature hamachi shooter, or order from the regular à la carte menu. 5:30pm-9pm.

~ABSINTHE BRASSERIE & BAR~ will be serving a Father’s Day “Surf and Turf” special with a 10-ounce rib-eye, Hawaiian blue prawns, and roasted potatoes, in addition to their usual menu offerings. Fortunately for you, one doesn’t have to be a Dad to get the special.

~THE PRESIDIO SOCIAL CLUB~ will be celebrating fathers and summer generally with a rollicking, vintage Hawaiian-themed whole pig roast from 4pm-7pm on Sunday. Yep, you heard that right. And get this: there will be a costume contest, and the prize is a pig roast at your house. So get your cat-eye sunglasses and Aunt Mimi’s muumuu out of the closet and get over there. There will also be live reggae, passed pork sliders for a buck, Mai Tai specials, and pupu platters available. If your Dad is a meat nerd (and whose isn’t, really?), get there at 3pm for a pig carving class with chef Ray Tang.

~THE VILLAGE PUB~ in Woodside celebrates dad with a four-course brunch menu ($55), or order off the regular menu for dinner.

Down in Los Gatos, ~DIO DEKA~ will be serving a special Father’s Day brunch from 10am-2pm. The menu will include steak and eggs (Greek-style!), and lamb meatballs. 

Dads can join ~DISCOVERY STREET TOURS~ for free on June 17th for The Science of Bread and Cheese Walking Tour. Kids are welcome; suggested minimum age is 10. 1:30pm-4pm. $65 per person, includes tastings and picnic; dads use discount code Daddy-O. Tour begins at Allyne Park at Green and Gough Sts.

~DELISE~ will have some special offerings for Father’s Day weekend (June 15th-17th), including That’s a Boy (cigar and Johnnie Walker Black Label Scotch) ice cream, and caramel popcorn with bacon and roasted cocoa nibs.

Happy Father’s Day!
